Surveillance cameras have captured the breathtaking moment when a four-year-old boy playing on a scooter was run over by a car in southwest China's Sichuan Province. The video, filmed on June 27 in Suining city, shows the boy playing unattended on the street in front of a residential area. A car slowly drives towards the boy, hitting the youngster before stopping with its left front wheel on top of him. The boy was in the driver’s blind zone. The owner of a nearby store witnessed the accident and shouted for the driver to stop the car. Pedestrians quickly became aware of the situation and came to join in the rescue. In the following minutes, they succeeded in lifting the car and saving the boy. He was sent to hospital immediately and thanks to timely medical treatment, is now in a stable condition and recovering well.
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.
