…this is something i’ve come to know

The structure to come to do something is used to talk about something that you do gradually, eventually, or after a period of time. e.g. I didn’t like Jack when I first met him, but I’ve got to know him quite well over the last few years and I’ve come see him as one of my best friends. 

…and embrace

The verb to embrace someone/something literally means to hug someone/something. It can also be used metaphorically to mean that you accept something in a very positive or enthusiastic way. e.g. Jessica has always been someone who embraces new technology.

…except when it comes to travel

When it comes to is an extremely useful phrase that can be used to focus on something specific. e.g. When it comes to company law, not many people in the country know as much as Stephen.
