高三阅读理解I’d always wondered what the point of traveling

I’d always wondered what the point of traveling was. If we’re only going to end up back in our daily routine anyway, aren’t we just cheating ourselves?

Sept 27 is World Tourism Day. It also happens to be exactly three months from the day my three friends and I left for a one-week trip to Moalboal, Philippines, to learn scuba diving (水肺潜水).

It wasn’t the typical relaxing vacation that most people would have taken. We spent our first morning sitting in a room watching tutorial (教学的)videos, while the rest of the days we would practice what we’d learned from the video with our instructor, first in the pool and then in the sea. Every day, we had to dress ourselves up in a tight diving suit and a jacket with a heavy steel tank on the back.

But somehow, the experience changed us.
For starters, it allowed us to get to know ourselves better. When we had to fully concentrate on our breathing underwater - even a little bit of difference in the amount of air we breathed in or out could have changed our buoyancy (浮力)-we started to realize how we,d been taking it for granted and had never truly “felt” ourselves breathe.

And its influence continues.

During the three months that we’ve been back from the trip, we’ve visited two diving expositions (展览会)-something we wouldn’t have been interested in before - where we learned about freediving, which is diving holding your breath, without an extra supply of air. We were fascinated and signed up for freediving courses without hesitation. Just like that, we got ourselves yet another new hobby.

The trip also gave me the idea of documenting our underwater adventure in the form of a film. I knew nothing about filmmaking, so I decided to teach myself how to use movie-editing software. Two months of trial and error later, I ended up with a pretty satisfactory 20-minute-long film, and I can now add “moviemaker” to my list of achievements, next to “scuba diver”

Six months ago, did I expect all these new experiences would be in my future? Of course not.

So while it may be true that there’s no escape from our daily routine, at least by traveling we can always escape our “old self”,and maybe even pick up some new skills.
