A rewarding learning experience

Comments : 2 Posted in : Food for Thought on by : Rubina Rahiman Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

 

We have been passionately globetrotting with our endless enthusiasm to learn about new places, culture, try unique things, absorb history, relish new cuisine and meet unforgettable people whom we cherish for the rest of our lives. In this learning journey, we unearthed the inherent similarities among people of different cultures. Despite the diversity of cultures, differences in language, the discrepancy of politics and governments, we are all more alike than different.

Traveling is, indeed a learning opportunity and a rewarding learning experience.

A learning opportunity to discover yourself, a discovery which helps you to become more balanced and endows you a greater appreciation of your own place in the world. When you learn to appreciate what you have, you’ll be able to do more with the things that matter in your life.

Travel experiences, regularly press our horizons and limits, compel us to face our fears and acknowledge the permanence of uncertainty.

Travel encourages us to live in the moment. When you’re somewhere far-off, we seem more conscious of what is around us in that exact point in time; taking in everything unfamiliar – perhaps not having time to dwell on the past, as the new prospects that arise with a strange place seem so much more fascinating.

Cultures, cuisine and methods of respect are sometimes very different from what we’re used to. There’s value in appreciating and respecting those whose living conditions are different from our own.

In the pursuit of mutual understanding and respect, not only we make the world a better place, but it will make each one of us feel better and more connected, too.

Why do you travel and what is your favorite part of traveling?

    I love how end with reflective questions to get your readers to think about their own lives — you are a natural teacher, Rubina!
