How Travel Improves Your Life – Lessons from Different Countries Around the World

how travel improves your life

Travel improves your life in many ways. Some of the benefits of travelling the world are that you become more adaptable and learn to deal with unexpected obstacles; becoming less judgemental; the most important of all – you gain independence and confidence. But countries also teach us a lot if we have open eyes and hearts for their lessons. These are some of the countries that helped me improve my life in many different areas. I’m sure you have your own examples. Feel free to share them in the comments. 

 

1 – FRANCE

 

France taught me how to eat healthily and what it means classic elegance.

4 – ETHIOPIA

 

Ethiopia showed me survival is possible even in the poorest country in the world and beauty has no colour.

Morocco revealed to me the mystique of nature – the Sahara desert.

Cuba demonstrated that one can be proud and still enjoy life even very poor.

8 – GERMANY

 

Germany surprised me with their style and variety, which I did not expect in a society known for its strict order and discipline.

 

9 – AUSTRIA

 

In Austria, I saw that perfect order can be very beautiful, but also boring.

10 – CROATIA

 

In Croatia I’ve learned that people’s perceptions can be very different – some love rock hills overhanging the sea, others like large, open, flat spaces.

11 – MONTENEGRO

 

Montenegro convinced me that beauty is often in the small and simple. The Bay of Kotor is insanely beautiful and so devoid of people’s intervention.

12 – SOUTH AFRICA

 

In South Africa, during my stay in a safari lodge in Kruger Park, I physically felt that simplicity of life is the true nature of Happiness. It is one thing to ‘know it’. But it is totally different to experience it. Spending hours among the African animals has changed my life in an unexpected but fruitful way. It made me a happier person.

14 – SPAIN

 

In Spain, I have learned that not everything known as “awesome” is such. I did not like the Paella!

 

15 – Egypt

 

In Egypt, I saw that the civilization that built the pyramids had nothing to do with the contemporary Egyptian society. Sometimes a country’s history and present have nothing in common.

16 – The NETHERLANDS

 

In Amsterdam, my conservative understanding of parenting crashed to pieces.

18 – ROMANIA

 

In the northern part of Romania, where ethnic Hungarians live, I found that game meat goes best with a berries’ sauce.

 

19 – GREECE

 

In Greece, I realized that one of the most beautiful countries in the world can have some of the most impolite inhabitants.

 

20 – TURKEY

 

In Turkey, I learned that it is very easy to succumb to the pleasures – I do not believe even a fashion model on a strict diet to resist these syrupy desserts and highly sweetened Turkish coffee served in oriental luxury!
