暑期档又到了,今年的重磅利好是,我们除了万年不变的三部神剧《还珠格格》《西游记》《新白娘子传奇》,竟然有了新的选择,那!就!是!《老九门》~~收视率爆表也在情理之中!绝非广告植入,anyway,所以这个暑假,你要在家追剧喽?剧嘛,确实是好剧,但是暑假是出游的好时机,回来再追也不迟啊!

 

趁着年轻,趁着暑假,快来一场说走就走的旅行吧!下面给你三个理由~~不过话说,旅行需要理由吗?需要吗!

1. Traveling teaches you to live an adventure

旅游会使你的生活变得冒险刺激

When you look back on your life, you will have moments of which you are proud and maybe a few you regret. It’s likely that the following won’t be on the latter list:

当你回顾人生,你会有很多值得骄傲的时刻,可能也有一些会让你遗憾。希望这些不会出现在你遗憾的清单上:

Bicycled across the Golden Gate Bridge.

骑自行车穿越金门大桥。

Appeared on Italian TV.

出现在意大利电视台上。

Hiked a Mayan ruin.

徒步走在玛雅废墟上。

Learned Spanish in three months.

三个月内学会西班牙语。

Toured Europe by train.

坐火车游欧洲。

They’re not on mine (fun fact: I’ve done all of the above).

至少我不会觉得遗憾(很高兴,这些我全都做过了)。

You should take the time to see the world and taste the fullness of life. It’s worth whatever investment or money or sacrifice of time required on your part. It’s not about being a tourist. It’s about experiencing true risk and adventure so you don’t have to live in fear for the rest of your life.

你应该花时间去看看这个世界,体验完整的人生。对你来说,花再多的钱和时间都是值得的。这不仅仅是要做一个旅行者,而是为了体验真正的冒险,这样你的余生将不会有遗憾。

2. Traveling helps you encounter compassion

旅游会使你心怀怜悯之心

In your youth, you will make choices that will define you. The disciplines you begin now will be with you for the rest of your life. Traveling will change you like little else can. It will put you in places that will force you to care for issues that are bigger than you.

年轻的时候,你做什么决定都取决于你自己。你应该从现在起就开始控制你的行为,这将会伴随你的余生。就像其他东西一样,旅游会改变你。它会带你去到那些地方,迫使你关心那些比你自己的世界更广阔的事情。

If you go to southeast Asia, you may encounter the slave trade. If eastern Europe, you may see the effects of genocideand religious persecution. If Haiti, you’ll witness the the ugly side Western paternalism.

如果你去东南亚,你可能会遇到奴隶交易;去东欧,你会看到种族灭绝和宗教迫害;而在海地,你会亲眼目睹到西方家长作风的丑陋面。

You will begin to understand that the world is both a big and small place. You will have a new-found respect for the pain and suffering that over half of the world takes for granted on a daily basis. And you will feel more connected to your fellow human beings in a deep and lasting way. You will learn to care.

你会开始明白,这个世界说大也大,说小也小。你会对这世界上一半以上的人们每天所遭受的习以为常的痛苦和磨难产生深切的同情,也会感受到和你的人类同胞之间更加持久而深厚的联系。你会学会关爱。

3. Traveling allows you to get some culture

旅游会增长你的文化知识

While you’re still young, you should get cultured. Get to know the world and the magnificent people that fill it.

年轻的时候应该博采众长。多了解这个世界,多向杰出的人们学习。

There’s nothing quite like walking alongside the Coliseum or seeing Michelangelo’s David in person. I can describe the city of San Juan and its amazing beaches and historic sites to you, but you really have to see it for yourself to experience it. You can read all the books in the world about the Great Wall of China or The Louvre , but being there is a different story.

没有什么能比得上在大戏院周边漫步或观赏米开朗基罗的杰作《大卫》雕像了。我可以向你描述波多黎各的圣胡安以及它那令人叹为观止的海滩和古迹,但你真的应该自己亲身体会一下。你可能读遍了世界上关于中国的长城和法国卢浮宫的书,但身临其境又是另外一种感受。

The world is a stunning place, full of outstanding works of art. See this while you’re still young. Do not squanderthis time, because you will never have it again.

这个世界是令人惊叹的,到处都是让人叹服的艺术品。趁着你还年轻好好看看这世界。不要浪费时间,因为青春真的一去就不会再来了。

You won’t always be young, and life won’t always be just about you. So travel and experience the world for all it’s worth. You will become a person of culture, adventure and compassion.

你不会永远年轻,你的生活中也不会永远只是你自己。现在就去旅行吧,尽情体验这个世界,因为它值得你去了解。你会成为一个博学多识、富于冒险精神和同情心的人。
