“People don’t take trips, trips take people.”
~ John Steinbeck
Be curious. Immerse yourself. Engage. Connect. Step outside your comfort zone. Practice self-care.
All of these, and more. All of the research and planning that goes into a trip lays the groundwork and makes us more comfortable with the unknown. But the fact remains that trips take on a life of their own – as they should, if we’re truly wanting unique and meaningful experiences. So how to deal with the situations we didn’t foresee? First, take a deep breath and clear your head. And then, be reassured and perhaps learn from the tips, tools, and stories shared here. While there are an infinite number of possibilities, the hope is that something here will help you solve a problem or shed light on a different angle – or perhaps just inspire confidence that you are not alone and are capable of handling the unexpected.
