What lessons have you learned from traveling?
When I give this some thought, I never really thought of my traveling as a lesson to be learned each time I got on the road — I only thought of the adventure, so when I made this list (very short list) it was hard because I am sure there has a been a time where something didn’t go as planned during my roadtrip and I made it a point to not have it happen again, but nothing came to mind right away, so I might possibly come back to this question if anything should arise. Hopefully many of my travellers who follow my blog, will have many things to say, especially those who travel long days on foot, car, plane, train, etc. So don’t be afraid to share your lessons, who knows? it might spark my light bulb just enough for me to add it to my own list.
- I have learned that different cultures & environments breed people to react towards me differently.
- Always to research the area(s) that I plan on traveling to beforehand
- if I can, travel with a buddy for safety or have an emergency contact in case something was to happen
- Always alert friends/family of your travels before heading out, so everyone is well aware of where you are going, who you will be with, etc in case again, an emergency should happen.
If you are someone who has never traveled before, these four rules will come very handy to you, no matter where you go because they are just common sense things to do for your own safety but also, be sure to have your electronics (phones/tablets) charged fully as well, because you never want to be someplace unknown with no way of calling in case something should happen. In times like this, being too cautious is a strength.
