Immersion – Daily Log Days 36 – 39

My first work trip was amazing. I had a great time, and I learned a great deal of useful information. While the town I visited was small, becoming immersed in the people and culture was an invaluable experience. That concept is the inspiration for today’s thought.

Thought of the Day

I don’t understand people who go to New York or Chicago and eat at a Domino’s. Why wouldn’t you sample the local wares at a famous town establishment? Similarly, why go overseas and stay at a Hilton? Couldn’t you do that in the United States? People often travel very poorly, remaining distant from the culture and community of wherever they decide to go. I think that’s a terrible way to go anywhere. Yes, other cultures and places can be different from what you’re used to, but that’s sort of the point. If every place in the world was the same, then there wouldn’t be much reason to travel at all. Next time you go somewhere, take the time to really immerse yourself in everything the community has to offer. You will find that experience will be much more fulfilling.
