How to Immerse Yourself in a New Culture

We all love traveling and discovering new places; we go to far flung places to see the most beautiful scenery and to try to understand a bit more about other cultures. However, to truly appreciate a new culture, you should use all your five senses, not just your eyesight.

Think about your last three trips and ask yourself how many things you actually did as opposed to things you saw. I mean, I know sometimes we don’t have a lot of time to delve into some sort of exciting activity, but you should make the effort.

How come when you look back at your past adventures, it’s either the funny and tragic stories or the crazy things you did that you remember the most?

Because they matter!

What do you think would have a greater impact in your life, a picture next to the Mona Lisa or a cheese and wine night with a bunch of French people? Unless you’re really obsessed with art, I’m sure you’ll be craving that amazing brie with the Pinot Noir from Bourgogne (Burgundy) for the rest of your life.
