Regardless of how much I love traveling, I’m gonna be honest – long-haul flights are brutal, especially flying coach! Before I got the hang of it, I would board all excited but too many hours later, arrive feeling achy and irritable and trying not to glare at the immigration officers 🙂
Exotic foreign travel doesn’t have to be scary. With the right precautions and preparations, your venture to a foreign (language) country can be quite exciting, especially if you learn a little about the culture and common greetings before getting there. This is especially relevant if you do not speak, write or read the local language. But what a wonderful way to get outside your comfort zone and challenge yourself!
