I have a question…

I said that phrase SO MANY (more like TOO MANY) times when I was living in Chile.


Or, at least, that’s what I told myself because I thought I was getting annoying, but, turns out people didn’t mind answering my questions; and I learned so much by asking all those questions during those 3 months.

Ask all the questions you could possibly ask in a day. It’s the only way you’ll learn and remember anything!

Asking questions will get you so much farther than thinking you know everything ever will!

This post: Una Publicación en Español

Was not just written overnight. It took 3 months of hard work and dedication.


You see, I lived in Chile for 3 months and asked way more than 10 questions per day about the language and culture. And, I did my best to speak Spanish as much as I could, whenever I could. And, one day, a few weeks before I was set to depart, my chilean family told me that my Spanish had improved since they first met me, months ago. And, they told me that I speak well (when I finally have enough courage to say something), which made me happy and proud of myself because it was the moment I realized it was all worth it, and that I definitely wanted to continue learning Spanish. So, I decided to write a short post to show myself how far I came in those 3 months full of questions and doubts (those questions and doubts led to fluency).


At first, I was super afraid of being judge for my accent and my knowledge of the language because whenever I didn’t know something I didn’t feel worthy to speak the language. And, so, for the first few weeks I didn’t say much, I just observed. And, soon after, I decided to start asking people about the things I didn’t know. And, whether or not I got a serious answer, I would inevitably learn something, everyday. So, I did this everyday, for 3 months. And, by the end, I was having conversations in Spanish.


I spoke Spanish.

I heard Spanish.

I saw spanish.

I listened to music in Spanish.

I watched movies in Spanish.

I participated in Spanish conversations.

I lived in a Spanish country; I lived Spanish (Chilean), for 3 months.

Instead of telling myself that I wasn’t worthy of speaking the language or that I would just be made fun of, so I shouldn’t try to learn the language; I told myself to ask at least 1 question per day (that quickly turned into 10). And, before I knew it I was becoming fluent in Spanish.


So, my point in sharing that story was to tell you that, if you ever find yourself in a situation where you feel dumb, and you feel like you’re not worthy of knowing the answer, or you’re scared of not being good enough; just start Asking all the questions and Learn something new everyday!

Thanks for reading! And remember:

You must strive to better yourself everyday because you’ll soon realize that, deep down, you knew the answers all along.

A little goes a long way!

$1 CDN = $500 CLP

. . .

So, 2 months ago I was living in Chile and the last time I went to the bank to get money for some souvenirs, I thought about how much money/souvenirs I wanted.
And, since the bank machines were in Chilean pesos I had to do the math, converting Chilean pesos to Canadian dollars.
And, while looking at the bank machine screen, thinking about how much Canadian $ I wanted to withdraw from my account, I realize that even if I only took $50 that would equal $25,000 pesos, which I know could buy quite a bit of souvenirs.

And, that’s when it hit me.

$1 a day can actually go a long way!
Those campaigns aren’t lying?
Wait, what!?

. . .

And, because of this moment, I thought of those sponsor child companies and how I always thought their $1/day marketing strategies seemed crazy and unreasonable because I always thought: “What could $1 really do? I mean seriously, you can barely buy a chocolate bar with a dollar; What is a child in another country going to do with it?”.

Well, let me just say that after taking this money for some souvenirs, I bought a lot of souvenirs (and I still had money left). And, I, now, know that in another country a dollar can actually buy a lot.

For example: 1 dollar in Chile is worth about 500 pesos And, with 500 pesos in Chile, you can buy a drink and a chocolate bar (and still have some change left).

So, those campaigns that tell you that sponsoring a child for $1/day can make a difference, are actually telling the truth, which took me a second to believe, but they’re right. …What!?

Think about it: If you give someone $1 for an entire months (and they save it); by the end of the month, they’ll have $30, which they can use for extra things (like clothes, school, things they probably couldn’t afford to buy with money from their income because of, well, you know…bills.

. . .

That’s all.
I don’t, in any way, want to guilt you into donating. I’m only sharing this because when I finally realized the worth of $1, I was shook. And, I just wanted to share my realization that those dollar a day sponsor campaigns actually really do make a difference in someone else’s life in another country.
One dollar, for someone in another country would enable them to buy the small daily necessities, and save the money they make (which is probably about $1 a day) for bills, like a house and an education. In some countries, education is not even free (that education could enable them to get a better job)!


 

Thanks for reading!
I’ll leave you with this question that I asked myself when I realized this:
Who knew $1 could actually make such a difference?

 


 

And, if you’re still not convinced (like I was), go to another country (with a certain amount of money for the month) and set yourself a budget. And, try to also notice those around you, and observe the difference between their daily lifestyle and yours.

A lot of people live off of $1 a day, so your donations would help them a lot.
It would literally double their income!

Learning…

day7-tweet5

For the record: I don’t know the person that posted the previous tweet, but I very much agree with it.
Here’s why:

. . .

As a high school and college graduate, I do think education is important to start your life by learning the basics.
But, as a traveler, I know that I still have a lot to learn. And, the more I travel, the more this reveals itself to me more and more every day.

You see, I’ve realized that once you start to travel to different countries in the world, you will truly realize that all those things you learned in school were average knowledge to get you started with your life.

. . .

This is why I started to travel and write in this blog; because I wanted to encourage people to travel and always keep exploring and learning, no matter how smart they think they are. There’s always something out there in the world that you can learn (it’s big enough, you’ll find something).

. . .

Now, I’m not saying that you should quit school and just travel (don’t do that).
What I’m saying is: Don’t think that just because you have the best diploma out there means you know everything.
Think about it this way: “If you can’t speak every language in the world, you still have a lot to learn.” (that’s a little exaggerated, but you get the point).

I hope this post made you think, & inspired you to keep exploring & learning!

Strange, yet Fascinating! 

Wow! That went by quick! 2 weeks to living in Chile-in the books! I can’t believe it’s already, and only, been two weeks. It doesn’t feel like it’s been that long, but yet, it also feels like I’ve done so much.

. . .

This year (2018) has already been a crazy year, all about doing strange & fascinating things (and it’s still only January)

. . .

From: 
Listening to people speak so fast in Spanish.
To:
Living in another country (alone).
Not a thing about this year has been normal (compared to all the past year’s of my life). 

. . .

Seriously, though, listening to people speak another language has become so fascinating to me because they do it with such ease (obviously I know it’s their native language), yet for me to follow along, takes a lot (and I mean an extra amount) of effort. 

And, every time I listen to people speak Spanish, it’s so fascinating to think that that’s how I sound to them when I speak English. 

. . .

And, as if listening wasn’t hard enough, when I think I know what they’re talking about, I’m usually wrong because I missed an important word or part of the conversation. 

. . .

Living here in Chile is like being a kid all over again and needing to start over at 0 & learn how to speak all over again & train my ears to listen to a foreign language as if it’s normal. 

But, I’ve asked myself this question multiple times since living here:

“Exactly, how, do you learn & become fluent in a completely new language as an adult?” 

And, if you came here for answers, I’m sorry but I’m still figuring out the answer myself, but I can say: 

Part of it is because our brain isn’t as fresh as it was when we were babies, so it’s harder for you to soak up and retain things & catch on to the tones in peoples voices.

So, you end up having a slight accent when you speak because that’s what you grew up hearing and that’s what your brain thinks words should sound like. And because you have an accent, you feel subconscious about speaking, in fear of being made fun of. And because of that fear, you just don’t speak, and you never practice, and you never learn.

So, what I’m trying to say is, that if you are trying to learn a new language:

Don’t be afraid to speak it because that’s truly the only way you will even come close to fluency in that language. 

But, let me warn you, it will take a long time. 

But, it will definitely be worth it! 

Thanks for reading! 
Now get out there and go learn a new language & don’t give up on it!

Wander Always… 

I have major wanderlust! I am always homesick for places I’ve never been! I always want to be elsewhere and my wanderlust grows stronger the more I Travel!
Every time I travel, I’ve found that the best way to truly wander is to just get lost and immerse yourself completely in the moment and the culture!
You must get out of your comfort zone and go somewhere completely new & different where no one knows your name->That’s what true traveling and wandering is! 

. . .

If you related to any of those statements above, then you will definitely relate to the following post.

Traveling is a way of life! It’s a life long adventure that never ends! And, the only way to make it even better is to explore the world!

There’s so much to see out there that I can hardly sit still (just thinking about it and writing this post; I need to see it all, it’s all so fascinating & exciting)!

I want traveling to become my life because it’s so exciting to me to just explore new and different countries and their cultures. 

Every time I go on an adventure, it becomes more than a simple trip because I live for new adventures & new experiences!

. . .

Some people say that they dislike traveling and everything that goes with it. I don’t and will never understand this because for me it’s what I live for; Traveling is what keeps me waking up every morning.

Everyone has that one (small or big) thing that gets them out of bed in the morning; whether it’s: family, school, work, the sun, the rain, going for a run, etc. Something that gets you excited for the day ahead.

Well, for me, that reason is: Traveling!

. . .

Here are five reasons why (I think) you should travel to a new country (at least once):

1- Get out of your comfort zone!
Get away from what you know and what you are accustomed to; Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.

2- Learn something new!
True learning can only happen when you leave your comfort zone because there’s so much you don’t know until you travel and explore a different country & culture.

3- See the world and the people in it!
We are all different, but we’re also so similar. The only way to truly understand what that means is to travel because the world seems big now, but once you travel you will realize that it’s even bigger than you thought.  You need to see and experience more than just your little bubble (comfort zone).

4- Become humbled by your experience abroad!
Traveling really does humble you because you realize how little you actually know about anything. And, sometimes, when you can’t speak a language, you get frustrated because you feel dumb, but that’s why we travel: to learn, be humbled and open our eyes to more.

5- Stop surviving and start living!
Life’s not meant for you to just work and pay bills; start Living your life to the fullest. Stop being stressed, scared or anxious, let go of every worry and doubt & take a trip.

Two extra reasons (that I just thought of while writing this post):

1- No one I’ve ever met has said that they regret traveling; so what do you really have to loose (I promise you have more to gain than you will ever loose by traveling)!

2- Traveling makes your life exciting because it gives you more real and interesting stories to tell (you can teach people what you learned while traveling, and encourage them)!

Generations…

“Wow! The next generation is gonna ruin this world that we worked so hard to build for them!”
Says: people born in the 60’s

. . .

The following letter is for people born in the 60s.

Dear elder & wiser human, 

     Please don’t be offended by this; just read through to the end; and try to understand our point of view for once, please & thank you.

I don’t understand why you say that we are going to ruin the world because no one obviously wants to ruin the world; maybe we were just not told how we should actually treat the world.

I mean, let’s be honest, people have told us to respect the world, but those same people are always complaining about how we are gonna ruin it anyways.
So, why are you wasting your time telling us to take care of your world, but then, also complaining about the state of our world?

We just don’t get it! If you’re that worried, take initiative & teach the next generations things you learned to take care of the world, and then you won’t have to complain anymore because you taught the next generation, so you will be more confident in the future of the world with a generations that you taught.

Some of you will say: “but they don’t listen anyways, they just do their own thing.”
To you, I answer: “maybe if you stopped complaining about us, to us, we would listen to you better and actually start taking your advice. But, as long as you keep complaining about us ruining your world, we won’t take you seriously because we don’t think you really care.”

Because, to us, if you cared, you would stop complaining & give us real tips and tricks on how to treat the world because most of us are clueless (some of us realize that the future is important because we were raised with good advice, but others didn’t have older and wiser people in their lives to take advice from), so we need you to teach us things from your past that will actually help us in the future of our world! 

In conclusion, please stop complaining about the next generations (us) and start doing something to better the future of our world!
Because it is OUR world and I promise you that the next generation wants to respect it as much as you, we just (sometimes) don’t know how because we are newer to this world and need to learn from our elder and more experienced humans! 

Sincerely,
The next generation
that cares about the future of our world
just as much as you!

P.S. Thank you for what you’ve done so far in our world. Please teach us things from your past to help us continue to keep the world spinning!

#Blessed…

Lemme guess… You read that title: “Hashtag Blessed”.
That means you have more than you need & you are truly blessed… 

. . .

Think about it, the only reason you know that this symbol # means hashtag is because you probably learned it on the internet (did know know that less than half of the worlds’ population has access to a good internet connection daily).
That means that, you, being able to know that this symbol # means hashtag demonstrates that you ARE already more fortunate than half of the world.
Crazy right! I thought so, hopefully you do too.

 

Blessed_Quotes4

. . .

So, next time you use a # or say the word hashtag, remember that you are more fortunate than more than half of the world.

. . .

That’s also why I think everyone should travel to a new/different country; to see first hand that more than half the world does not live like them.
And, also just because traveling is awesome! & you can learn A LOT!

Be The Dumbest…

Humility: “A modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness”.
V.S.
Validation: “Recognition or affirmation that a person or their feelings or opinions are valid or worthwhile”.
V.S.
Ego: “A person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance”.

. . .

These three states of mind can all work together to better your mindset and help you learn to always be the Dumbest! 

. . .

Being validated is a great feeling and it usually always boosts our ego, but those who stay humble are succeeding at Being the Dumbest!

. . .

Why would I ant to be the dumbest; you ask?

Well, let me explain…

…I just finished reading this book: “How to be a Bawse”  by Lilly Singh (if you know it, we can be friends. If not, that’s okay, But you should get it and read it, it’s an amazing book).

Anyways, I just finished this book and one of chapter titles was “Be the dumbest”.
Now, just like you probably thought, I was also very confused by this title, so before reading the chapter I decided to try and guess what I thought the chapter would be about; and here’s what I came up with:

“I thought this book was about being successful and staying positive in life. Why would I want to be the dumbest; isn’t that counter productive? Shouldn’t I try to be the smartest (or at least; not dumb)?”

I then proceeded to read the chapter and it made total sense (and I just had to share it).

Being the dumbest doesn’t mean you’re stupid, it just means you don’t know everything.

You only know what you need to know to do YOUR job correctly.
If you have a question about something that is outside of your area of expertise, you shouldn’t be afraid to ask questions. Asking questions is the only way to get smarter.

I encourage you to try and ask at least 1 question a day & see what happens. However, don’t ask smart question though; ask questions that make you seem dumb, so you can learn more (the dumber the question, the more you will learn from the answer).

P.S. Learning should not stop after you graduate because even then all you know is what you learned in school, so you really ARE the dumbest. And, when you get a job all you know is how to do that specific job.
The only way to keep learning everyday is to not be afraid to ask (sometimes) stupid questions. 

So next time you are at a meeting or hanging with friends try and be the dumbest person in the room (being the dumbest is better than pretending you know everything)

Speechless…

After a trip/adventure, most people are speechless & can’t stop talking!

Let me be the first (probably not first, but you know what I mean) to say: If that ^ happens to you after a trip/adventure, it is a good thing; it means your experience has taught you a lot!

. . .

20170713_195926[287]

You see.. I saw this picture a few days ago and immediately thought about writing something, because it’s so true (the pictures speaks a thousands words).

 . . .

You see.. I LOVE to travel and every time I travel I am in AWE of where I am. It never sinks-in until a few days or even weeks into the trip and sometimes it doesn’t sink-in until I get back home.. and, then, at home, people are constantly asking me about my trip.
And, to be honest, sometimes I can’t answer all their questions because I don’t even know how to describe my trip in words; I try, but I become speechless after saying a few words..  and, then, a few days or weeks after I’ve had time to process my experiences, I start to realize everything that has changed and begin to know how to tell people about my trip.

. . .

I think that occurs because during and after the trip, I am still in awe and thinking about the things I learned and I’m not ready to tell anyone or try to explain anything yet.
But, when it finally sinks-in and I fully understand what I learned on my trip, I begin to get excited to tell people and the words just come to me because I am so excited that no matter what I say, people will listen because they know how much the trip meant to me. And, maybe my excitement will encourage them to go to this place.

. . .

Traveling does, in fact, make you speechless!
Why?

Because…

When we travel and come home, home is still the same, but something in our minds has changed, and that changes everything!

…We don’t know how to react with our new perspective. We are trying to live with our new found perspective on life! (that’s the secret of traveling)

So, next time you are speechless after a trip & people are asking all sorts of questions, just tell them about the most exciting parts of your trip because that’s the part they want to hear anyways… the personal experiences are for your learning & perspective anyway (you can tell them if you want, but they will learn in their own way, during their own trip).

Thanks for taking the time to read this post! Happy travels! 🙂

Age…

In society, since the beginning  (since, like, forever), age has played a HUGE role in establishing societal rules.
But, Why?

. . .

Think about it: since forever: people have been slaves to their age. Waiting to be a certain age to: be king, drink, drive, get their first job, etc…
And, I think that the worst part is that:
1-the age to do certain things has changed drastically throughout the years
AND
2-it changes from place to place (even within the same country).

. . .

I know some people say that the answer is: Maturity. But is that really THE answer.
So many other factors can influence the “legal” age of a place.
(Maturity is and should be a huge defining factor, but should it really be the only thing people think about when you tell them your age).

For example; If someone is 16-17 and has their first job, why should people treat them differently than someone who is 35 and has their first job?
Think about it: They are both being trained to do the same things for the first time in their life, so, Why should age matter?

And, after that, we have to look at education of a country.
For example; If the 16-17 year old in that scenario is still in school, but the 35 year old dropped out and never went back; Does this change the answer to the previous question?

And, lastly, we have to look at general background (criminal, family, culture…).
For example; If the 16-17 year old is an A+ (honor) student with a lot of volunteer experience, but the 35 year old dropout has a not so good record; Does this change the answer to the previous questions?

. . .

All this just to tell you that; Next time you are talking to someone and you are surprised by their age (young or old); Ask them general questions about their education, culture, life goals, motivation, etc…

Remember: Education, Culture, Life goals and Motivation 
can tell you A LOT more about a person than their age!

Half-A-Billion Women Can’t Read This : P.S.A.

Dear You (yea, you reading this),

     130 million girls are out of school right now. If they were a country, they would make up the world’s 10th largest – bigger than Japan or Germany.
That’s an obscene amount of untapped potential.
These girls deserve the same chance to get an education as all of us.

I just signed ONE’s letter that urges our leaders to help millions more girls get into school.
Will you sign it, too?

The letter is going to be hand-delivered on March 8th – International Women’s Day – to leaders all around the world, so we need to get as many signatures as possible to make sure we’re heard loud and clear.
You can sign the letter here: www.one.org/letter
-Your signature, just by clicking the link, can change many lives drastically!

-If you want to make an even bigger impact, click this link: https://shop.metowe.com/girllove to buy a #GirlLove rafiki bracelet. It supports the same cause & sends girls in Kenya to school! All you have to do is spend $15 to send a girl to school for a whole year!

We all deserve a chance for education because EDUCATION MATTERS!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Thank You! 🙂

What now?

. . .

Can my dream change?

. . .

Here I am; graduated from high school and college; with a diploma, a degree and a good paying job, but I still feel like something’s missing.
Actually, I know exactly what’s missing, but shouldn’t I still feel a sense of accomplishment?
Is this really what I’m supposed to do the rest of my life?
Of course, I know, the answer to those questions is: NO; but, how do I change it?

. . .

The answer is easy to say, but not as easy to actually accomplish;
Just Change Your Dream! (is this really possible or even acceptable?)

. . .

People say that in order to feel a true sense of accomplishment, you must follow your dreams because achieving your dreams is the only things that will make you feel accomplished!

But, what is my dream? Shouldn’t my dream be in line with my college degree? Can my dream change? Why did I go to college if it’s just to change dreams? Was college a waste of time? Is it possible or even acceptable to change my dream?

. . .

Well, if you came here for answers, I can’t answer any of those questions because I’m still figuring it out myself.
But, I can tell you that whatever you have already completed to chase your dream will help you in some way in the future.
Even if you have 0, 1 or even 3 degrees, you will achieve your “real” goal and dream one-day; just have patience & keep working hard. (also, if you have 3 degrees you are definitively on the right track to find a great dream.)
I can also tell you that; Yes, dreams CAN and WILL change because the more you know and learn, the more things you will want to learn about and the more you will change your dream to try new and different things.
Learning will help you find that Ultimate dream that will give you pure happiness!

. . .

Anyways, I hope this wasn’t too confusing & that it helped you in some way!
I’m off to go find my dream(s)!

Remember to always; Keep learning, dreaming & living life to the fullest each and every day!

Curiosity…

curious

. . .

Some people say: “Being curious is what kills you”.
Well, to those people, I answer back saying: “Those who are not curious have not lived”.

. . .

I mean, just think about it for a minute!

-Curiosity is probably the reason you tried all those new & scary things;
It’s probably even the reason why you are, where you are today.

-If you were never curious, you would never have:

  • moved out of home?
  • skydived?
  • got the job you work today?
  • tried new food?
  • traveled somewhere new?
  • & so much more…

I think that those who are not curious don’t enjoy life as much because let’s be honest curiosity is the only reason you stepped out of the box to do all those new, scary & exciting things.
Curiosity has gotten you to where you are today! So, don’t be afraid of the unknown, instead be curious!

Thanks for reading & Remember:

When life becomes too monotonous, let your curiosity guide you!

ALSO

Curiosity makes you smarter! 😉

*Embrace your curiosity!*

Why I love traveling? / Belize Trip-Part 2!

I still can’t ‘Belize’ I was in this country! (sorry for the bad pun, but I had to do it)

. . .

I had such a great experience in Belize that it’s really difficult to put into words and explain it to people (especially those who have never traveled before).

. . .

However, I can say that; My favorites types of trips are: when I go to a new country and come back, I feel different and I feel like I really accomplished something during the trip.
I feel like whenever you feel changed; during & after a trip; is when you know it was worth it. That’s the biggest reward for travel & the biggest reason why I love to travel!

Traveling is an adventure that changes your perspective & gives you a whole new view on the world! Every time we travel; we learn, see or do something new; something that we wouldn’t have or see or even notice in our own backyard…
We need to travel & step outside our comfort zone in order to experience new and different things to feel changes.

For me, travel always makes me content; it always gives me an amazing & fulfilling adventure & experience that leaves me speechless!
Comment down below if you feel the same way about traveling or comment saying one things that always cheers you up!

 

Thanks for reading!
And commenting (if you did)!

I mean: I woke up this morning (April 19), very sleepy, with the flu.. Yet, I still got up and got on the airplane (7 hours) , a 4 hour bus ride and a 1 hour & 30 minute boat ride…
After 12 hours & 30 minutes of traveling, I made it to Glover’s Reef; where I had a tour of the island (Middle Caye) & had an amazing Belizean supper.
The trip so far as been amazing and all I can do now is go to sleep and wait for another amazing day tomorrow… Good Night!

*The next day I wrote something (which happens to be the last day at Glover’s Reef)*

What? Where did the past 6 days go? 😊  Tomorrow is our last day at Glover’s Reef and then we head to the town of Dangriga, to the Belize zoo… I’m excited to see the zoo, but I don’t want to leave this island… I’ve been having such a great time in Belize (even with all the sunburns and bugbites. Excited to see what the next leg brings!

Belize is an AMAZING country that doesn’t get enough credit!

Thanks for reading Part 1 of my Belize trip!
P.S. The map shows where we stayed for the first 6 days.
*More Belize posts to come soon! (I just got back yesterday & I wanted to post something)*

See the world!

Alright, so, before I start, I just want to say that I am no expert in travel. I have only seen few places in the world and I plan on going on many more trips, but I wanted to share one very important things I’ve learned so far on my trips. (comment if you have any tips on things you learned about traveling).

Throughout my travels, I’ve realized that the more places I visit, the more places I add to my list of places I want to visit. (the list just keeps getting longer). My thirst for adventure, visiting different cultures and seeing the world will never go away. I just want to see the whole world (every country and every little town in every city).

In my opinion, travel is something (the only thing) that really matters. Every time I have a bad day I remind myself that one day I will be able to see the whole world. I have never liked being in the same place for a long period of time, even my home. Don’t get me wrong, I love being home, but I always feel like I have to be somewhere else, seeing something new, learning new things (the list goes on). I get tired of being in the same place for too long (I want to adventure without a schedule and just see where I end up).

Warning: The next sentence was found on Pinterest, but I agreed with it so much I had to incorporate it in this blog post.

Seeing the world is the only thing that you can buy that makes you richer.   (I know people say you can have adventures in your own backyard, but nothing beats having an adventure across the world).

Seeing the world is the best education you can get. Nothing can or will beat immersing yourself in a completely different culture.

For example, when you’re sitting in a classroom in your home country where you feel comfortable, you can’t see, smell or hear the different cultures, compared to; when you’re sitting in a classroom in a completely different country where you don’t know the rules or even fully understand the language. Which scenario do you think you are really going to learn something important? Comment below saying which one you would choose. (I would choose the second one).

So, to sum everything up, I just want to say: See the World! (get out of your comfort zone, even if it’s just in the next city, just see something other than your own “bubble” because everyone does things differently and the only way to accept it, is to immerse yourself in the culture and really try to understand it).

Thanks for reading, Hope you enjoyed hearing my random thoughts, See you in my next post!

REMEMBER: GET OUT THERE AND SEE THE WORLD!!! 🙂
