Travel and Creativity

What does travel have to do with creativity?

According to Csikszentmihalyi (2013), the intersection of cultures became places where creativity flourished. Traveling allows you to become a microcosm of places like Ancient Greece, Renaissance Italy and 19th Century France. You gain new knowledge, and if you do it right, you replenish your well while increasing the life experience you can draw from. Walt Disney, Ed Catmull, Will Smith, and artist DaNi are among the people who recommend travel to improve creativity.
