To learn a language or not to learn a language? It’s one of the questions most debated by travelers, particularly those preparing for a long-term trip, before they set off on the experience of a lifetime.
First off, I’d like to state that I LOVE ROAD TRIPS! Road tripping a destination, especially an international place is one of the most exciting, intimate, and interesting things you can do, I think. You can come and go as you please, and you can go with the flow, staying in a place because you met some really great locals, or you can move along if something doesn’t quite feel right. I particularly love road tripping around whole countries, because of several reasons, really – it gives me the freedom to stop wherever I want, whenever I want, as I mentioned already, but as a photographer, that’s an invaluable freedom that I like to take advantage of as much as possible – the other reasons are that I really love to get lost, and if I’m always hopping from bus to taxi to train, I will almost always miss a neat village, or a beautiful landscape feature.
As of late, I have begun researching and planning out my itinerary for my upcoming USA Road Trip. The trip will start during the first week of March, where I will start from my hometown of Columbus, Ohio – from there I will head south through Bourbon country to Nashville to visit a few friends again, before I travel east through the Old Smokey Mountains to the Atlantic coast. Afterwards, south I go, through Georgia and Florida, all of the way down to the Florida Keys, before heading north where I’ll follow along the Gulf of Mexico. It will likely take me a few weeks to comfortably make my way to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, but spring should be in full swing by the end of March, and the weather should be nothing short of pure splendor. Then, as I continue west through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California, summer will be beginning to kick off its festivities.
1. So you want to travel?
Well, that’s a great decision... Travel is one of the most life changing and amazing experiences a person can have. Humans are meant to explore, and to learn and grow, for without travel, bad habits, judgements and things like racism never evolve and close-mindedness is never truly cured.
Have you fantasized about seeing the wonders of Europe? Is the idea of traveling overseas titillating? Of course it is, but it costs far too much in the current economic climate to actually take such a trip, right? Wrong! The time has never been riper for taking the chance to see the wonders of Europe on the cheap. There are simple ways to finance a trip to Europe that won’t break the bank.
If you’re in the process of planning a holiday, the concept of engaging a travel agent to help you book your trip may, on the surface, seem somewhat passé. While traditional travel agents are a dying breed, the epoch of the travel advisor, however, may only just be beginning.
