Travel is one of the adopted activities which requires movement from one geographical area to another. It can involve by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, or other means. This also depends on the distance one is travelling.
People travel with a number of reasons that is to say; recreation, tourism, vacation, research travel (the gathering of information), visiting people, volunteer travel for charity, migration to begin life somewhere else, religious pilgrimages/mission trips, business travel/trade and many others. All these may be either educative, religious or entertaining.
Travelling has an association with knowledge and education in so many ways. For instance, the fact that one is leaving their area to another, he or she has to learn something new. This maybe deliberately or not.
There are different societies, norms, cultures as well as people in the world. However, one may not know everything about all these until they decide to travel around. It says that ‘seeing is believing’ therefore what one sees on television is best when they actually travel to particular places.
Many countries today have engaged in tourism whereby they have made reserves of their cultures in places like museums, wildlife reservations and son on. This encourages knowledge through travel in a way that there are educational sessions. Also, there is always information about the reserves for visitors to refer to.
In Uganda today, different schools have embraced knowledge through travelling. This is in such a way that they have introduced field trips to different regions of the country in order to allow knowledge outside class. The western part of Uganda is frequently visited because of its geographical landscapes.
It is important to note that many people from outside Uganda have also come to study about the landscape as well as the wildlife of the country. It is believed that Uganda is the Pearl of Africa because of its beautiful nature.
