Since my job at 3B Medical Inc. allows me to travel, I’ve been fortunate enough to visit several countries that have been on my list — Canada, Greece, Germany, and Italy are just a few. Although every country is different, one aspect remains the same: my travel philosophy. I’m a firm believer in traveling spontaneously because it provides a richer travel experience. Not only will you discover new places, but you’ll be doing so with no pressure, you’ll discover things other tourists will not, and the experience will push you out of your comfort zone.
It gets you out of your comfort zone.
With smartphones serving as a GPS everywhere we go, we’re always comforted by the fact that if we do get lost, we have a trusty smartphone to guide us back on track. Not only that, but GPS’s make it handy for us to know what restaurants, parks, bars and stores are surrounding us. Although it’s great to be in-the-know about your surroundings, it can inhibit you from finding places that aren’t on the map. Put the phone away and let yourself wander the area. You can also ask a local for help, which is something most people don’t do today since they have computers in their pockets. Although you will be put out of your comfort zone, you’ll be able to discover new places straight from a local.
