What A Fabulous World Indeed!
The world is big and beautiful! It really is! However, it is a great shame that not enough people have been able to go travel and see it for themselves. Many people barely venture out of their own country. When they do head overseas, they tend to gravitate towards the more touristy locations, and although it is fun, there are a lot of other unexplored destinations that they could be missing out! If you want to grow as a person, you need to learn how to explore the world – you need to travel, travel and travel. I know that sounds expensive but we could show you different ways how to still explore the world on a budget. So, there are no more excuses! Trust me that by subscribing to our blog, you would want to travel not only to the famous vacation destinations but also to the different unexplored hidden paradises that the world offers!
Learn Other People’s Culture
Traveling the world is not just fun but it lets you see and understand other people’s culture as well. One of the biggest concerns of mine is the fact that there are many people out there who do not understand other cultures. They seem almost ‘scared’ of them. Well, perhaps that is the wrong word to use. They look down on these other cultures and think their own is a superior one. This is not good. Seasoned travelers can get around this. They can go and live in the areas where these cultures are, and get to experience first-hand the traditions and the like. This is the best thing about traveling: learning about people who are different to you. There are many people out there who claim that America is vast and full of cultures to the point where you do not need to travel anywhere else. The fact is, it is not. America is bland in comparison to some countries out there on a culture level. Travel. Just travel. Travel outside of America (or Europe or wherever your home country is), and you will see just how large this world is. There is a great diversity in terms of culture from all over the world and the only way to know and understand other people is by meeting them in person! You will be surprised just how other people from other parts of the world do certain things.
See Famous Wonders of the World
One of the other reasons as to why most people love traveling is because they want to see famous locations. It is great reading about them in books. You have probably been doing this throughout your life. However, this is no substitute for seeing the sights ‘in the flesh’. Take ‘The Great Pyramid’ in Egypt, for example. In books, it looks stunning. However, unless you travel there, you are never really going to get a feel for just how large this place actually is. As a side note, if you do travel to this location, then you will learn about the world of Ancient Egypt, this is incredibly important as the culture that developed there is a culture which had an impact on the world that you live in today.
See the Unexplored Destinations
I also believe that traveling is not just about those larger sights, either. When you explore the world, you will be able to feast your eyes about the sights that people barely talk about. The ones that are a bit out of the way of tourist areas. This means that you will have stories to tell. Sure, visit top locations. However, surely, a better story will be telling people how you walked up a rather large mountain to reach a monastery, right? That is where the real adventure is, and you are only going to have that if you explore this planet! If you try to skip those famous sights, and there is still plenty to explore. I am willing to bet that most of the people reading this page will have travelled to a zoo of some description, perhaps to see some gorgeous animals. This is good, if you go to a zoo which knows how to look after them (very few of them do), but you know what is going to be even better? Actually seeing these animals in their natural habitat, doing what they are supposed to do. It is thrilling. It is an experience that you can’t repeat anywhere else. When you see animals in their habitat, you will be able to experience the beautiful scenery that surrounds them too. This is what you want. To get an idea of the true scale of the planet that you live in.
Explore the World With Ease
If you are ready to get the most out of this planet, then I suggest that you travel light too. Ditch some of those ‘creature comforts’. You do not need to take a computer or anything like that. Pack a few clothes, maybe a guidebook or a plan of the places that you are going to be visiting, and away you go. There is nothing better than that. If you need small items, then I am positive that you will be able to pick them up along the way! Of course, when you travel light, it is going to be easier for you to get from place to place. You really do not want to have a suitcase in tow. This is going to tie you to hotel all of the time. You really will not get a chance to explore.
See the World By Different Means of Transportation
So now you might ask, how do I go about traveling to these places? Well, you can always hop on a plane and get there right away. However, you are missing out on half of the beauty of the world when you travel like this. Yes, it is convenient but seasoned travelers will know that if you want to see what the world has to offer, then you need to use different modes of transport. Maybe hop on a boat, a train, or even a bus. Yes, it is going to take you a lot longer to get somewhere, but that is part of the thrill. When you get on a plane, you are just going to be ferried from one location to another location. There is no fun. Just one popular place after another. If you take one of the slower methods of transport, then you will be able to experience smaller places along the way. In fact, you may even want to take a look at the route that you are traveling along and make a couple of stops along the way. This way you will be able to experience those smaller villages which are out of the tourist hot spots. This is where the real culture is. This is where the real adventure is, and that is something that you are genuinely going to love!
