In the 18th Century, it would take at least 6 months to travel from England to India. People would undertake dangerous journeys, in search of better opportunities. Like when the British came to India. They undertook a dangerous journey to exploit the wealth of India and take it back home for themselves.
Travel also allows various societies to interact with each other. Today, it takes only 11 hours to complete the same journey which used to take 6 months. It enables the people to meet new people! We are slowly evolving a world culture, human culture. Rather than the unique cultures we used to have before (Eg. Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Indian). Indeed, this takes away the pleasures of experiencing a new culture, but it allows us to feel like a single race, a single civilization and maybe one day, a single nation.
