During your travels what has been the most important thing you have learned?

Can be anything. About yourself, what to take/not take, what to say/not say to people, to pre book acommodation....just any lessons you may have learned?

I started, to relate more, to people from other cultures, instead of just my own. I saw that i can have interesting conversations, with them, and even like hanging out, with them.

Especially after travelling on my own for the first time a few years ago, I have learned to be more independent and make my own decisions without asking for somebody elses' advice.

My best lesson is to always remember that, when you're in the daily grind of work that seems never ending, there is a big, bright, interesting world out there just waiting to be re-explored.

Not sure if this is a lesson or not but before I traveled there were a group of people I found it hard to understand and since traveling, limited thought it's been, I understand them even less. That group - racists.

I think I also learnt to be more independent, but conversely I also learnt how and when to ask for help and advice rather than foolishly stumbling about without asking.

OK --I agree with all the warm fuzzy life lessons pepole have posted, but I'll go a bit of a different way....

My best lesson : a comfortable pair of walking shoes is indispensable... :)

Best lesson I have learnt from my trip around the world is to always remain open to unexpected oportunities that might come along the way. Don't let the initial plan/itinerary rule your trip, let it flow at will.
