Living Locally | Keep an open mind
I am continuing on with step four of my Living Locally philosophy. I have covered three of my five steps to more meaningful travel so that you can have more than just a great trip this year. This is Living Locally. The first three steps were about putting yourself in their shoes , making the first attempt at communication and blending in.
STEP FOUR: Forget what you’ve known to be true and keep an open mind
It’s a big world out there, and nobody does it exactly like we do. While I’m not asking you to pretend you aren’t American and aren’t a tourist, I’m simply suggesting that you leave your expectations behind and don’t compare things to how we would have done it back home. I have learned that there is always more than one way to get something done. You never know, you might actually discover something you like better. I have learned that pasta anyway other than al dente is a crime and the last time I used Ranch dressing on my salad is a very distant memory.
I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.
Love it?? Pass it on!
