Philosophy (Morality Politics, and Law) and Civic and Economic Thought and Leadership
Some reasons people discount travel include the fear of the unknown and the discomfort of being in an environment that is not familiar to us. However, the times in which we experience the most growth are when we put ourselves in foreign environments; we are forced to break out of our routine and explore different parts of ourselves. This is especially meaningful in an environment like Washington D.C. where you are surrounded by many like-minded, motivated, intelligent people who are there to making a difference.

My favorite saying is "get comfortable with being uncomfortable". Whatever it is that is holding you back from taking that leap of faith and exploring the world, know that the feeling is only temporary. Travel grows you and shapes you, you learn things about the world and things about yourself that you would have never known. Go out and explore, learn a new language, experience a new culture, try new food, live like a local.
