When I’m MIA in the blogosphere for few days, it’s usually because we’re hitting the road. Hubby loves traveling to different places – unlike me who could probably stay at home forever as long as there’s internet (LOL!).
Traveling and exploring the world were not my dreams. I grew up in a middle income family and traveling was not one of our priorities. Traveling entails expenses – it’s a luxury our family can’t afford then. My parents would rather spend on clothes, home repairs and improvement, food and other basic needs. And yes, there’s tuition and education costs to worry about when you’re sending four kids to college (and law school).
Thanks God because he gave me a hubby who taught me why traveling is not just a luxury but a beneficial activity.
Traveling is an enriching experience. As long as you try to be observant and open-minded, there’s always something new to learn when you travel. It need not be in other countries – it can be the next block in your neighborhood or a place in a baranggay, district, town, province, county or state that you’ve never been at.
Thru travels, you learn to interact with a lot of people and to cope with various situations. This knowledge boosts your self-confidence and maturity.
You also see people from various walks of life when you go out of your shell. You learn to empatize with those who’re less fortunate and become thankful of the things and blessings that you often disregard. You gain inspiration from those who are doing great and knowing how successful other people has become can also be a humbling experience.
Are you also fond of traveling?
