Absolutely, traveling is a good thing because you will learn to research new ideas for your entrepreneurship, and you will be exploring the world away from your comfort zone.

Next, you will become innovative in solving hassles and problems.  Further, You will learn to brainstorm for an answer when and if you get stranded, miss a flight, or become ill from meal poisoning in an overseas country. Make sure you have international health insurance.

In addition, you will use the same answer for your business, “why, what, and how”.

Economics:
Firstly, understanding the basics of economics can help all travelers to think more conscientiously about why things work differently in different countries. As a result, understanding the currency exchange rate determines a country’s level of economic health.

Without a doubt, exchange rates play a vital role in any country’s level of trade. Therefore, it is critical to a free market economy in the world.

Consequently, a higher-valued currency makes a country’s import cheaper, and its exports more expensive. As I have said, a higher exchange rate can worsen a country’s balance of trade, whereas a lower exchange rate could improve it.

Planning:
In any case, you will learn about planning.  After all, you will learn how to plan for your new adventure or plan a business trip.

Personal Finance /math:
Traveling is about math.  Thereforeyou will learn how to negotiate and bargain for the best price in a bazaar.  As well as balancing your budget, also you will gain knowledge about managing your bank account.

Geography and History:
Traveling is a typical form of education. Therefore, it is about geography and world history, and lastly, the locals will provide you the primary source of firsthand evidence.

Entrepreneurship:
You will be exposed to new ideas and new opportunities for your entrepreneurship business.  Consequently, you will learn not everyone has the same desires and the same goals. Explore the world, talk to people and learn from them, I did.

Why traveling
Traveling makes you more independent.  It helps you to rely on yourself. I learned to rely on myself before I ask for help. Although, asking for help is not a bad thing.

Meanwhile, you will explore the delicious, and not-so-delicious food from around the world instead of eating the same food every day.

Nevertheless, you will learn about appreciating the environment.

Why traveling is important:

Traveling is important because it makes you realize how much you don’t know and how close-minded you were living.  Expand your horizon in whatever form it will take you.

Traveling de-stresses you, especially when we put so much pressure on ourselves.

For the business traveler, traveling will improve your management skills in a good way.  What’s more, traveling is not only about your cash flow, it’s about the knowledge you will gain.

You will make memories when you travel without a doubt. Although the wars took away our belongings, but they could not take away our memories.

In conclusion, we will always have stories to share with the people we love.

My travels on local cuisine

Wherever I go, I always try to experience each town as locals do. I travel by plane or train. My travels started when I was a child and until after I had two wonderful boys.

Travel helped me to be more social.

Cyprus and Greece
Most importantly, in Cyprus, I like to eat Halloumi cheese with honey, Cypriot Trahana soup should not be missed, and Tahini dip, a taste of a 4000-year-old dessert wine called Commandaria produced in the Troodos mountains, and Greek coffee.

In fact, the best fish I had is in Greece and the best Feta cheese.

France
For breakfast in Paris, I will have chocolate croissant, French cappuccino, and charcuterie for lunch et oui, je parle le Français. The language of love. La langue de l’amour.

The Democratic Republic of the Congo
I will have papaya and mango fruit, and Poulet à la Moambé in the Rep. Of The Congo.

Therefore, I lived in the African jungle of Kongolo. It is a town in the Tanganyika Province, located on the west bank of the Lualaba River, the largest headstream of the Congo River.

While French is the official language, I also learned to speak Swahili in Kongolo, and in Kinshasa, I learn to speak Lingala.

In addition to that, I had the opportunity to fly over Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Without a doubt, this was one of my best experiences.

England and Belgium
Certainly, I had to have the famous Fish and Chips in England, and then, I enjoyed the best Chocolate Côte D’or, French fries, and mussels in Belgium.

Switzerland
When I was in boarding school in Belgium for Christmas, my friends and I took the train from Belgium to Switzerland to learn how to ski.  In spite of this, I fell many times, but I never gave up.  I even skied in one of the mountains on top of the Alps.

Colorado
How to be a part of the Old West.  We traveled to the Cherokee Park Dude Ranch where the Cherokee Indians traveled through this area in 1849 on their return from the Pacific while searching for a new settlement. Living the life of a cowboy/cowgirl.

New Orleans
A very delicious red beans and rice dish at the Gumbo Shop in New Orleans also, I suggest you try Beignets at Café Du Monde for breakfast.

California
For the perfect picnic, and sampling different wines, we traveled to V. Sattui’s stone winery in St. Helena, California.

Arizona
We traveled to Sedona and for the first time, I had French fries from sweet potatoes, and for breakfast, I had toast with jam made from the cactus.

Now I reside in Arizona teaching French, Digital Media Fundamentals, Web design, World History, Economics, and Entrepreneurship.  Live it, you have one life.

In my travels, I learned to love international music. I felt more connected with the people.

When you travel, you will live history, and not only read history in the books of world history.

Lorsque vous voyagez, vous vivez l’histoire, et vous ne vous contentez pas de lire l’histoire dans les livres d’histoire mondiale.  

Especially, I like to say thanks to the photographers from Unsplash, Daryl Bleach, Floyd Kots, and Cyril Mazarin, and to all my new friends I met along the way for making my journeys unforgettable.

Someone I admire Itchy Boots

Her name is Noraly.  Riding motorcycles and traveling the world are the two biggest passions of her life.

In 2018, she quit her job as a geologist, sold her belongings, and left The Netherlands permanently to live on the road.  In other words, not everybody can do what she is doing, but I must say, she is a brave lady.

Her first ride in South Africa:
Her first real ride on her Honda CRF250L  in South Africa!  Riding her motorcycle on her own and staying with local.  Also, she decides to leave the big city of Johannesburg and start riding North for a bit on the first asphalt and the first dirt road on South African soil.

Exchange knowledge:
Overall, we will exchange knowledge with others as we learn from them, too.

Her blog: https://www.itchyboots.com

In the second episode, she is leaving Bulungula, South Africa’s wild coast. She is making her way to a tiny place called Hogsback, in the misty mountains of South Africa. On the way, something unexpected happened, both for her and a group of local girls!  Check it out?

In other words, Nothing Beats Experience
