Finance Minister Bishnu Prasad Poudel announced so while reading out the budget statement for the upcoming fiscal at the meeting of the Legislature-Parliament today. Minister Poudel said that the government, underscoring the reconstruction operation, has allocated the amount after estimation on annual revenue and expenditure. Stating that the need of the hour was to fight against poverty and backwardness which were against the social justice, Poudel asserted that the budget was aimed at attaining economic growth and prosperity. The budget, first since the promulgation of new constitution on September 20, 2015, has been prepared after soliciting suggestions from the parliamentarians, according to Minister Poudel, who assured that that adequate budget has been allocated for implementation of federal structure as stipulated in the new constitution.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
