  1. Why someone wants to go away
  2. The impression made on the native people
  3. Going away is the best way to find oneself back

Travels are among the most important experiences one can recall. To understand why they are so appealing, one must consider the gap that exists between the expectations they have of the trip, and what they actually find during it. Just like Christopher Columbus landing in America in 1492, we are forced to wonder who we are, when we meet newness. Going on a vacation, is a dream many hold dear. However, few are able to make it come true. It is difficult to explain why one wants to go away, and it is even harder to try and explain what one experiences. People often leave because they feel the need to discover new places; what often happens is that they discover more about themselves than about the country they are visiting. By presenting themselves to strangers, they become aware of their identity, which they rejected before they left.
