There is something peaceful and calming about going to a place where no one knows you and you can just be anonymous. It is an easier way for you to throw your weight around and simply enjoy life without having to worry about what the next person, who doesn’t know you, will say. It is that feeling of mystery that ought to encourage people to travel.
