Traveling gives us the opportunity to explore the world and meet new people. It encourages and inspires us to see the beauty in everything and everyone around us, and most importantly, it helps us grow in knowledge, values, and experiences.
Here are 12 life lessons that traveling has taught me.
There’s so much world to explore, but unfortunately, being a keen traveler means you inevitably have to take a lot of long-haul flights. I’ve had my fair share of this horror. My first long-haul, flying from the Philippines to Israel, it took us a total of 14 hours with 3 hours layover. Restless sleep, dry awful skin, aching body … and the best part? Jet-lag waiting to be served up fast and cold when you land. Bottomline: Long-haul flights are exhausting and a brutal test of endurance – more so when you’re flying economy!
Our traveler of the month is a good friend of mine and also the person who taught me how to improve my website. Her name is Trixie Ricablanca-Angeles. She is a nurse by profession, a volunteer to non-profit organization, a traveler and a bookworm.
Our traveler of the month is Mr. Leo Kevin Mendiola. I met him in an event last 2015 but I’ve been following his adventures via Instagram way before that. He’s traveler, a marathoner and an IT Project Manager by profession.
