As human beings, our tactic of survival has been to stay with the familiar. The pre-historic man would live in groups to ensure survival, he would set up camp and hunt in familiar territories. Our entire civilization was built on this basic principle. We built cities, we built forts, and we created territories and nations based on language, culture, food, etc. Even now, we love to live in familiar areas, go to familiar shops and visit familiar destinations. Safety and survival are the core human priorities driven into our primitive brain. This is why we are fascinated with people who brave the odds, travel to unknown places, take risks, swim in the big ocean, or trek into dense forests.
