I don't really get traveling. This post may sound silly but I promise these are legitimate questions. I've only travelled within my own country (Canada) so I don't really have much experience.
1. What do you do in the place you travel to? Is it essentially just walking around and enjoying the sights?
2. How is it possible for (non-rich) people to travel for long periods of time? Some girl in my uni classes is taking the year off to spend a year "traveling Asia". She's not rich, and wouldn't this be incredibly expensive? I don't get how this is possible.
3. Also, isn't traveling to several countries in a row very complicated? I'm of the understanding that you would need to get all sorts of visas and travel documents and book flights and organize accommodation, currency and transportation, and to me this seems so stressful I can't imagine even enjoying it.
4. (Sort of a bonus question) What's a good, cheap place to travel to from Canada for someone inexperienced with international travel?
