The traveler's good resolutions for 2019
A new year is starting and U2GUIDE wishes you travels, encounters and… to have an impact. Now that the festivities are over, it is time to do our list of the new year’s good resolutions. “Working out more”? “Eating healthier”? Yes of course, but how to have an impact? We have prepared an inspiring list of 10 good resolutions.
2. Learn a new language
Even though not knowing the local language is not always an obstacle to fully enjoy a journey, learning it is very similar to a traveling metaphor: go beyond your fears, adapt, exchange and share to feel even closer to the locals.
3. Travel somewhere you’ve always dreamed to go
4. Do more sustainable tourism
2019 is the year of sustainable and responsible tourism. Reduce your carbon footprint, respect local populations, support a cause while traveling… All these are good practices that we can already do to travel better.
5. Suppport an NGO or an association
This is one of the resolutions that we value the most. Take the time to make the world a better place by supporting an NGO or an association. U2GUIDE’s philosophy is to allow each of us to improve the world and preserve the environment while travelling.
6. Disconnect and enjoy the present moment
Don’t you think that happiness can be found elsewhere than in our phones? This year let’s focus on the essentials: sharing moments with friends or locals, reading a paper novel, meditating in the middle of the forest… Forget all about networks and take the time to recharge your batteries.
7. Do more slow tourism: take your time during your next trip
During these past few years, we have been traveling faster and further. But now, slow tourism is the new way of traveling: take your time, live authentic experiences and make the pleasure of traveling a priority. In other words, enjoy deeper your travel experience.
8. Share your travel moments and open up to others
Some people think that happiness is only true if it is shared. This year open up to others and go travel with friends or strangers. Go and meet the locals, sleep at the locals’, let yourself be guided by the people around you.
9. Do microadventure: discover your own country
You don’t have to go to the other side of the world to travel. The experiences can also take place nearby your city. Do more microadventure: discovering your own country is also an inexpensive and practical way to experience daily adventure.
10. Discover worldwide cuisine
We finish this list with the most gourmet resolution. During your travels, discover the worldwide cuisine. Taste and learn how to cook typical dishes with locals, go to traditional restaurants and discover another culinary world.
