LOVE TO LEARN ABOUT CULTURE? THEN TRAVEL

There was a time when the idea of an internet is still unhatched in the minds of the genius few. The trend of those times was to have a foreign correspondence. They were called then as pen pals or pen friends. The more penpals you have and the more foreign they were, make you popular in those times. But popular or not, the first thing pen pals wanted to tell you then was their customs and traditions, beliefs, arts. And it is also what they wanted to know from you. 


       Culture is the entirety of beliefs, customs, traditions, arts, laws, and nature. It sums up that people anywhere in the world are interested or just curious to know the culture of foreign people they know or meet.

     Culture plays a significant part of a person living in different countries. Difference in culture should not be a hindrance to friendships. Acceptance and respect of each other’s differences can bridge any gap in between.

     It is important to know  the culture of a country you want to visit. This is not for the purpose of forming some biased opinion of the place but to make sure that you will not offend the locals.

Here are some practices and necessities that is universal but treated in a unique way by people in different countries:

MARRIAGE

   Marriage rites are done in different ways depending on what part of the world you are in. In cases of intermarriage with different nationality and different traditions, both parties should be in agreement on how they will tie the knot. 

HOLIDAYS & FEASTS

     Christmas time can be an ideal time to travel though in some countries, families are supposed to be together on this occasion. By choosing this time to travel, you will be able to observe how foreign people celebrate theirs. You may see it in the movies or in the newscast but being there is learning first hand.

     Each nationality celebrates different holidays and feasts important to them.

    Respect the culture that do not believe on what you normally celebrate and do.

FOOD

    Every country has a unique way of preparing their food and have a distinct flavor. Anywhere in the world has its own specialty and that is one good reason to travel. You get to experience the taste of what each country is good at. The aroma and taste of food can trigger memories. Once you can encounter it again, you can remember the place.

There are also different ways and utensils used for eating. Spoon and fork are used in general. Others use chopsticks. There are also people who use their hands. It would be exciting to go places and eat their food the way the locals do.

HOW TO GREET PEOPLE

     Know this before you travel. It would be nice to get this knowledge into practice. Whether you shake hands with them, put the back of their hand on your forehead, or bow to greet them.

SPORTS

     Every culture has their own sports. When you travel, make sure to buy a ticket to their most loved sports. Be there with the crowd. Experience what it is to be in a game that you only get to watch on television.

Different people in different places with different culture. Travel and get to know them. The world is waiting for you to explore.


REASONS WHY WE NEED TO TRAVEL

There are a thousand reasons why we need to travel but it only takes a few to know that  it is beneficial.


RETREAT

       If you are experiencing a not so pleasant situation or besieged by personal problems, traveling can be a sort of therapy. It could be a time to meditate, to discern the things you think you’ve done wrong, for you to be able to correct. And you will go home a new person.

RELAXATION

     The human body needs time to rest and get rid of the stress and pressure building up doing your daily routine you may think as boring. Travel can help you to be able to continue living a healthy life. Traveling is one way to relax. Just don’t overdo it.

TO SEE THE WORLD & LEARN

       The world has been there since the beginning and open for us to see. If given the opportunity, travel and savor the moment to learn and appreciate the diversity of culture. Visiting different places, knowing different people, tasting a diversity of food, learning different languages (even just a few lines) is exciting. You will come to love other races other than your own. And appreciate more the part of the world you call home.

TO BUILD UP CONFIDENCE

     If you are the dependent type, cannot go to the mall without company, cannot eat out on your own, there is still hope. Try traveling alone. It doesn’t have to be far from your home as a start up. Get the feel of being independent. Decide for your own. Don’t be scared to be alone or to be left alone. At some point in our lives, it is beneficial to be alone.

SOCIALIZATION

    If you are an outgoing person, traveling promises lots of opportunities for you to meet new acquaintances that can turn into lasting friendship. If you are the opposite, traveling can be an instrument for you to experience life in a different light.

       Social media is a great tool for socializing and building friendship but virtual socialization is a far cry from the real thing. Meeting people face to face is not yet out of style. 

LIFE-CHANGING

       If you think your life needs to make a 360° turn, then travel. Traveling gives you the chance to think and focus on the things you are just taking for granted. The time you will spend in a different surrounding can make you objective. The events and things that make you subconsciously uncomfortable, can now have the chance to be sorted. And to resolve some bothering issues would become easier.

COLLECT BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES

        A collection of memories is a by-product of traveling and you marked them as unforgettable. Everytime you remember them, it will leave warmth feelings in your heart. 

     You can take with you bagful of souvenirs that can be lost and destroyed in time but the memories you collected from the places you’ve traveled in, are forever etched in you. Old age and sickness may make you forget them. But the heart can still feel what the mind might forget.

To everyone, reason or no reason, travel. Believe it or not, traveling is beneficial. For your health and for your well-being.

Do you want to travel but on a Tight Budget? Worry No More!

Trendy beautiful young female traveller with a piggy bank balanced on her suitcase and her sunglasses on her head smiling in satisfaction that her savings with pay for her travel and holidays

Growing up in a small town sometimes limits people to build dreams. For girls, getting married right after high school sometimes comes on top of the list while boys thought of earning a living so they can start to take responsibilities in the family. Sadly, studying in college or earning a degree, or even goes out of that small town where they grew up comes last on the list or not even part of the list at all.

          These thoughts aren’t bad I must say. However, the world is big and it offers many opportunities for individuals to explore, to discover, and to experience. It just depends on the person if he or she is willing to take the risks and if that person is courageous enough to add to these so-called limited ideas of dreams.

          To see the world seems very elusive. People sometimes tagged it as the most expensive dream.  Plane tickets, hotel accommodations, food and transport expenses not to mention the souvenirs are just few reasons why traveling is sometimes branded as extravagant.

          But are these enough reasons to stop oneself from seeing the world? Are these enough reasons to limit our horizon? Definitely, Not. Certainly, traveling can be truly expensive and extravagant to a lot of people. But that is if the one who plans to travel does not prepare at all. Besides, there are many promo airline fares, and tour packages nowadays that are offered to at least make those hopeful individuals who want to see new places reach one of their dreams.

          So, what to we do to be able to go and see places we thought we could only see on televisions and magazines without spending too much?

          First of all, Plan ahead. Nothing beats a good planning. Everything will fall back to whether or not the hopeful traveler makes a plan.

          Second, check out online on advisories and advertisements for promo airline tickets. This would surely help cut the travel expenses. However, you should make sure that while there are still no promo airline tickets, one must start saving for airline flights.

Third, if you are employed, make sure to ask permission ahead. Your employer’s approval to your travel helps you to leave the country without mush hassle.

Fourth, check on hotel accommodations that are not only clean, safe, and near the tourist destinations but also affordable. This can be checked on different websites and find time to read its reviews. Also, ask some recommendations from those friends who have been to your desired travel destinations.

Fifth, have a realistic food and transport allowance and stick to the budget. Be ready to spend on food as this is a necessity. You wouldn’t want to be traveling in an empty or not satisfied stomach. On the other hand, for transport allowance, this can still be haggled. Just do the haggling respectfully.   

Sixth, if you can just walk, you might as well do it especially if the places you would want to visit are near to one another.

Lastly, if it is your first-time to travel, it would be best if you do it with companions. Your friends or travel buddies would not only be there for fun but they will also serve the purpose of saving since you would be dividing expenses.

These are just some of the recommendations on what to do when you want to travel but on a tight budget. Remember, money should not hinder one from going to places. With the right planning, preparation, and strategy, you would surely enjoy traveling. Also, include in your list of dreams the desire to travel since there are many ideas on how to do it with limited resources.


SUMMER: RIGHT TIME TO TRAVEL?

Think of summer. You will feel the warmth of the

sun. You would want to go to the beach. And you

want to travel.

 

 

You can travel anytime you want but why summer? Because if you think of winter, you cannot think of swimming. You cannot think of going anywhere.

 

Today, travelling became easier and places became more accessible. You can take a one-day trip in summer. It is a season when you can have all the sunshine you can get. It  is the best time for swimming. Either in swimming pools or in the beach. The feel of water in your warm skin can refresh you.

 

As summer is the hottest time of the year, you can treat yourself to cold drinks, shaved ice, air-conditioned rooms, cold baths, and anything that can keep you cool and refreshed.

 

Summer is the best time to visit waterparks, eating ice cream  , enjoying cold fruits, or watching a long awaited movie in a very cold cinema. Keep yourself re-hydrated in warm times like summer to safeguard your health.

 

If you love to socialize, want to meet people and make new friends, vacationing in summer could be an nice time for it. You can be in a crowd, with people who wanted to meet people  just like you. You will enjoy the company of new friends longer for it is in summer when days are longest and the nights are shortest.

 

You can do many things in summer. Summertime is an ideal time to travel for the young as well as for the old. When it is getting warmer, go out for a swim or just travel in a place where the sun is giving off a not-too-hot rays.

 

If you want to visit unique or normal places, you can see them clearly in summer. It would be easier to go places in summer and enjoy everything under the heat of the sun. And a time to see the moon at its best.

 

It may not be always true, but sunshine denotes happiness. When we say Summer, you can always imagine sunshiny days rather than gloomy times. Travels need not be too expensive. In summer, lots of people wanted to travel so it would be nice to book for a tour group. That way, it would cost you less than having to travel alone.

 

Travelling can be made on foot, a two-wheel drive, train, ship, or airplanes. Whatever means you want to get to your destination, think of your safety first.  No matter how adventurous you are, avoid unnecessary risks. Be wary of your surroundings, and make sure you would not be a target of crime or violence. And whatever your reasons for wanting to travel, make the most of your time, make it beneficial for your own well being, and bring back beautiful and unforgettable memories with you back home.

 

Any season of the year may be the right time to travel but one of the best and popular time is in Summer. Plan and save now. Think of Summer.


VACATION

You may call vacation in many ways like travel, adventure, rest, leave, or escapade,  but that makes no difference. When you hear the word, it is still something almost everyone is looking forward to with excitement.

 

  Plan ahead of Time:

  • What to do

Think of what you want to experience in your vacation time. Inquire for a place that is within your budget. And save for it.

 If you can afford it, book early for your transportation and accommodation.

 

Be a Minimalist /Travel Light: To avoid hassle in the airport, or in any port, it is more convenient to just use one carry-on luggage. You wouldn’t like the time wasted just to claim it.

  So it would be wise to bring only the necessary  things for you to survive a few days travel. And if you travel by land,  then you wouldn’t cram your car with your suitcases.

 

About the Place: Do not just try knowing the chosen place you wanted to go. Make sure to know everything, if not all, you need to know about your destination. It is nice to have surprises, but it is also better to know beforehand and be excited to experience what you have read or have known, in reality.

 

  • Where to go

Think of place where you want to experience the things you dreamed of doing. It could be local or abroad.

  If it is your first time traveling alone,  choose a place with no language barriers but if there are, you’ve got plenty of time to learn even a few greetings. And if you are ready for it, then enjoy the place of your choice.

 If you have company, consider their preferences. Meet them halfway.

 

  • When to go

Choose a time wherein it is convenient for you.  If you are employed, choose a time when no co-worker will be inconvenience of your absence. Be considerate.

  It is obvious that most people want to travel on summer days, on weekends, or on holidays. But if you really wanted to spend a quieter vacation with  friends or family, choose a “non tourist season” or an off peak tourist season.

 

  • How to go

Whether you wanted to travel by land, air or water, booking ahead of time may cost you less, or it would just simply be to your advantage.

  Traveling by land means you are to drive yourself to your destination or having friends or families to be your alternate driver. Therefore, check your transportation thoroughly to ensure safety.

  Traveling by air means luggage must be taken into consideration. Are you willing to sacrifice your time claiming your things? If you’re not, then find a way to pack your things in just a backpack or a carry-on suitcase.

  Traveling by water means going to a cruise. Just remember to bring a book or anything that can entertain you in your cabin or on a deck chair when you think you’ve had enough seawater seen for the day.

 

When you are already there:

  • What to do

Check-in directly to your booked hotel or resort.

 

  • When to go

Maybe after you set your things in your room and have rested for a while, you are all set to go.

 

  • Where to go

Visit the spots you already had in mind ( you have plenty of time to think on this before your travel date.) Make an itinerary. That way, you won’t waste your time hesitating where to go first.

 

  • How to go

If you are not with a tour group and traveling alone, walking is a great way to go to nearby places first. When you walk, you can always stop when there is something that catches your interest. You can touch what the locals are usually vending on the sidewalks. You can also easily enter the shops that displays things you think you might like to buy.

  Far fetched places and popular tourist spots that are miles away are best taken with a group with a tour guide. But if you are with friends and families, you can always rent a van or a car.

 

To go for a vacation can sometimes be a luxury or sometimes a real necessity. Whatever reason there is, a vacation is something you have to enjoy or that can make you a better person.

 

With vacation, whenever or wherever you want to go, whatever you want to do, how you want to do it, does not really matter. Only one thing is sure,  experiences and memories created will be made part of the life you are living.
