I think it takes a lot of courage to travel in other countries, especially the most adventurous such as India, Nepal, Indonesia, Mexico and so on. It’s kind of like my mother always use to say to me: “Be Brave”. I have applied that to all areas of traveling, even though I never considered myself THAT brave. More than that there was something that led me to being brave and that was by not being afraid. Something I have been very good at from early on.
I know some people have a lot of problems with it, being worried and afraid about everything possible. But I believe, as an experienced traveller, that this is one of the most important things that you need to practice on in order to be able to get the most out of travel.
The good news is, that this is not as difficult as many think. For many, all it takes is to jump on the other side of the fence. As a lot of the experience and growth to becoming a true traveler, is automatic. So I encourage my readers..
Please, don’t be afraid. Simply buy a ticket to somewhere. To a place you have never been to. And see what happens!
And this was one of the most golden of advices I could ever give,
