Traveling is important because it helps us to learn about the world we live in. Today, technology can show us every corner of the world. But traveling means that you actually go to these places, walk on their streets, eat their food and interact with people who live there. Going to a foreign country is very easy today with many types of transportation available.
There are also some dangers, though. In many tourist areas there are pickpockets, and traveling alone can be a risk because you can get lost and not know anyone who can help you. Some countries have dangerous animals, plants or places which can be harmful if you are a tourist and do not know.
Finally, in spite of the possible problems, learning a foreign language and going to the country where the people speak the language is rewarding. You can talk about the life you know and learn about their lives. Later, you might even be able to use the foreign language to find a job!
