not just another place…

it’s always an amazing experience to travel… whenever you can see something new gives you a feeling of youth… that’s because when you are young, everything is new… well, that’s how you should feel throughout life… learning and discovering… two of my favorite things in life…

recently, i traveled to Germany… more importantly, the north of Germany… Hamburg… what a beautiful place! i was informed that most Americans go to Berlin or Munich… if that is true, it is unfortunate that they miss out on the lush, green city in the north… great people, public transportation, food, cityscape, history, nightlife, etc… i was hyped on it… even though i didn’t skate as much as i would have liked (resting injuries), there were tons of spots to shred…

you gain a new perspective of where you come from when you travel… international travel challenges your perspective more so than domestic, in my opinion… you see the subtle differences in their way of life… you gain knowledge of what the other place values and respects… not only do you learn about them, but it helps you question why you see it differently… or why you see it at all… it’s a healthy and altering experience…

of course we live in a great place… the US is a vast and beautiful country… so much variety in so many different attributes in life… dialects, landscapes, food, cultures, lifestyles, etc… but sometimes different is better… not everything we do is the best… it’s not… and if you see it this way, then you’ve never been outside of your country…

don’t listen to stereotypes of other places in the world… go see it for yourself… see the differences… see what is right or wrong… eat something new (my favorite way to learn)… get a history lesson from a local… speak the language… formulate your own opinions…

to be youthful and knowledgeable is the ultimate way of life…

peace and noLove…
