Can A Vacation Make You A Better Person?

Can A Vacation Make You A Better Person?

Can a vacation make you a better person? Well, of course, that depends on how you focus on the vacation. A ‘vacation’ is simply a term used to attribute traveling in a convenient format with time limitations. However, the aspect of travel is not something that can be adequately described in a brochure, or even the best sales pitch of your travel representative. The virtues and benefits you take away from traveling are yours to experience, and sometimes, yes, they can culminate in a better you. Here’s how…

Opening Minds

Travel will broaden your mind. This is important to think about. Often we can get into a routine of going to work, coming home, working out, watching television or Netflix and sleeping. Rinse and repeat all year, until we gain a two-week vacation to lay on a beach and maybe read a novel. We’re not suggesting that your schedule is bad it’s just that your mind could be fed in such a superior way. Because travel can open your mind to new ways of thinking, new people, new events, new things to experience. There could be a whole hidden side of you that you have yet to experience, just waiting to get out. You could be the best salsa dancer in the world. You’ll never know unless you try.

Force To Communicate

When out of your comfort zone in this way, you are forced to communicate with people around you whom you might not have otherwise met. Many people find that the language barrier can be a problem, but we’d suggest it’s simply a fun challenge. To do this will help you find similarities and wonder in the people around the world you otherwise would not interface with. You’ll find humor, goodwill and openness in most people you meet. Then you’ll realize that no matter how many sensational tabloid news articles you read, that the world is much more harmonious than you might think.

ONE | TWO | THREE | FOUR | FIVE

  1. The Ark Bamboo Bag is not a new item, it has been trending since last summer. And that’s the funny thing about fashion. While some items come and go, other come and never quite leave. I got my hands on one for me trip already and have linked it for you below.
  2. The Bamboo Shoulder Bag I have seen around a bit and I am tempted to get one but it’s so similar to the Ark Bamboo Bag that I am not sure yet.
  3. The Straw Taco Clutch would be perfect, I mean I will be in Mexico – home of the taco. 🙂 I love that this style is a clutch and the bright color.
  4. Speaking of bright color, what about the Tassel Cross Body Bag? Isn’t it perfect? I love how colorful it is and it would make the perfect summer accessory…
  5. Finally the Circle Straw Crossbody Bag. This one seems to be built to last years, which means it could be a great investment piece.

Decision, decision… Which one would you get? Leave me a comment below with your favorite. 😉

A Vacation Can Be A Refreshing Experience – If You Do It Right

A vacation can be a refreshing experience, if you do it right. This means taking the time to plan your travel exploits in ways that make sense to you.

It could be that they simply want to relax in a beautiful location, such as the Courtyard Nassau Downtown in the Bahamas. Sitting on a beach, sipping on a cocktail and listening to relaxing music can be most people’s idea of heaven, and we have absolutely no cause to dispute that idea.
