There are many who view traveling as an unnecessary expense, a mere luxury, and a liability they can easily do without. Paying the bills, saving up for retirement, and investing their money soundly always take precedence over traveling. But little do most of us realize is that one of the best investments we can ever make is in our education. And traveling is certainly one of the best forms of hands-on, experiential learning.

When we travel, our eyes are opened and our horizons are broadened. It makes us realize how vast the wonders of this world are. Making it a point to visit at least one new destination every year is not a lofty goal; it’s very attainable if you’re diligently able to save up for it. Apart from experiencing the culture, eating the food, and meeting the people, the landmarks themselves are certainly worth the trip. Sites that are rooted in legend are made all the more fascinating because of the mysterious stories and hidden history behind them. These are some of the many spots in different corners of the world that have beautiful backstories behind them and hence, are certainly worth visiting.

Rich in history and filled with legends, Glastonbury in England is most famous for being the site of two historical figures and a common object that both persons held much reverence for: the Holy Grail. It’s said that Joseph of Arimathea, the disciple who took Jesus’ body after crucifixion, fled to Britain and settled in Glastonbury, bringing with him the Holy Grail. Legend says that he buried the Grail at the foot of Glastonbury Tor, the hill overlooking the Isle of Avalon, which brings us to the legend of the once and future king buried in said isle, King Arthur. It’s been said that Arthur’s Camelot was located in Glastonbury and that he buried the Holy Grail, the greatest treasure he unearthed during his crusades, under Glastonbury Tor.
