I really like this quote and it got me thinking. One who does not experience what other places are like can only base life off of what they know. They don't know how blue the water of the Bahamas is or how it feels to stare up at the Eiffel Tower. They haven't been able to see the different cultures of the world and how they act. They only know what they know because of what they've seen in pictures or heard from other people. This does not give them the knowledge that they need about other places.

St. Augustine hit this saying out of the ball park. Sometimes when I try taking picutres of the sky or of a scene, I will delete the picture because it just isnt the same as in realy life. I really think that traveling gives people a reality shock when seeing new phenomena.

What i think this quote means is that you may think you know a lot about the world but until you go and travel to different places you will not fully understand the world. I also think it means that there is so many different things to experience on earth.
