6. Be open
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
– Mark Twain
With an open mind you are more likely to have an amazing time on the road. If you are open to new experiences you will come back with memories and stories of a whole other world, and you will forever carry it with you. Try new things, talk to new people and make new friends. To travel is to open doors.
