Have I ever told you I love traveling so much. Even when I was in Uniten, I was never in my room. I'd run here and there, in and out, rushing back and forth of the hostel apartment every single day. I just can't seem to stay put. Especially when I'd have all the freedom in the world to live independently. When I was in primary school, my first trip was the US. I can't seem to remember why our family was there but I remembered my father had some sort of work to do and we stayed there with my uncle. That was the best trip ever other than I had to skipped school,I got to to go to Disneyland. I was so excited but what a shame I was terrified of Mickey mouse because I sweare I've seen Mickey way smaller in the TV rather than in real live. But my brother was the opposite, he kept on coming to Mickey to shake hands until every other children was annoyed with him for not giving them a chance. Mickey just shook his head.
We also got to go to hollywood studio. Even though I was 7 at that time, I know I was able to appreciate the movie business there in California. It was fantastic. I can say that I was more observant that time rather than now. How they made Star trek character disappear and all. king kong and Jaws movie was just made within the studio gate. Even still, it felt so real I cried thinking that King Kong was going to kidnap me. He was humongous. What a naive kid I was.
As a bona fide city girl, most of my traveling life I spent it by traveling to big conventional cities. Paris, California, Edinburgh, Frankfurt, London, Barcelona and the recent one was Rome. The first thing that came to mind would be the Colosseum. There's so much to be told about the great Roman architecture. I won't be babbling here about the Colosseum history nor the Rome empire, believe me if I would to it would take more than 1 page of this blog. But I can say that it is worth to know the interior and why it is build as it is.
But if you have the chance to travel, doesn't matter if it Rome or "Jelapang Padi". Make an effort to know the history and the culture of the places that you're going to visit and the people that you are going to meet. It will give more meaning to your travel experiences and maybe you'll get some knowledges here and there for you to teach your children in the future. Enjoy yourself and at the same time learn a thing or two about people, about cultures, about the world.
Otherwise, why do you think god created all the wonders in the world in the first place?
For you to learn and appreciate of course!
