Are you a traveller?
I am making a presumption that at need point in your life you have been a visitor. You have carried a map, a camera, perhaps had a tourist guide.
You have went to different destinations, relaxed on remote beaches, climbed steps in buildings you see on TV. You have done all these things but some how when you get arrive home, all of your left with is a short memory, and 1 or 2 photos. Holidays are nice once in a while, but it isn’t making sense to me why we are going to travel thousands of miles to sit in hotel rooms and watch films, or lie on a pool deck and catch some rays. You wish to soak in the maximum amount of the new country and culture you can instead of bring the maximum amount of your culture to them.
In one step you want to forget your technique of live, and adopt theirs. It’s straightforward stuff like the attitude that we have when we are going abroad, and what we bring. Don’t bring all the things that we rely on in The United States. Bring what it is that you will need to survive and enjoy health during your visit. The more comforts you have, the more that you will rely on them, and the less you may step out to become the traveler you should be! Put yourself out there. Neighbors are always interested to engage with foreigners, and it is often best to exploit this.
Meet folks you can share life with while you are in their country. Dunk into their culture and be open to new idea’s. Lots of times we are closed to new idea’s and we lose out on possibilities for better things to come along. Be open, prepared and accepting. If you would like to be modified, and to experience you want to leave the holiday maker at home. Bring out the inside traveler in you and see the world in the way it was supposed to be seen.
