4 Amazing Places To Travel in Spring

4 Amazing Places To Travel in Spring

Spring is dawning upon us and it’s safe to say we are all anticipating the blooming of beautiful flowers and the smell of fresh grass that comes in abundance with the season. It’s the start of a new season and in some ways, it signifies the start of a new beginning. Some cultures around the world choose to celebrate New Year’s on the 1st day of Spring instead of the 1st of January.

For example, Iranians celebrate Nowruz as a symbol of a New Year. It defines the harvest festival and the month of food and life’s beauty. Hindus, on the other hand, celebrate Ponggal, which is the New Year’s Day for all Hindu believers. With various festivals celebrating their New Year in the start of spring, it excites us to travel and go around the world enjoy the festivities the world has to offer.

So, where are some places can you go? Below we provide a comprehensive list of four incredible places to ring in the new year with style and all of the beauty and warm weather that comes with the spring season.

    1. Cartagena, Columbia

    Cartagena is a Columbian city famous for its old history and beautiful culture. Columbians, in general, are known for their bright culture and their lively attitude. Cartegena’s Old Town has been made one of the UNESCO Heritage sites due to its unique architecture. Surrounded by cobbled alleys, balconies covered with bougainvillea, and churches that would take your breath away, it’s a rich source of beauty and culture.

    Cartagena is a place where you leave all your touristic habits behind, as well as your typical way of traveling. In this place, you are inclined to indulge in relaxation and enjoying the calm sun and beautiful flowers. Strolling down the Old Town and breathing the culture of the Columbians, you’ll find yourself open to change and motivated for the whole year.

    If you want to feel like a true Cartagenos, then head to Bocagrande, the Cartagena’s Miami Beach, to sip a fine cup of coffee and enjoy the view.

    You won’t regret it.

      2. Canmore and Banff, Alberta

      Banff and Canmore are the perfect Yin and Yang. Banff is a place where all adrenaline-seekers would enjoy. It’s surrounded by mountains and it’s famous National Park.[1] In the spring, it’s perfect weather for camping, hiking, as well as climbing. The National Park is surrounded by limestones and these limestones are perfect for climbers to experiment, as well as for thrill-seekers trying to camp and discover nature’s magic.

      Canmore, on the other hand, is the complete contrast of Banff. It used to be a coal-mining town and is surrounded by its versatile history as well as its unique people. After tons of articles highlighting Canmore as the city of serenity and secrets, Canmore has become the center for people who are looking forward to escaping the adrenaline of Banff.

      Canada is perfect in any season but to enjoy the true beauty of nature, nothing beats Canada in the spring.

        3. Osaka, Japan

        Japan in my personal point of view is the land of paradise, a land of beauty, and a land of tradition. From the hidden tattoo shops to the bath houses, Japan has taken life to two major extremes. Although many may critique their discipline, in my personal point of view, these disciplines are what has kept Japan’s strong culture and tradition alive.

        Osaka is a part of Japan that entices people with its beauty. Spring is the start of the Sakura (cherry blossoms) season and the cherry blossoms are a famous symbol of Japan. Osaka is the biggest host, from it’s delicious Mochi Balls to its Sakura Sake and it’s a time of celebration in Japan.

        The only months you can catch the blooming of the Sakura trees would be in the period of March to April. So if you’re planning a travel trip to Japan, then spring would be the best time to do so.

          4. Seville, Spain

          Spanish food and Spanish culture have enticed the world, from their nationalistic point of view towards their food culture to their beautiful music and language, Spain has never failed to surprise the world. Spain is a place where you would enjoy both a touristic perspective of travel as well as a serene perspective.

          Seville, on the other hand, is a land with its doors leading to the past, where history lives and the culture persists. Known as the Lucky Devils, they’re a land that has adapted for centuries. You can find the Roman influence as well as the Greek myths surrounding the beautiful city.

          In the spring, you will find the sun calming and the nature around it relaxing. Spanish people prefer taking on a relaxed approach towards life so be sure to embrace it.

          In conclusion, spring is a great time to travel, so take your chances and enjoy the cultures of spring in countries you’ve never been to.

          How to Get “I Can’t Do It” Out of Your Vocabulary

          How to Get “I Can’t Do It” Out of Your Vocabulary

          When someone says, “I can’t do it” . . . I say to myself, “What do you mean you can’t do it?” Maybe you don’t want to do it, but saying you “can’t” do it is a completely different story.

          With the right mindset, positive attitude, and a clear vision of what you want to accomplish, the only thing that is holding you back is yourself.

          Can’t is a terrible word and it has to be taken out of your vocabulary.

          By saying you can’t do something, you’re already doubting yourself, submitting to defeat, and you’re making that barrier around your life tighter.

          So today, right now, we are going to remove this word for good.

          From now on there is nothing we can’t do.

          “Attitude is Tattoo”

          Your attitude is everything; it’s your reason, your why and how, your facial expression, emotions, body language, and potentially the end result. How you approach an opportunity, and the result of it, is solely based on you — not your boss or your co-worker or friend.

          If you enter a business meeting with a sour attitude, that negative energy can spread like wildfire. People can also feel it — maybe even taste it. This is not an impression you want to leave.

          Advertising

          Now imagine you enter a business meeting with a positive attitude, that whatever happens in here is going to be your result, in your control, not someone else’s. Of course, we can’t always win, but even if the outcome is negative, your attitude and perception can turn it into a positive. The question is: can you do it?

          Of course you can, because there is nothing in this world you can’t do.

          It’s much better to be known for your positive attitude — your poise, your energy, the reason why things go so well because you are able to maintain such character. A negative attitude is easy. It’s easy to complain, it’s easy to be mad, and it’s even easier to do nothing to change it.

          When I say your “attitude is tattoo”, it sounds permanent. Tattoos can be removed, but that’s not the point. Your attitude is like a tattoo because you wear it. People can see it and sometimes, they will judge you on it. If you maintain a negative attitude, then it is permanent until you change it.

          Change your attitude and I guarantee the results change as well.

          Believe You Can Do It

          Do you know why most people say “can’t” and doubt themselves before trying anything?

          It’s our lack of self-confidence and fear on many different levels. The one thing we have to purge from ourselves is fear — fear of bad results, fear of change, fear of denial, fear of loss, the fear that makes us worry and lose sleep. Worrying is the same as going outside with an umbrella, waiting for rain to hit it. Stop worrying and move on.

          Confidence is fragile: It builds up slowly, but can shatter like glass. Project your confidence and energy into believing in yourself. This is a very important and groundbreaking step — one that is usually the hardest to take. Start telling yourself you can do something, anything, and you will do it the best to your ability. Remove doubt, remove fear, and stick with positive energy.

          Embrace Failure

          Do not fear failure. Do not run away from it. Face it, learn from it, grow, and take action. Just remember: You will never know success if you have never failed.

          Your confidence will bolster after embracing these facts. You will be immune to demoralizing results, and instead you will find ways to fix it, improve upon it, and make it better than before. You will learn to never say “can’t,” and will realize how many more opportunities you can create by removing that one word.

          Don’t let one simple and ugly word plague your confidence. You’re better and stronger than that.

          Start Making the Change

          But to actually start the process of change is very challenging.

          Why is that?

          Fear? Time? Don’t know how — or where — to start?

          It’s hard because what we’re doing is unlearning what we know. We are used to doing things a certain way, and chances are we’ve been doing them for years.

          So here are some ways that I avoid using the word “can’t”, and actually take the steps to put forth the change that I wish to see. I hope you can incorporate these methods into your life.

          Advertising

          Write down What You Want to Change

          Write it on post-its, notecards, whatever makes you comfortable — something you will always see. I usually write mine on post-its and put them all over the wall behind my monitor so I always see them.

          Tell a Friend and Talk About It

          Discussing your goals, what you want to change, is very effective when you say it out loud and tell another person other than yourself. It’s almost like saying, hey, I bet I can do it — watch me.

          When you fulfill that goal and tell your friend, it feels rewarding and will motivate you to do it again in a different aspect. Who knows? Maybe your friend adopts the same mindset as you.

          Stop Yourself from Saying the Forbidden Word

          Sometimes,I can’t control myself in public when I’m with friends, so I have to be careful with the words I use so I don’t embarrass or insult anyone.

          Treat the word “can’t” as the worst word you can possibly use. Stop yourself from saying it, mid-sentence if you must, and turn your whole perspective around — you can do it, you will do it, and nothing is impossible!

          Repetition, Repetition, Repetition

          You think this change will be overnight? No way. This is a practice. Something you’re going to be doing for the rest of your life from now until forever.

          As I said earlier, you are unlearning what you know. You know how easy it is to say you can’t do something, so by unlearning this easy practice, you’re self-disciplining yourself to live without boundaries.

          Practice this everyday, a little at a time, and before you know it, the word can’t will not be part of your language.

          Do Anything That Can Relieve Your Uncertainty

          When I catch myself saying I can’t do something or I don’t know something, looking up information on that action or subject, doing research, educating yourself, relieves that uncertainty.

          Sometimes, we think we can’t do something because the whole idea of it seems too large. We skip the small steps in our head and only focus on the end.

          Before you say you can’t do something, rewind and slow down a little bit. Focus on what the first step is, then the next. Take it a step at a time, and before you know it you will have done something you previously thought you couldn’t do.

          Final Thoughts

          You know what you must do. The first step is right now. Once you begin this habit, and really start noticing some change, you’ll realize the door to opportunity is everywhere.

          The funny thing is: Those doors have always been there. The evil word that we no longer use put a veil over our eyes because that’s how powerful that word is.
