When you travel to new places, or even decide to revisit a spot you’ve already checked out numerous times, you are bound to get some ‘you’ time because traveling gives us breathing space that is quite often lost in our usual day to day existence. Having a moment to take advantage of peace and quiet, and to simply just ‘be’ allows us to let go of stress and tension, and finally get to enjoy being in the moment, which is the key focus of meditation, and very much a practice that you can take home with you. It’s also nice if you are traveling with a partner because you will have a chance to spend time with only each other for company, which can make relationships and communication so much better. Why not try the beautiful spots in Paris, such as the Eifel Tower, which is the most visited and romantic monument. Many people propose under the tower, and it is just magical.
New experiences will give us moments to remember. While traveling to a new place, everything is brand new to you, and you can choose to create the memory you want. It can be a serious visit or a magical one. You are in charge of what you see, and how you remember it. Recalling memories of happiness can sustain a feeling of contentment long after the moment has passed, and new experiences and memories that can stick with you forever. Try out cycling in Amsterdam with a friend, or even just take a joy ride all by yourself. You will see things at your own pace, and can take photos or just bask in the moment to remember this amazing experience in a new country. Riding a bike can bring peace and joy to your soul, and let you see the magic of the city slowly, so that you can breathe in its beauty for years to remember.
One of the best things about traveling, besides taking a break from the reality of your life, is that you get to learn about new cultures, and even bring home newly learned skills. Whether you are learning a new recipe from the natives of the land, or maybe picking up a bit of the countries language, it’s always a beautiful way to discover different cultures around you, and maybe even teach them a thing or two. We can definitely further our knowledge and education so much just by opening our eyes and listening to what’s around us. Learning makes our brains more active, which psychologists have found increases our level of happiness, especially if we are learning something that we find enjoyable. There are so many museums in London, that you can spend all day, or even three days visiting all of them. The amounts of knowledge you may gain from checking out the beautiful London museums are endless.
