Id built up the belief that “you need to be ready” before you travel to India. This had come mainly from external voices and opinions of others. I would often get told how ‘full on’ it was to travel to India. The traffic, the smells, cows in the street, the poverty, the large amount of people, the craziness of the train stations and the difference in culture.
As much as I believe that travel is super valuable and leaves you with some incredible learnings and growth and some wonderful habits, it can also develop some bad habits. Habits that would be a good idea to break.
If you are or have been travelling for a long period of time and return home, you might find you have unconsciously adopted some of these bad habits.
The excitement of travelling to a new country fluttered around my stomach. Seeing new places is something I live for. Im curious to learn about new cultures, see new sites and wonder at the world at large.So you can imagine how I was feeling as I stepped off the aeroplane at Kuching in Borneo. I had heard of Borneo before but had never really looked into it. Truth be told, I had to look on a map to see where it was located, for those of you wondering like I was it sits above the western side of Indonesia in the south china sea. Comprised of three countries Bruni, Indonesia and Malaysia.
