The theory of relativity in practice or one year around the world.
On the eve of the anniversary of my traveling around the world I was thing how many things have happened over the last year? Thouse events would be enough for 10 years life of the average citizen. I’m also feel like so many years have passed …
Malaysia, Singapore, Austria, Italy, Germany, Croatia, Czech Republic, Russia, USA, Turkey.
I’m complitelly confused in time of year, time zones, parts of the world.
I remember the lessons of geography, we were forced to learn which countries bordering the Russian Federation, as well as other countries and states. At that time I was already convinsed that I will learn world by travelling. And it happened.
One day I just packed my entire life in the 23 kg suitcase, got into a taxi and went to the airport.
The opportunity to live in different countries, learn the life of local people, their mentality, helps to see the world from all sides. Gives you a chance understand something that you can not understand by living in the same city and country.
Many watch TV, but not many people thought about propaganda in advertising. Aside from the obvious desire to sell advertising also carries a psychological context, based on the mentality of the citizens of a country. Consider advertising for cars of any brand. The Russian advertising usually talking about a young family (27-30 years) who buys a car; or that a man gives like a present to his woman. If you look at the Italian advertising, you will see that there talking about parents adults (47-50 years) and children (25-30 years), and parents bought the car for child. And all because in Russia generally thought that the age of 30 a person becomes independent, as a rule he already has a family and at least one child, they live on their own living space, he height of his career and everything is fine. In Italy, a 30-year-old children continue to live with their parents. They plaining to get married and have a child around 35 years old. That means before this time teoreticaly parents have to provide everything. This is not to question who is right and who is not, this is just a statement of facts.
All country have a there are certain associations that are usually have a small border with reality.
Russia – vodka, bears, cold;
Italy – pasta, pizza;
USA – Fast-food, fat people;
Asians – poor, Thailand, many of them;
Germans – sausages, beer, Hitler, and so on.
Of course, in each of the association has some truth, but she’s so small that it can not serve as a global characteristic of peoples and countries.
Why people think that in Russia we bears roam around the city and all population alcoholics, I do not understand. Because, for example, for the Europeans normally drink alcohol daily for lunch and dinner. Who beer drinkers who wine, and then they drive the car. The only difference is in the amount of alcohol consumed. Russian if sat at the table, untill he is fell down, do not stop. Europeans are mostly drink for appetite. There are certainly plenty of drinkers, but it does not matter if it’s not in the context about Russia.
Italy great clear coat beautiful country. Famous for historic contribution to the spiritual development of the population and the fashion industry. But this country associated in humans with food.
Americans really eat fast food and most of them big, but they have a lot of men with a beautiful figure and beautiful girls. And they are very friendly, kind and helpful people who are open to communication.
Asians generally live richer then all for today. Not all of course, but in the majority. Travelling all year round and in what do whwtever they want.
And the Germans – an organized nation accustomed to order and work. In Germany, a nice to walk along the streets and ride on the roads.
– Mobile connection.
I was surprise when I discovery the fact that in all countries in which I’ve been when you buy some tarif it is valid throughout the country. Roaming is turned on only when you cross the border. Package includes: calls, sms, internet. And in Russia … in every area of their own rules! Terribly uncomfortable! Maybe abroad and more expensive packages, but they are worth it.
One of the most important discoveries for me turned out to be related to the supertition. Most recently, I could be attributed to a number of superstitious people, but today for me really funny remember about it.
For example New Year. For us it is the most important family holiday of the year. For Europeans the most important is Christmas. And New Year’s just another reason to make a paty. I’m not talking about the Chinese who celebrate it at all in another month.
“If you laugh a lot, you’ll cry later” – Try to convince someone abroad in allegiance to this judgment.
And with this interesting paradox I meeting every day and it’s inspiring.
With the constant change of residence I changed sense of time and the ability to organize themselves. In every country I live a small life. In the short time it is necessary to adapt, meet new people, make friends with them, to know the country and the mindset of Aboriginal, their desires and dreams! And then try to look on their life through their eyes and try fall in love. It helps me to feel and understand the charm of living in a each country.
It has been almost a year ago and I have never regretted about my choice. My life has turned into one big adventure and I am happy to share with you my discoveries and observations!
