The New Year is finally here and it is time to ‘Pack-ur-Bags’ and take new journeys!! Here are few travel resolutions to prepare you for 2014 travel..
1. TAKE A TRIP WITH YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY
No joy can ever equate that of traveling with your entire family. It improves and rejuvenates relationships, spreads happiness and makes unforgettable memories you can fall back to, during those times when you are not with them..
So, don’t wait!! Just call all your family members, cousins, uncles, aunts, and take that trip..Believe me..you will cherish it for a lifetime..
2. LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE
A language not only connects you with a person, but also helps you to make a new friend. Go ahead and try doing that on a foreign land, and just witness the warmth you get from the natives..
Every language is more than just a way of communication and has a treasure of surprises you will be able to unfold as you try learning one..
3. TRAVEL TO SEE YOUR CLOSE FRIEND
Time waits for none and as it flies by, distance breaks the touch. Try traveling to your childhood friend for a change and see what he or she is up to..While mobile, internet and all other gadgets have connected people distant enough, but sometimes, we fail to talk to those who were close to us…
4. TRAVEL TO YOUR BIRTH PLACE
Your birth place defines your identity..And as you grow, it grows too..Sometimes, its great to unfold the past memories by traveling to the place where you opened your eyes and saw the world for the first time..
Who knows, you might end up finding what you have been looking for by traveling to the ‘Starting Point’…
5. TRAVEL TO YOUR FIRST SCHOOL
Great way to relive your old memories..The podium where you took your first steps, the class where you held the pencil for the first time and the people who made you who you are today..One worthy thanks to them can change their lives forever.. so also yours!!
6. TRY A FOREIGN CUISINE YOU HAVE NEVER ‘DARED’ TO TRY
Every culture has a different taste..but this is what makes it even more better..This year, try that cuisine you have never thought of trying before..Engage your taste buds to have a relishing experience..sometimes, the things we do not try are the ones that become our favorite after we dare to try them!!!
7. PRESERVE TRAVEL SITES
The travel sites in any country are a cultural heritage. They are things that make a country proud. Make sure you do not spoil them in any way by causing pollution, littering and damage to property.
It only leaves a poor impression about the visitor when he travels to a foreign land and also about the host who doesn’t know how to preserve his own heritage.. In the end, your respect lies unto your own hands..
8. RESPECT SANCTITY OF SANCTUARIES AND WILD-LIFE PARKS
We are losing on so many valuable species on earth..just because of the one species called humans.. They all were gifted to us with this nature and they exist for a reason…They never tried to make us extinct..I guess we should reciprocate the same way.
Our future generations may only end up seeing the tigers and lions in pictures and images on computers..lest we resolve to protect them with all our might..
9. make one new friend abroad
Whats the point if you travel to a new place and you do not leave a reason behind to invite someone to your place..or may be going there again..Try this once..this time, make a new friend abroad..Ask their names, share contact nos, click a picture, and become friends..
It is at least better than having ones who are virtually available on the internet..Try making a real friend for a change..
10. CAPTURE MORE TRAVEL MEMORIES
And lastly, don’t forget to click more pictures..Expand your album, make it bigger, and broader than before..Take that camera along and shoot from myriad angles..make sure you capture every smile, lock every moment, and hold every emotion so that you can cherish them when you are back home….
