5 Word Vacation Tips

AS usual, I participate in Hashtag Games on Twitter. This one specifically is dear to me because I love travelling and I'm definitely in vacation mode now! So here are the tips I gave, and adding to the #WednesdayWisdom which I always find a quote to add to the tweeple's cauldron, that makes it more than vacation tips, they are quotes to live by:

-Bring A Book With You

I remember like it was today. It was back on 1984, it was during the summer in Brazil. I was on a vacation with my family. My aunt had brought books for everyone. I chose "Sphinx", a novel by Robin Cook written in 1979. I went reading with no expectations at all. And what was my surprise. I realized I love that kind of thriller since I was ten when I found out about mystery books. So much so that I already had written some tales about that same age. It was an unforgettable summer, not only for the songs that played on the radio, such as Duran Duran's "Save A Prayer", but for the working vacation I had, along with the Egyptologist from the plot, and working my brains out to find the enigmas, already planning to follow my career as a writer.

-Talk To Everyone You Meet

They will always have messages for us, we just have to be willing to listen to the words they say, have an open heart and see the wisdom they can bring even in the smallest things... Or even if they are mere reflections of a history long gone. {Or maybe not yet overcome!)

- Give High Five To EVERYONE!

We never know what people may have gone through in their lives. And when we are on vacation mode we are prepared to meet the unexpected, we feel vulnerable because we are in places that might be unfamiliar to us. So why not open a smile and give high-fives to everyone that passes by? Even for four-fingerd frog!

-Go Out And Play Hard

Surprises are hidden in every corner. Go explore! And that definitely means in our daily life. Creativity happens in the most strange places.

-Dance Every Place You Can

And that again serves to everything we do in our basic routine. Find your bliss, feel the joy, dance and enjoy!

-Find Beauty In Every Corner

There's a saying that goes like this: "Beuaty is in the eye of the beholder." If we always see something beautiful, that we can take with us, not in the material sense, but in a metaphysical plane and plan, then we may replay it in our memories.

-Respect Those Who Are Around

And then again this serves us well and throughout our whole lives. I've seen in the news over and over again, people at the zoos cuddling animals, and outdoor in nature messing around with the gorillas, the crocodiles, the stingrays (even experienced people got hurt by doing so). Shame on them by not being careful. It's a jungle out there!

-Teach And Learn Something New

Find your golden pot!
