Some people (including myself) want to travel all over the globe just to see it. Why is this a good dream, what is the point of seeing everything. What do you do after you have seen it all?

Prairies of New Zealand - It was a joy watching these sheep graze, thousands of them that looked like cotton balls from a distance
I have travelled a lot and have not just seen but have also felt the place. Travelling is all about seeing and feeling. When I am out there, I look around for what I have so been only reading and the thrill I get to see what I only read so far is a different kind of experience. I remember when I was a kid I read about the prairies of New Zealand which ran into miles and miles with sheep grazing and I need not explain what that experience was. I could go on and on narrating my experiences having toured several countries.

And all these sights and feelings are stored in my memory to be relived whenever I want to.

For me, it gives me a deep sense of satisfaction. It's more on how you feel when you see it.

No person however keen on traveling can see everything in the world. I am now 39 years old and have been traveling to lots of different places but I haven't seen it all. I have been to more than fifty different countries. I intend to carry on traveling until I am not able to anymore like very old age. My favorite countries that I have traveled to so far are Samoa, Australia, New Zealand, Belize and the Seychelles. It is an excellent idea of yours to see as much as possible in the world.

sometimes we based our decision in life based on what we saw in our surroundings, but when you have the chance to travel around the globe and notify, learn their culture, their situations, analyze, and we will become an open minded person since we go out of the vacuum of limited thinking.....

Others may find it as an experience of seeing different cultures around the world. Others view it as a continuing learning routine outside the classroom. As some would say, "The world is like a book." Traveling to different countries is like reading different pages of that book. You won't know the next page unless you travel and see it for yourself. Others may find it just a way to relax and enjoy the different surroundings for them to get away for sometime from their usual days at home and at work. As for me, I see it as my passion. The thought of traveling around the world and seeing it all, gives me great excitement and enthusiasm to fulfill it. That gives me the drive to work hard everyday so as to reach that passion of mine. So to answer your last question what do you do after we have seen it all if we actually do, that depends on everyone's view. For me, it is just fulfillment. It is like living in ecstasy when I reach the peak of my greatest desire in the world. hehehe...

I think, if I had the means to travel around the world and see everything (is it really possible to see everything when new things are being built all the time?), when I was finished I would want to go back to some of my favorite places and spend more time, maybe even live there for a while.
