Ukrainian tourism: Joy is underrated

2021-04-17T14:39:12+00:00

Because I don’t speak Russian / Ukrainian perfectly, I sometimes get confused – people in Ukraine misunderstand me at times as I’m living in Ukraine right now. But I’ve learned a lot from being misunderstood. Please let me explain. Walk in the nature. My life in Ukraine is best characterized by walking in the nature every morning. At last, I’m not living in a high-rise apartment building which is surrounded by other high-rise apartment buildings and tall office buildings in a crowded, big city. Now I’m living in Ukraine and the current house I live in is near a beautiful park. [...]

My very interesting trip to Europe

2021-04-07T09:21:36+00:00

After reading Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love, I decided to travel alone and discover another version of myself. I went to Europe and stayed there for six months. Here are my findings and learning. The choice is mine; my life is my own. Before I left for Europe, I wasn’t in the ideal state – I just ended a highly stressful relationship; I was looking to change my career; I desperately needed a break from the reality. Well, when I married my partner in 2011, I was young and still trying to figure out myself. My partner was also young, and [...]

European tourism: How to actually enjoy life

2021-04-03T10:39:18+00:00

A European travel agent once said, “The most common regret shared by people nearing death is ‘I wish that I had let myself be happier’. Actually, many senior citizens in their 70s and 80s are travelling to Europe because they don’t want to have that regret. Of course, it’s never too late to enjoy life, but in my view, people probably should travel when they are young – when they are more energetic, because when people enjoy life earlier, they can always savor those beautiful experiences for the rest of their lives – they actually benefit from those experiences for a [...]

Visiting Austria: a medical retreat

2021-03-22T12:54:12+00:00

Medical retreats are different from casual retreats such as meditation retreats and spiritual retreats. More specifically, a medical retreat is where you do a thorough medical check and receive treatments. Meanwhile, you have a relaxing time at a resort. In this article, I’d like to introduce Lanserhof, a health center in Europe. Next time you go to Austria, you may consider investing in your health and wellbeing there. This is a spa where affluent people go to detox. Because a medical retreat requires medical staff, advanced facilities and a stricter diet, it is much more expensive than a standard retreat. Therefore, [...]

Dare to rest: A trip to Europe

2021-02-18T13:48:01+00:00

When I was living in my old environment, I felt stuck to some degree because things became stagnant. Hence, my trip to Europe changed the dynamics fundamentally. I’m eternally grateful for that experience.   Why I changed my environment: Sometimes when you feel stagnant, confused or depressed, you should totally change your environment. This can be a very enlightening experience for you, too. Trust me. Tosha Silver wrote a book called Outrageous Openness in which she talks about the importance of surrender – in order to let old stories go, we must surrender first. That’s why changing my environment and going to [...]

Visiting Europe: a self-care guide

2021-01-02T13:25:11+00:00

Many people suffer from acne when they are travelling in a different country because they are still trying to get used to a new environment. This is very normal, so there is nothing to worry about. If you are one of these individuals, I have some solutions for you: How to deal with acne when you are on vacation: Acne starts when the sebum produced by the oil glands in the skin becomes clogged in the pores. This situation causes inflammation and triggers bacteria on your skin to get out of control. Usually, it’s exacerbated by various factors. Don’t panic if [...]

Vitamins can’t replace a good diet; watching TV can’t replace international travel

2020-12-08T13:23:31+00:00

Nowadays because of the pandemic, a lot of people don’t get enough vitamins. For example, Vitamin D can only be created in your body when you get enough sunlight. But since you are at home most of time these days, you may not get enough sunlight for Vitamin D production in your body. Also, due to the pandemic, many individuals watch TV instead of travel internationally. But that’s not good for their wellbeing. What is a better approach? Vitamins and minerals are essential for keeping us in good health. While eating a varied diet should give us all the nutrients we [...]

International travel: What’s good for your body and soul?

2020-11-08T14:47:51+00:00

Most adults would know they’re meant to eat two or more serves of fruit and five or more serves of vegetables every day. Whether or not they get there is another question. A recent national survey conducted by health organizations and international travel agencies reported 45% of Australian women and 56% of Australian men didn’t eat enough fruit. And 90% of women and 96% of men didn’t eat enough vegetables. This figure is worse than for the preceding ten years. ⦁ International travel is good for your soul; healthy food is good for your body. Men had on average 1.6 serves [...]

Body language is also a part of culture – learnings from international trips

2020-10-25T10:43:14+00:00

It turns out that body language is a part of culture as well, according to my key learnings from international trips over the years. Different cultures, different body language: People from different cultures use different body language which can cause conflicts, tensions and misunderstandings in the workplace. For example, in some cultures, the physical distance between two individuals is small when they are having a conversation. Yet in other cultures, the physical distance between two people is much bigger when they are talking to each other. If two staff members are from two very different cultures in which body language is [...]

Ecotourism and the Environment: Observations and Insights

2020-10-22T03:29:19+00:00

A cow on overage releases between 70 and 120 kg of Methane per year. Methane is a greenhouse gas like carbon dioxide (CO2). But the negative effect on the climate of Methane is 23 times higher than the effect of CO2. Therefore, the release of about 100 kg Methane per year for each cow is equivalent to about 2,300 kg of CO2 per year.  Let's compare this value of 2,300 kg of CO2: the same amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) is created by using 1,000 liters of petrol. In a car using 8 liters of petrol per 100 km, you could [...]
