It may have different meaning depending how an individual would understand it. To me travelling is going somewhere, be it familiar or new. It doesn’t matter if it’s the place next your hometown, a mall nearby, a country, or even a place on the other side of the world, as long as you get out of your comfort zone, for me, that is travel. In order to travel, one must have a reason of why you would go to a place and leave your comfort zone. It may be because you would like to know about that place,
Coming from a low income family, living in a small town in India, I learned early on about struggling and surviving those struggles. I watched my parents working day and night to provide for electricity, pay for our monthly school fees so my sister and I can have a better education, and for the future they wished upon for their children. To further enhance this vision, my father decided for the family and I to immigrate to the US. Everything was different in the sense that I changed schools, learned a new language, had to make new friends, and learned the different culture. I had to adapt to a whole new world, which was a little difficult at 6 years old However, when I look back now, I just couldn’t believe how far my family and I had come which I have my father to thank for.
Most of all I am thankful for my mother. She did not have to immigrate to the United States for me, which makes me appreciate that my future success would be because of her. I must say my experience being in a third world country was not just a vacation but it was a life changing stage that had turned me into a humble, generous, and thankful individual today. Do not get me wrong the first time I found out, I was going to a place like this I thought was God punishing me terribly. Given that, I had to get used to their living conditions, food and seeing what they do just to survive each day has taught me more than my characteristics of the person I am now.
It's always amazing meeting with dedicated people, so full of heart, working towards a common goal. 7. I have awesome friends in 2 different countries having the time of their lives. Wonderful people who never fails to remember me especially when they travel. One is in Norway the other one is in New Zealand.
I love travelling, and I think I get that from my mom. She loves going to new places as you already know because she tells me that you used to take her to new cities whenever you went somewhere. Since I was a child, I have been travelling quite a lot. I love going to new places, each place has its own story to tell, a history and the
I’ll be completely honest, to say I was devastated when I found out Timor wasn’t in a good place financially was an understatement. Thankfully, my opinion of this country changed over time and I grew to love this place in the short time I got to be here. From stopping the bus in the middle of the road to use the bathroom to climbing Cristo Rei in only Crocs©, the experience was unforgettable. I was very fortunate to learn about the problems a new country can face and got to see it firsthand. I was also lucky enough to be able to visit this country, something that I may never do again.
My relatives often say, "Only go to America can make you happy, only go to America can give you good conditions to grow." In other words, if not the United States, then I cannot exist? Back to myself, I was born and grew up in an unhappy family. So maybe my definition of happiness is simpler than my family. I'm introverted.
I feel in love with the people there, the nice resorts I stayed at, and the different food I had. However, a part of me missed home. I missed my dad, my friends and my bed. Once I was finally back home in Minnesota, I sat and reflected on my trip. Something that came across my mind was the fact that several people here in the United States think that Africa in general is poor and people in Africa love in “huts” and eat “mud cakes” because they don’t have food.
