8. “You’ll start hatting tourists!” – haha
Once you pass first 7 points of this article, you’ll hate tourists and you will call yourself a traveler!
You’ll see them almost everywhere! Having LAZY holiday, loading themselves with food in fancy places, taking taxi everywhere, complaining about services (being impatient – point n.3), walking with umbrellas, wasting money on stupidities, etc. Simply, the exact opposite what do!
9. Chillout! Relax! Meditate!
While traveling you’ll pass so many places where you just don’t want to take a picture and leave! You want to stay there enjoy the moment, view, sounds & noises or atmosphere.
It clears your mind and you just focus on the present moment! You learn how to truly relax / meditate!
