Traveling Is A Practice In Patience

I have come to the conclusion that traveling is a practice in patience. Whenever we see someone else's travel pictures or hear their stories what most of them fail to share is how many times things didn't go as planned. Lost luggage, missed/cancelled flights, poor/expensive food options, and hundreds other variable which are not at all in your control no matter how well you research and plan your trip. It is at those times that one needs to conjure up all the patience you can to deal with the situations. And boy, it is not easy. 

Close second to travel, what I believe has improved my level of patience in life is marriage! And when both come together, I feel no less than Hulk, trying to keep her poise. Side note: I honestly can’t imagine how the “full time couple bloggers” do what they do. How they not drive each other mad? As someone who really loves her ‘me time’ and enjoys her own company, I don’t thing I could work, live and travel with the same person every second of my life. Le sigh!

But getting back to what I was trying to say earlier ... Traveling too has been a learning curve, like everything else in life. Traveling is wonderful. It is rejuvenating. It expands and enriches you. But most importantly, it teaches you how to live, which personally had been the most gratifying. Things I have learned about living life through traveling: 

  • how to focus on the positive when nothing is going right
  • how to make the most of whatever hand life deals you
  • how to stay in the present
  • how to not worry about future or the unknown too much
  • how to stay happy no matter what 

What has travel taught you?
