Have you ever been on a business trip and never left your hotel or the convention center? Or perhaps you did get out of the hotel, but sadly it was for the preplanned corporate events you were forced to attend. I certainly have been guilty of falling victim to this from time to time. I totally get it. Your exhausted, maybe a bit stressed, dehydrated and just want to decompress with a soft bed, bad tv and room service. The problem with it is that nothing different ever happens to you. You don't meet anyone new, you don't find the local, crack in the wall restaurant with the best tamales on the planet and you certainly don't go home with a great story.
Traveling in and of itself is uncomfortable. So perhaps on your next trip, you should use the occasion and embrace all things uncomfortable.
During a year spent abroad, we forced ourselves into all sorts uncomfortable experiences and can most confidently say that we are the better for it. Here are a few choice pictures that captured the essence and serendipity of traveling beyond your comfort zone.
All of these experiences only came from embracing the uncomfortable. What are you waiting for!?
