Being a traveler doesn’t automatically mean you’re open-minded

Being a traveler doesn’t automatically mean you’re open-minded | The Expat Ramble | Scoop.it

On my first trip abroad as a teenager I quickly came to realize that I wouldn't enjoy travelling. While eating fresh baguettes and finding out the French I spoke in Canada could not be understood in the city of lights, somewhere along the way, I became a tourist. Pointing, ooh-ing and aah-ing, I couldn't get by two weeks without some of my  precious belongings. That's when it hit me: I don't want to travel for travel. I want to live in new places.

 

While many can go through a great process of self-discovery, acquainting with a new culture and people and creation of new habits during a short stay (whatever is afforded to them in the corporate world), I simply can't.

 

I knew I would need to dedicate a part of my life to living in new places to truly take my time to get out of my comfort zone. And I did. City by city by city.

 

So while I whole'heartedly agree with Carlo Alcos' message: being a traveler doesn't mean you're open-minded and not being a traveler doesn't mean you're narrow-minded, I want to emphasize that travel (and by travel I mean the exploration of any "other") can benefit everyone. Different kinds of experience will affect different folks. And it is worth spending the time it takes to discover what it is that will truly impact you.
