We are learning all the time. Whether it’s behaviors, activities, or yoga poses, we subconsciously absorb information from the world around us. When we travel, we expand our world view and gain new knowledge, make new friends, and broaden our perspective on life.
Please enjoy our brief list of destinations that will give you the education of your life!
Bali. Learn about a new culture. 95% of the population of Bali practices Hinduism and there are over 20,000 intricately designed temples that require traditional dress. As in many ancient religions, Hindu and Balinese holidays are based on the cycle of nature. They mark the change of seasons and celebrate the birth and death of all things.
Italy. Learn about history. We are lucky to have places so well preserved that give us insights into our past. The Aragonese Castle in Ischia, for example, was built around 474 BC and still stands today after pirate raids and countless wreckages and rebuilds.
Iceland. Learn about the value of silence. Iceland clocks in at just over three hundred and twenty thousand people (for scale- the state of new york has 8.3 million). It has just one city considered a ‘major city,’ where about a third of the population lives. This means the rest of the country is lava fields and stretches of green grass, punctuated by horse and sheep farms. This lets you experience the complete, eerie silence, literally being miles from another human.
Costa Rica. Learn about happiness. U.K.-based New Economics Foundation’s new “Happy Planet Index” rated 151 nations by measuring ecological sustainability against well-being and life expectancy. Costa Rica topped the list as the worlds happiest country. Not, evidently, because they are the wealthiest or most advanced country, but because of the loving nature of the people towards others and their home.
