Paris on a Budget? 3 Travel Myths You Should Stop Believing Traveling has many social and educational benefits, but some people have hesitations that prevent them from jetting off on new adventures.

When you know your price limits and what you want to do, traveling can be a fun and inexpensive venture. MYTH: TRAVELING IS DANGEROUS. FACT: If you’re smart about what you do and where you go, traveling can be safe. Go with your gut and only stay somewhere that is approved by travel guides.
