A bore who's done everything first, or a truly great and eccentric explorer - which of these 10 types of traveller best describes you?
If you’re open and willing, travel will make you an incredibly more well-rounded human being. And that’s really the goal.
All the challenges and opportunities travel lays at your feet help you discover who you are in a way that’s only possible on the road.
Gone are the days when traveling abroad was just a pastime designed for the rich. Nowadays the market is awash with really convenient plane/bus/train tickets and travel packages.
This is probably my favorite reason to travel abroad. I truly believe that one has so much to learn from people belonging to different nationalities, cultures and religions, and nothing compares to the feeling of establishing friendships across borders. Furthermore, it is wonderful to travel to a certain country and already know someone there who you can visit and who can show you around like a local.
If you’re like many, you spend too much time indoors. Travel forces you to get outside again, breathe in fresh air and enjoy nature’s restorative and calming qualities.
Even spending an afternoon at the beach or exploring a new town will allow you to experience some, if not all of the benefits of travel. For maximum impact, however, plan time to travel. Imagine where you’d like to go and make it happen. You’ll be surprised how happy it can make you feel.
Be open to new cultures and different (sometimes better) ways of thinking. Your life has the potential to grow in unlimited ways just by being open to learning new things.
If you find something confronting, or you don’t agree with, instead of being judgmental and hurtful simply say, “It’s not better or worse, just different.” Or “Isn’t that interesting? Tell me more.” And then open your mind to understand.
The only luck I believe in is the one which determines where you were born. If you are traveling the world, you are privileged. Be grateful for this and use that as a means to wander the world with the eyes of a child.
Look at how beautiful the planet is. See how amazing every thundering waterfall, dancing gazelle, unconquerable mountain, and smiling, toothless market trader really is.
Traveler or tourist, we come across many biases and presumptions as we set to travel.
