A geographer's trip to the humanities

What does a geographer see on a trip
Author Lee Youngman
Travel is always comprised of travelers, destinations, and people; these three components cannot be weighed. Travelers must understand me correctly and recognize the world's diversity again by acknowledging the difference between traveling and communicating. This is because the issue of geography, how to view unfamiliar objects in the destination, is not very dealt with. Whenever the 'where' and 'where' problems are neglected, I wonder. Will reflection be possible if encounters with unfamiliar places are not properly achieved? Wouldn't the depth of reflection change depending on how you meet unfamiliar places? Travel is an excellent process of knowing about yourself based on knowing a place, so it is a beautiful process to gauge and shape yourself in the future. Travel is enriched with experience and knowledge in life. Life is travel, and travel is life. Therefore, travel must be fun to live a pleasant life. And life is fun when you know the geography and go on a trip.
The new house I moved into, my new workplace after graduation and resignation, and the unfamiliar places I courageously entered to carry out my new job… They all make my mind anxious and afraid. However, the effort to overcome the anxiety and fear caused by the unfamiliar and the effort to make the unfamiliar as familiar is a valuable life journey. And travel is the experience of feeling this new sense of place, that is, going out of place. Therefore, travel is intentionally planning and practicing experiences that are out of place and looking unfamiliar at familiar experiences.
I can't forget my first experience of leaving my neighborhood. It was a trip to Woljeongsa Temple with my grandfather in elementary school. It was a journey that my grandfather, who used a rotating frame to make pottery, left to get materials.
