A french proverb says “Les voyages forment la jeunesse” which means “Travel broadens the mind”. It’s so true!
In my case you can also say I became a travel addict (I would love travelling all year long if only my bank account, my studies would permit it) >:D
So many things changed since my first travel (first real travel overseas with my class in USA). I must confess I kinda arrange my life around my passion. And for the moment it’s not quiet yet what I want but I will keep that for later, when my devil plan will be in action ! (As you can see I put a long tiime to write this article because this week has been kinda epiq with work)
Back to my subject, I will write 5 things that travel has taught me (only 5 things because I had to make a choice but in fact there is more than this ^^):
- I learn how to appreciate more my own country
You are walking around a beautiful place, your feet hurt and wish you could take a vélib to go home, or even if you like talking about everything (
and everyone come on we all do that secretly) in your langague you also miss being understand by everyone 🙂
It’s the little things of the daily life that make me love France even more ^^ Like a nice breakfast one a balcony.
2. I am more adventurous than ever
Especially with people and food. I use to stay in my confort zone, and now I don’t want to go back there !
As you can see on the photo, I tried my best to pick something I would have never did in France and it was delicious !
3. How to keep my bank account for the good time
I used to spend my pocket money in whatever I saw (mostly in chocolate my waist would tell you). Now I am proud to keep it for my future travel. Thanks to it I will go to Spain in august and maybe in Japan in september (if I’m lucky or if I win the loto)
4. To appreciate the little things in life
If I can be happy while looking a old couple in love overseas, a nice park, cute foreign cat ; I should be able to do the same in France. Without being creepy of course ^^
Everyday (even or especially the bad ones) I am asking myself what is my highlight of the day, and like magic it brightens my day ! This is how I confort myself without ice cream 🙂
5. The people I met <3
It wouldn’t have been the same without the persons I met.They made me discover their city, life, country like no book could have ^^
What about you ?
