Memorable Moments in an Alien World











{November 12, 2012}   10 Concepts That Spur Me Towards Going International

Awhile back I met some friends at the Los Angeles Annual Lithuanian Fair.

Being surrounded by a foreign culture – even just for an afternoon – reminded me of my time spent in Europe and caused a pining in me for travel.

Why? I’m glad you asked! I’ve worked up 10 reasons regarding WHY it is GREAT to travel internationally.

1) New Languages

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2) New Food

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3) Unfamiliar Terrain

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) The Allure of the Unknown

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5) Learning Another Culture

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6) Renews Love of History

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7) The Comfort of Discomfort

 

 

 

8) Deepens Gratitude

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

9) Widening the Mind

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

10) Tell Your Story

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Those are my reasons: what are yours?
