Traveling isn’t just about seeing perfect places, seeing humungous mountains, crystal clear water or meeting great people or even tasting the best food that place can offer. Traveling is also about learning and knowing yourself more. While traveling there are a lot of possible things that you can learn, you will learn how to be independent, you will learn how to survive in different situations, you will learn how to respect and learn the culture of the other nationality. Traveling will also bring the best in you. Don’t let your trip be just a trip of sight-seeing, or eating. Let your trip, be the trip of learning, understanding and experiencing. You don’t necessarily need to enroll in a class to learn or to spend time in tourist guiding, because learning different traits or attitudes will come along your way, what you need to know is how you will embrace it and how you will imposed it your life. Make sure that the things that you will accept in your life is the things that are good and worth it. Here are some of the things that you can learn while traveling.
- Once you’re interested in the local culture, people open up more. Knowing the culture and history of the place you will travel is very important matter in traveling. There are a lot of museums and exhibits where you can learn these things, but many people believe that the most significant way in knowing their culture is meeting the locals. If you become very interested to their culture the best choice to approach is the locals, because if the locals feel that you became more interested in their culture they became more interested in teaching and sharing it. Why? Because they know that letting you know their culture is one way for them to promote it and to show that they are proud about it.
- Don’t judge the country by its media coverage. This is the usual mistakes of people around the world. People will judge the place based on what they hear and what they read that is very wrong, because like people you cannot judge the place by its cover, unless you see it personally. Allowing this negativity about the place is one of the biggest factors why the place is less visited and has fewer tourists. Don’t listen to any negative feedback that the intention is to destroy the place reputation, rather listen to the credible sources. But don’t set aside negativity if your life will be at stake.
- Everything is food here. Whatever they serve to you is food, a food that you must eat. Eating the food they serve to you is one way of respecting the culture and the people. Make sure that when you are traveling to other places you are ready for whatever food they might serve. You are not in your place, so don’t look for the food that they don’t have. Take note that everything here is food. Respecting their food is also respecting their culture. Make sure that you also know some of the etiquettes of the place, because there are some place that has eating etiquettes.
Here are some of the things that you will learn and you should learn for you to be a better traveler and not to disrespect their culture and the people, because it is good in the feeling to travel in the place that you know how to act and how to respect. Respect them for you to be respected as well.
