Seeking Travel for the Soul
Be cultural to your destinations.
Be open to the locale when traveling by reading their books, brochures, pamphlets, or other media outlets in order to understand where they come from. Soak in as much knowledge as you can because there is so much teaching that the world offers. Go to the bookstore and invest yourself with all those romantic and raw advices from those different cultures because it helps.
See the light of a new day.
The best way to get a feel at a new destination is to have yourself wake up to a whole new side of the sun. You will undoubtedly look at the things in a different perspective. There is just something beautiful about how people go with their everyday lives differently from yours. Forget about being or seeing tourists! It is just great to take in a place with a new dawn.
Cherish the memories you have with that place.
Save those greatest of adventures and memories for your future self as this would be the best way to look back at your life in content. Do journal entries from your travels. Be creative with what you document your moments with, either by using postcard designs, or you could do some collages. Having a blog is even a good thing, as you could post your entries there to show to the rest of the world the beauty of a certain culture. Experience is for everyone and anyone deserves a choice to live it. After all, memories cherished are the best things you could take away from experience!
Live and eat local.
Be one with the locals as this would help you in fully immersing to their traditional culture. You could eat foods that locals find appetizing, you could speak to different natives, and you could even go a step further, by living with the locals. You could get lost in a city, or you could even use the public transport system they have, as long as you immerse yourself in a newfound culture foreign to you, then you are good. It is pretty easy to be a local, you just to have to dive in their culture with a deep understanding and a sense of cultural pride. You just have to be in the right mind set to be one. By doing so, you won’t become repetitive and dull in your life, and you would be more sensitive and understanding to the people around you.
