“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.”
The food, customs, religion and people are what make traveling so interesting! And it’s even better if you are uncomfortable because that means that you are learning. Have you ever noticed how sharp your senses become when you are out of your comfort zone? We become very aware of our surroundings when we are unsure of them and this is when we notice all the minutia that would otherwise go overlooked.
So I challenge you to get uncomfortable!! Go somewhere you wouldn’t normally go, even in your own city and just see what you notice. I bet you’ll be surprised!
