Things You Should Know About Travelling
Travelling is one of the best and most adventurous things you can do in life. It will allow you to broaden your sense of the world and prospect of seeing things differently. In fact, travelling could be the best investment in exchange for happiness, self-meditation, relaxation, and soul purpose.
However, it is not easy at the same time, because you get to meet new people, visit new places, and learn new things. So, there’s plenty of things you should know that no one will tell you about travelling.
1. Sometimes the fastest route is a bad option
You choose a place; you find the direction by looking into the map and look for the fastest route or transportation to get there. Why would you choose to visit places in a hurry? If you’re here for enjoyment for a worldly-timeout, then do not go for fastest routes, sometimes the best choice is to choose a path that teaches you something at every stop. What could be best than going by train or a local bus (countryside coaches)? Getting they immediately may kill the deep-travelling thoughts you could have while staring outside the transport.
2. Waiting is not as bad as it is to some
Of course, you’ll have delays in your flights; you’re going to have to wait hours for a bus, who knows? Maybe it all can be avoided, but certainly, there’s room. However, some travellers hate to wait for anything and it’s natural, but when you are on a journey to learn new things and find your inner peace, I’d recommend waiting over irritation. The reason being, when I was in Edgware, UK I had to wait for the bus for more than reasonable and during that time I spoke to the people stand around and I got along fine, in fact, I made friends that still are in contact.
3. Do not Hesitate to Change food
The diet will change, you may not have the same things you used to have back at home or in your country. But hey, isn’t it great to try new traditional dishes? It is, and you oughta try one at least once a day. But that doesn’t mean you go for unhygienic food or food bad reviews – adapting culture is one thing, but looking after your health is more important.
4. Eradicate the Language Barrier
Language is one the most important thing you should while travelling. Just because English is a universal language, doesn’t mean everyone speaks it around the world, but people do understand a bit rather than responding in the same language. The best way is to learn their language, won’t that be learning for you? It indeed was for me when I learned German during my visit to Rothenburg ob der Tauber, and I still speak German moderately.
5. Not everyone you see will be good
Every country is filled with some bad and majority of good people. There will come a time when you’ll bump into some annoying-creepy people who wouldn’t like you a bit, that’s okay you’re not here to impress them anyway. Regardless of what people say or react to you, stay calm, be brave, and have some strength to walk away by ignoring them. This could be your achievement, trust me. Everyone’s so aggressive these days that we have forgotten the meaning of patience – sometimes the best answer is silence
