How much life can you live in a day?
That's an interesting question. Because in a quote well defined, Life could be put simply in few words:
"To see the world, things dangerous to come to,
to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other,
and to feel. That is the purpose of life."
I never had any money to travel to distant countries, meet different people and soak up their culture. This does not stop me from sneaking out some time for exploring the world.
My last trip while I was on a scholarship to travel to attend a conference in Cambridge, UK. I planned my trip to have a long layover of 1 day in Dubai and Dublin to allow me explore these places. Wandering could be fun. And from my experience, it could teach you things which they don't teach you in school.
This allowed to get to 4 different cities in 3 different countries in 2 different continents in just one week. You see life change everyday around you and the feel you get is worth all the hassle during the travel.
