How to educate yourself while travellingAn old Chinese saying...you learn more by walking a mile than by reading thousand pages of a book.
I think traveling in itself is educational. The moment you step out of your comfort and known zone, your education begins. You learn about people, places, geography, culture, food, habits and a zillion other things by talking to new set of people and experiences new things and places.
The most important thing in this is to have a mindset to learn by being open minded. If you set out thinking you know all, then you that's all you will ever learn.
I can state a personal change in me, that since I and my wife have started traveling, there is a marked difference in my personality in terms of increased confidence, ability to take risks and manage them well, improved general known how of things and better communication skills. I have been told this by my friends, work colleagues and supervisors. From my perspective, my travels have been highly educational.
Enjoy traveling !!
Every time I have travelled, I have learned something. Completely unintentially - but I cannot actually work out how you do ANYTHING without learning something. Some of the experiences I have had have been very positive - others not so and I have tried to pass all of these on through my articles and blog. But I do learn something every day, travelling or not. It just happens.
