Eight things I learned during my three months around the world

  • Always have a person in your photographs. Without that, you can find a hundred images of any place on Google Images.
  • There’s often a good reason certain places are popular for tourists. Sometimes it’s okay to stay on the beaten path.
  • Generally, it’s better not to post photos on Facebook while travelling. It’s too easy to focus on talking about travelling without actually doing it.
  • You have to stay for an extended period or visit twice to really understand a city or country.
  • Almost everyone in the world is nice and helpful if you take the time to talk to them.
  • If you expect people to try to speak English with you, you should make the effort to at least learn a few phrases in their language. Try to imagine a Latvian tourist in your country stopping you in the street and asking for directions in Latvian.
  • It’s all about the people you meet.
  • It’s all about the people you meet.
