Traveling, people, languages, cultures.

Travel:

Traveling. When i say travel, i do not merely talk about the excitement of getting into the countries or places I’m heading to but I’m also talking about the phase, the journey to get there. Traveling in a new country, starting with being in the airport with my luggage,seeing people around me with their suitcases and little children excited about where they’re heading to, seeing air hostesses walking around it’s all so fascinating and exciting for me as arriving in the destination itself.
What i also love about traveling is the fact that you’re entering into a new country,a new culture. Different scent,different air,new people, people with different mindsets, new culture, different food, different customs, new traditions…
Traveling is like going on a life adventure. It’s all so fascinating.

Cultures & Foreign languages

This goes with my love of travel, what is travel without the encounter of meeting and seeing new people and blending with a complete different culture than your own? For me what makes travel as enjoyable is the encounter with new people and getting yourself emerged in a culture and language.

Anyway.Languages. What i love about them? Everything. Languages are beautiful and God’s wonderful creation: hearing a language speaking it and seeing how people converse in that language is the beauty of it all.
I love languages and i love learning them. For me there is absolutely no limit in how many languages a person can learn and be fluent in.

People

One does not have to travel to encounter amazing people, you can meet people everywhere.
People have stories, this woman you see everyday on your way to the bus stop you never say “Hi” to, she has a past, a story to tell, a life.
I find people fascinating, the fact that every single person you see has a story, a past and that if they made a decision to talk to you a little bit about their life, it could change your views on life forever is amazing to me.
People have stories; this girl you see at school, how is she when she’s at home? How does her home and life outside of school looks like? She is loud at school but how is she…at home? These questions are ones i ask myself constantly when i look around and see individuals. People are fascinating and with stories to tell.

So yes, those were some of the things i love the most in life and let me say that as a journalist, things i would love and enjoy the most about my job is the ability and chance to meet with different people with stories to tell; giving them a voice. And through my travels, reports and interviews letting people discover things they’ve never seen and known before.

Life is a discovery…
