3 Principles You Should Never Forget When Traveling

3 Principles You Should Never Forget When Traveling

When you are traveling, there are some unwritten laws that I believe should be followed.  They are more moralistic than real laws, but still nevertheless I feel that they are relevant to all travelers.

  1. Manners
  2. It’s all about the experience
  3. How fortunate you are

These may seem like a somewhat different list, but it is what I feel works.  People should never forget their manners when traveling.  Manners does not just mean you dinner side table manners that your parents drilled into your head as a kid.  I am additionally referring to how you respect others differences and cultural practices.  Never forget that traveling is about the experience.  Bring in themes like, live and let live.  When you travel look for win-wins and build community.  There is no point in the experience not being enjoyable for everyone.  Lastly, never forget how fortunate you are to be able to travel.  Traveling is a privilege, not a right.  If you get the chance to travel, realize that not everyone has the opportunities that you do.
