There is an opinion that the most interesting places to visit are exotic sites. I don't fully agree with this statement because not only exotic sites can be interesting to see.
On the one hand, quite a few travellers prefer places that strike their imagination more than others. There are plenty of such places in one's native country. Moreover, I think that not everybody knows well the beauties of one's homeland and it is never late to explore them. Besides, for some of us travelling far away from home is bad for health because you should cope with the jetlag and to get used to a different climate and cuisine.
On the other hand, everybody wants to get fresh impressions far away. Take an example of somebody living in the cold North, who has never seen the rich colours of the southern nature with its magnificent richness. People should certainly learn during their lives and it is interesting to visit remote places and to experience a different culture and lifestyle.
To argue with the previous paragraph, I would like to say that there is no need to travel far away for unforgettable impressions. Talking about changing the scene I would like to say that some people still prefer their native environment because every trip gets you feel stressed. Further on, one can take much pleasure in meeting spring, summer, autumn and winter in one's native place.
To sum it all up, I would like to say that taking a chance to visit an exotic place is fine with me but the place where you live permanently has also much in store to discover.
