Have you ever thought about the difference between travel and vacation? These two things seem very similar, but I think it's a big difference. I think that when someone really travels, they are experiencing a new culture, not just a week at the resort. When I say to experience a new culture, I mean to really experience the website, the sound, the taste of people, and everything that makes culture a reality. I think this is the true essence of travel. If you just go somewhere for a week and have been hanging out in the hotel, how many cultures one can honestly experience. It always makes me sad when I hear people talking about the awesome vacation they take or their plans to take. It's not that I won't go on vacation, it's not the same as traveling. Don't misunderstand me now. I will never refuse a free holiday, but I would rather let someone pay for my trip. I think vacation time is more suitable for relaxing and trying to charge the battery, as travel can cause physical exhaustion and exhaustion. Let's look at some things that make travel different, and then we take a vacation.
For me, travel can be an exciting experience, but it can also be exhausting both mentally and physically. I think the most important thing is that making travel so unique and amazing is that you will experience a completely different culture. I mean, what more exciting experience of new culture? I especially like the newcomers you meet on the road. In most foreign countries, the locals will spare no effort to love a completely stranger. Of course not every culture is like this. In fact, you may be overlooked in some places. Another thing I really like to visit the new culture is food. Of course I am a complete food fan, so you may not like foreign food as much as I do. Although some people are disgusted by wanting to eat something they can't even recognize, I absolutely like the idea of immersing food in culture. I mean, think about the fact that there really is no apple pie in the United States? Absolutely not! Just as the United States does not have the United States without Apple, if there is no Naan, India will not be India. So next time you go on a trip, try some local food. Therefore, in addition to unique people and unique food, there are other things that are perfect for travel and vacation.
Some people use their travel time as a soul search time, and if you want to do something travel is definitely a good way. As we all know, people spend two years in the world to better understand themselves, and these people often know what they want to do, or at least have better ideas. In addition, when you live in a backpack or suitcase, you will find what you think is really important in life. Nothing makes you realize that the beauty of sunset is like no TV. Take it away from you
Another thing you can do when traveling abroad is to get you into a culture and make yourself feel good. This is volunteer service. There are many organizations that allow you to pay foreign volunteers, and it is often a ridiculous expense. So my advice to you is that if you want to volunteer somewhere, and you have reached your destination, ask around. In foreign countries, especially in developing countries, there are many different organizations that are willing to make you a volunteer, and they won't even let you pay.
So, now we have seen some things that make real travel so exciting, and how to make yourself truly integrated into culture let us see how holidays and travel are different.
To show how vacations and travel are different, I will use examples of Mexican vacations and Mexican trips. First of all, if someone is going to Mexico for a holiday, they may go to the tourist resort of Cancun. Not that I slammed Cancun, I just said it might. So this has put you in a bad position to understand a culture, because you may live in a resort tailored to your needs. If you are traveling, you may choose a place that is not suitable for travel, and you may be staying at a certain budget accommodation. As long as you live in a dormitory, you can contact the real place, not just to lie to you. At the resort, they often tailor American food to American customers. This completely undermines the concept of experiencing a new culture through food. On the other hand, if you live in the non-tourist part of the country, you can experience some real local cuisine and even go to a real Mexican restaurant. In addition, if you live in a resort, you will only experience the holiday life, and when you leave you, you will not even have any thoughts on the life of the locals. Other than that, you don't know anything about the new culture. I have to say that learning new culture is one of the main reasons I like to travel. So there are some similarities in vacations and travel, but they are two completely different ways of experiencing culture. In fact, when you are on vacation, you really can't experience the true culture. Then would you rather go on holiday or travel?
