Practice Your Language Skills
No matter what language you may have dabbled in throughout the years, there’s no better way to improve your proficiency than to immerse yourself in the culture. While you may not be able to carry on elaborate conversations, simply ordering a coffee or asking for directions is an exciting and rewarding stepping stone.
Experience Foreign Culture and Cuisine
If you’ve always wanted to try an authentic Polish pierogi or dine on traditional Swedish meatballs, ask your travel agent about booking a trip that will satisfy your curious palate. As you explore the local cuisine, you’re sure to get a few lessons on the attitudes and behaviors of the local people as well. From how people conduct business to how they socialize, there’s no better way to learn about a society than by interacting in it.
Bring History to Life
Traveling to a foreign country allows you to walk in the footsteps of great historical figures. You can stand where gladiators fought for their lives in the Roman Colosseum or follow the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu and imagine how each sight may have looked centuries ago. You can also explore the roots of your ancestors and gain a better understanding of what their lives were like.
