  Traveling is one of life’s great joys. It’s a way to see the world and learn about places you’ve never been before. Here are some ways to help you make the most of your travel experience.

  旅行是人生一大乐趣之一。旅行的方式,让我们放眼看世界以及了解自己以前从未去过的地方。这里有一些方法有助于你充分体验旅行的乐趣。

  1. Plan for the unexpected

  旅途中的意外惊喜

  Anitinerarycan be helpful, but you won’t be able to plan everything down to the smallest detail. How could you possibly have known about that little restaurant at the back of that alley before you arrived, or that friendly local who invited who into his house to hear him play thesanturi? Often, the best parts of a trip are a result of an adventure.

  旅行日程可能会有所帮助,但你无法计划到一切最小的细节。你不到那里的话,你怎么可能知道那个巷子后面的那个小餐馆呢?或者说,你怎么可能预料到友好的当地人会邀请你到他家去听他演奏扬琴?通常情况下,一次旅行的最佳部分就是冒险。

  2. Not getting what you want or getting what you didn’t want can be a blessing in disguise

  没有收获你想要的东西或收获了你不想要的东西, 因祸得福的感觉

  When you have to take a later bus or a differentferry, you have no choice but to accept it. This is how a lot of successful people learn to be happy when things don’t go their way.

  在你没有选择的情况下,就必须得搭乘下一辆公共汽车或下一辆渡轮,没办法你就只能接受它。这就是很多成功人士如何从事情出乎意料的情况下所得到的快乐。

  3. The best things can come from the worst experiences

  最糟糕的经历却让人有最美好的体验

  Once, when I was in Sicily, I wasswindledby a stranger for a hundred dollars. At first I was devastated. I spent the entire next day thinking about what I should have done to keep my money, and what I would do if I had it. But what I learned from this about humanity, about the nature of good and evil within people, and how circumstances force them to do bad things showed me a lot about myself and how to cope with misfortune.

  有一次我在西西里岛,被一个陌生人骗走了一百美元。起初我非常震惊,第二天,我一整天都在想如果不让骗子成功得逞的话,我应该怎么做。但从这件事情上,我学到的关于人性、关于人们的性本善和性本恶、关于环境迫使人去做坏事,都让我对自己审视良多,已经让我知道了如何应对不幸。

  4. Price and value are two different things

  价格和价值是两码事

  The cost of a trip may be a couple of thousand dollars, depending on how big you go. But the value it could have on your life and your memories could be priceless. Think about how much you are willing to spend, sure, but also consider what else you want from your vacation, who you want to meet, what kind of experiences you want to have, and how you want to remember it ten years from now.

  旅行可能会有几千美元的花销,这取决于你的个人经济状况。这笔费用可能会对你的生活是笔不菲的开销,但留给你的回忆却是无价的。想想你愿意花多少钱去旅行一次,当然,还可以考虑你想从假期中获得什么,你想见谁,你想拥有什么样的经历体验,以及如何才能把这次旅行体验记在心里长达十年的时间。

  5. Don’t follow others’ footsteps and find your own path

  不要步人后尘,要找到自己的路

  Traveling in a guided tour can be informative and fun, but I look forward to wandering away from the group, downlabyrinthinealleys, intofalafelshops andsectarianneighborhoods, to experience my own understanding of a city and itsenvirons. The same applies to when I come home from my trip.

在导游的带领下,旅游融知识性和乐趣性于一体,但我期待着不跟团旅游的体验,体验着走一走迷宫般复杂的小巷,走进沙拉三明治店和教区体验一下,亲自去体验了解一下一个城市及其周围地区。在我旅行归来时,这样的体验方式照样能行。
