The World Is A Book

,and those who do not travel read only one page – St. Augustine.

Can it be anything else that describes traveling more perfectly than the above parking-lot_camels_giza_egyptfamous quote? Probably not. It’s a beautiful world, so are its creatures. We have got so much to see. The wide variety of the world – varied landscapes, various countries, its people, different religion and culture – all make this planet truly something to be amazed by. And it is a dream of any traveler to explore the beauty of it. Traveling helps you know the planet where you live in; it helps you know its people, their religion, culture and heritage, it teaches you about various other living creatures of this planet, and finally it teaches you a simple lesson – to love and care about others, about the whole world. Traveling connects people with each other; it works as your true friend,savage-sunset philosopher and guide. And this is exactly the reason why they say, “He who does not travel does not know the value of men”. True they are, aren’t they?There is a fine difference between a tourist and a traveler. A tourist only knows where he/she has been, but a traveler can give you the minute details about the place. According to Miriam Beard, “Traveling is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living”. Though the article started with describing this world a beautiful one, which the planet truly is, but the other side of the coin is we do also live in a world, the-tower-bridge_london_england_001where we often need to live under tremendous pressure – be it in the professional sphere of life or in the personal. We often want to escape from this constriction and look forward to go to the other side of the rope where the world comes to you in a completely different look, taste and color. Traveling can provide you the much needed ‘oxygen’ that you always require to succeed in every walk of your life. It re-energizes your body and soul.So, what to see? Where to travel?

Fun With Italian Culture

Published by in Italy on October 23rd, 2013

I spent a great weekend with my Italian Friends, and we found this video, so I thought I would present it here. It is part of a series for teaching English to Native Italian speakers. Nonetheless it was quite an enjoyable watch. And it also helped in my understanding the conversations amongst my fine company.
