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 [...]

Stop playing small: Think big and travel the world

2021-02-03T15:56:32+00:00

If you play not to lose rather than play to win, you are possibly playing small. Fortunately, there are many ways to stop playing small from now on. Meet the best mentors by traveling the world. Spending lots of time with those who cannot give you the right advice on your future is not the best growth-driven habit. To think big, you must have mentors and coaches who are able to give you helpful advice and valuable feedback. I have traveled the world in order to meet the right mentors for my career. The best mentors are obviously living in different [...]

Why do people go shopping during international trips?

2020-12-16T15:08:41+00:00

For many international travellers, buying a luxury handbag is not something uncommon: perhaps just as common as buying a T-shirt at Target. While the appeal of luxury goods is obvious – the leather is soft; the logo is flashy – the price tag can be off-putting. Unless you have a good job with a high salary, buying luxury consumer goods can create a financial burden. Yet studies have revealed that humans do not always act rationally. Many consumers who buy luxury goods are not in a financial position to be able to afford luxury goods. The proof of this may be [...]

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 [...]

Global Travel and Global Warming: We Only Have One Planet

2020-10-25T09:07:59+00:00

Scientists and economists are beginning to consider the serious economic and environmental consequences if we fail to reduce global carbon emissions quickly. The most expensive thing we can do is nothing. The cost of global warming: damage to property and infrastructure is real. Sea-level rises, floods, droughts, wildfires, and extreme storms require expensive repairs of essential infrastructure such as homes, roads, bridges, railroad tracks, airport runways, power lines, dams, levees, and seawalls. Disruptions in daily life related to climate change can lead to loss of work and school days and can harm trade, transportation, agriculture, fisheries, energy production, and tourism. Heavy [...]
