People have a lot of different reasons why they want to travel. For most people, they simply love the spectacle of traveling, and being able to see places that are not their own. Others want to learn more about the culture of a certain country, and what better way to do so than going to the country themselves. Also, there are people who simply want to know what it feels like to live in a certain area and experience how people from other country go about their daily routines and such.
If you fall on the last group of people, then you most certainly require a lot of research and planning when going about on your travels.
