Where to Travel Based on Your Myers-Briggs Type
If you like beaches, here’s the article you need to plan your next vacation.
I’ve been to five out of the ten.
On this list, Copacabana Beach in Rio is my all time favorite. But I actually like Ipanema beach a little better. It’s more crowded, but cleaner and safer than Copacabana.
Have any of you been to all 10?
Working remotely from a tropical country has a unique appeal. If your work is location independent, why tie yourself down to any city you don’t enjoy?
I recently spent over a month doing my writing/blogging work from Mexico. It was one of the best moves I’ve ever made. Why should I suffer through winter in Ohio when I don’t have to? Writing in Mexico in the sun was a far better option than being stuck in the snow in Ohio.
Much of my income comes from teaching classes, so remote work won’t be my sole occupation for quite some time. With that said, I plan on consolidating my training classes in the future to allow me the opportunity to do several months of remote work from beautiful tropical countries for a good portion of the year.
If being a digital nomad is appealing to you, you’ll learn a lot by reading the following article.
Effective today, the TSA has banned “emotional support animals” from flying.
According to the article:
“The agency said Wednesday that it was rewriting the rules partly because passengers carrying unusual animals on board “eroded the public trust in legitimate service animals.” It also cited the increasing frequency of people “fraudulently representing their pets as service animals,” and a rise in misbehavior by emotional-support animals.”
Leave your emotional support penguins home, folks.
Check out the two articles linked below. There seems to be a cottage industry producing paperwork for fake negative Covid-19 tests.
I predict that in the future making faked Covid-19 test results and vaccinations will be a profitable enterprise.
Besides the fraud, there are lots of other reasons why requiring testing before boarding a flight would be a really bad idea.
It’s a myth that exotic world travel is too expensive for most people.
Airfare is expensive, but when you get to some of these countries, you will be paying $10-$20 a night for a hotel and $3 per meal.
When everything is factored in, it’s often far cheaper than a visit to Disneyland. I’ve been to most of these destinations. I wasn’t a huge fan of Bolivia, but the others were awesome.
Have you heard of the latest “begpacking” trend? It’s when a Western tourist runs out of money in a foreign country and sets up as a beggar asking locals for money. What a strange phenomenon!
I can’t say that I’ve seen this more than a couple times in my travels.
For more information, take a look at this article that describes the practice in Thailand.
“Ignorant, ‘cool’ trend continues
Despite this, this ignorance is now a ‘cool’ trend among hip young millennials some of whom continue to come to Thailand. The activities are insulting to the occupations of Thai men and women as well as their right to a livelihood in their own country, something many of these young people have no understanding of apparently. It also, inherently, deeply disrespectful to the laws of the kingdom.”
I haven’t been to Thailand since 2013. With their crazy Covid-19 restrictions, it doesn’t look like I’ll be going back anytime soon. I’ll give you a “begpacking” update the next time I make it to Asia.
Some very funny and painfully accurate realities shared through humorous drawings. They will make you laugh.
