Let’s face it, we live in a broken, messed up world that seems to be getting crazier and crazier every day. If you are fearful of traveling of the country, many people definitely understand. Today let’s look at some different fears people and how we can help overcome them.
- You might just be nervous about going to a place that you don’t speak the language. First, I will say that a lot of countries are choosing to teach their children English as a second language. You might be surprised at just how many places are going to have a translator at the very least. There are also fun ways to learn the language of the country where you are going available on the internet. And just smiling and waving goes a long way to let people know you are friendly.
- No matter where you are going, it is always a good idea to read up on the country where you are going. See if the country has had much in the way of terrorist attacks. And if they are having some problems, take a look at what our government has to say.
- If you are traveling alone and are uncomfortable with that idea, there are hostels where you can get up with a group. There are also websites where you can meet up with people who are going to the same place you are. Join one of theses and try to make some friends online that you can meet up with during your travels .
I would love to hear other ideas you may have about staying safe while traveling.
