They say traveling is the best teacher, more so if you actually learn a useful skill. You could learn how to cook, or ride a bike. Whatever it is, make sure it’s something useful.
We all have our fears, it’s human nature. But don’t let these fears stop you from making the most out of your life. If you’re afraid of deep water, go on a scuba-diving trip, if you’re afraid of heights climb a mountain. Once you’ve conquered your fear, you’ll realize that the only thing stopping you is yourself.
Learning another language is always a valuable skill. Take a trip to learn the local language, and observe how this can open doors to new opportunities and even cheaper transactions.

Spend the whole day in a comfortable hotel, wrap yourself around a duvet, and relax. This is your time to forget about any responsibilities.

Five-star hotels and luxury accommodations is one way to enjoy a vacation, but if you really want to get to know a country, you have to live like a local. You can do this through couch-surfing or renting a bed, but make sure it’s safe!
Free yourself from deadlines and work, don’t overthink things and just book it.
