Jamaican: Let's Travel

As an international educator, I look forward to school breaks where I can travel to different locations. One of the perks of working abroad is that visiting neighbouring countries becomes cheaper to visit than if I were living in Jamaica. I firmly believe that experiences are more important than material possessions.  Things come and things go, but memories are forever.

Why Travel?

Travelling is the best way to learn about the world. It opens our minds, breaks cultural barriers and even brings people together. We meet new friends, gain new knowledge and appreciate other ways of life in faraway places. The more we travel the more it becomes clear that kindness, friendship and gratitude are universal. It also makes us explore our own limits by challenging us with new languages, environments or situations.

Benefits of Traveling

When you travel, you are exposed to new cultures and ways of life. You get to see how other people live, which helps build your self-confidence and makes it easier for you to adapt when faced with challenges in the future.
Traveling also gives you an opportunity to learn more about yourself as well as the world around you. When we travel alone or with others, we can observe what works best for us when solving problems or making decisions. This makes us more independent since we know our strengths and weaknesses better than before!
Finally, traveling teaches us appreciation for different cultures around the world–you may even find yourself adopting some of their traditions once back home!

Decisions, Decisions!

Where to go is an important aspect of travelling. It’s the first question that pops up in your mind when you start planning a vacation. Everyone has a different idea of what to see and do while travelling. Though there are some countries which are popular for their vibrant culture, picturesque views and world heritage sites. It might be worth exploring those places but you must also not ignore the other less known countries. So I would suggest you keep reading, don’t stop at the first country you come across and explore them all! Destinations listed here will leave you wondering how come they’re not popular among more travellers! 

Take the information contained here as a guide and use it as a resource before creating a travel plan of your own.  Another resource to check out for the countries I might not cover are the travel forums of the various sites.  Here are some examples: TripAdvisor forum, forum and even Google Maps. 

Happy Travels!
