General discussion of the utility of travel
NotesThe reviewer of the contest, count Laurencin, judged - probably correctly - this essay for being long-winded and pompous. The author believes travelling to be beneficial in a variety of ways. Indeed, for the simple benefit of learning the ways of foreign nations, it might be less suited for some - but in all cases, it will elevate the spirit and the heart of those who do travel.
