I have been away from home for the longest time. My mom and I are estranged. I thought it was just a phase: the mother-daughter-rift drama, but she just did not stop driving me crazy.
After I graduated from high school, I was offered a modeling job in San Francisco. From then on, I have been doing modeling gigs in Paris and Milan. I was blessed enough have a lot offers and allowed me to establish my “homebase” in Paris, the fashion capital in the world. I am very close to the designers and everything.
I got a phone call from mom the other day, though, that my dad is gravely ill. I made no second thoughts. I arranged a rental agreement with one of my model friends for my Paris home and hired an international relocation company right away for my things to be shipped back to the states. Anything for my Papa.
When it comes to reading some travelers’ travel tips blog; one would surely learn how to properly mingle with locals from his vacation place. This is because people who would write in their blogs would talk about the different experiences they had with their vacation. They would write about how they had gone through with their vacation, how they mingled with the local people, and things like their local culture and customs that the people have in their country.
This is a really good way to study about the local culture and custom of the people. One would learn how to act with respect and courtesy towards the people of his vacation place so that he would not end up doing some offensive things with them. One would also learn about the things that they want to do and so prepare himself in order for him to be able to join such activities.
Aside from that, one would also learn about the local prices of goods, commodities, and local services in the place where he is going to have his vacation. This would be really good so if ever he encounters someone giving a high price; he would know to haggle down and get the real price. This way, he would avoid being a victim of people who are overpricing their goods and services for the tourists.
