10 Things That Are Always Better When Travelling

There are some things travel just makes better, like a sip of Coke while in Paris for example. And while it's totally understandable that just about everything would taste better in the "City of Love", it gets the mind thinking: what else is better when on the road?

There's something about a hot, fresh samosa from a street-side vendor in Delhi but surely it can't just be the spices. Maybe it's the little things about travel, like pausing a bit longer for the scenery. With no meetings or deadlines, our only interruption can be the view.

Travel also makes the heart grow fond of home, and sometimes after one-too-many stopovers, we wonder why we left in the first place. So, in the spirit of adventure and all that come with it, here's our list of things that are somehow always better when travelling. What are yours?
