Traveling Beyond Tourism

Traveling Beyond Tourism

You are walking down the bustling town center with your overflowing Osprey 75 Liter strapped to your back like a turtle shell, last night’s laundry drying from every available strap.  Tourist tassels at their finest.  But hey, who can fault you for being efficient?  No matter; right now, fashion is the obvious concern.  Your day pack does the trick, goofy-footed to your chest so that your head floats in a mass of ErgoFIt, AirVenting, GoreTex-y goodness. Congratulations, you’re now a pregnant turtle.  With flair. We’ve all been there.  It’s part of the travel game.  The awkward styles come with being a tourist, which contrary to popular belief, is not always a dirty word.  Sometimes it’s best to take the tours, go on the cruises, pay the entrance fees, and check off numbers 1-6 on your adrenaline flavored bucket list.  If you only have a short time in a place, it’s important to live it up as a blatant foreigner and get your money’s worth. However there are times when we want to set the pregnant turtle down for a while.  When fitting in, or rather joining in, is more conducive to our travel goals.  As we do join in, we […]

Teaching Abroad And Reaching Out

Teaching Abroad And Reaching Out

When we live in our hometown for too long we can reach a certain level of ‘stuckness’. We go to the same places, do the same things each weekend and don’t make much effort to meet new people because of our existing group of friends. We feel that we have enough friends, so why should we bother making new friends? We stick with what we know and we stay in a circle of comfort. Of course being content with our lives is something to strive for but when there is a sense of laziness, and no motivation for self-growth within our lives, drastic change is needed! I have lived in Cape Town for twenty four years and have always loved living there but I got to a stage where I felt sick of it and wanted to go somewhere far away and teach English! I felt like I wasn’t moving forward there and taking this leap was what I needed. Coming to teach English in Taiwan, a place I didn’t know a lot about but I felt good about has definitely been the right decision. Travelling alone and getting lost has made me learn, whatever happens ‘don’t panic’. Stay as calm and centred as […]
