Previously, I talked about going to Europe. Today I’d like to discuss my travel observation from down under. Hopefully, you will enjoy reading my international travel journal entries. More about Liam, the Australian school boy: I mentioned that when my nephew and I went to Australia, he met a new friend Liam. Now I’m going to share with you something interesting about this school boy who is absolutely intelligent, fascinating and inspiring.

International Travel and Climate Change: How to protect the earth

2020-08-31T01:36:27+00:00

Ocean currents move heat around the world and have a major effect on the world’s climate. Nowhere is this clearer than in the North Atlantic Ocean. The Gulf Stream and the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt move huge volumes of warm salty tropical water north to the Greenland coast. Heat from this water helps keep the countries of northwest Europe, which are at the same latitude as Labrador and Greenland, relatively warm. How the Great Ocean Conveyor Belt could cause an Ice Age: Many scientists, however, are warning that the North Atlantic might cool down, perhaps by the end of the century. [...]

Rich Culture, Wise People (My International Travel Journal)

2020-05-22T15:09:31+00:00

Our planet has a rich culture and fascinating history. Please allow me to share my international travel journal with you on this blog. The beauty of Belgium (international travel journal – Entry 1): Flanders, in the European country, Belgium, famed for its medieval cities and motorways that can be seen from space, is one of the most urban corners of Europe. Yet, this densely populated area is seeing a mini-boom in a new type of agriculture where farmers sell direct to consumers. The movement, known as community-supported agriculture, is the antithesis of the sprawling global distribution chains of modern industrial food [...]

How international travel improves your mental health

2020-04-04T13:55:35+00:00

A major study in Australia indicates that at least 30% of Australians suffer from mental health issues such as anxiety and depression. Further examination shows that the modern lifestyle in western countries is not really supporting mental health these days (think social media and smartphones). Therefore, a large number of psychologists are recommending various ways to reduce stress, and one of these effective methods is international travel. Travel can cure anxiety disorder, including hypervigilance. According to Professor Kevin Gournay (author of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: Recovery after accident and disaster), physical exercise may cure hypervigilance because exercise burns off arousal. Clearly, international [...]

International Travel: Living a Life without Regret

2020-02-26T03:31:34+00:00

International Travel: Living a Life without Regret All regrets are mistakes, but not all mistakes are regrets. By that I mean only when you judge yourself for making a mistake can a mistake become a regret. Bronnie Ware (author of The Top Five Regrets of the Dying) once said, “I know a lady who wanted to travel internationally, but her husband didn’t allow her to do it. After her husband had been sent to a nursing home, she started to travel in her 80s alone. Yet a few weeks later, she was sent to a nursing home as well due to [...]
