Weekend Travel Inspiration – Develop a Sympathy

Travel Inspiration Sympathy

For me, this means that I see how other people live around our Earth, and it helps me appreciate my life and how lucky I am.  Amazingly I have noticed that just because I may not want to live the way many of these people do shepherding, hauling water, living in mud houses, often without electricity…that they are still happy.

Here are a few posts that highlight the different lifestyles I’ve come across in my travels.  Happy Reading!

Thanks for being a huge part in today’s Weekend Travel Inspiration!


  1. It is good to be reminded of how lucky you are compared with some, though I can’t help thinking sometimes that those who have less, by western standards anyway, maybe sometimes have richer and happier lives than we do because they are more community based.

    1. Rachel, When I travel in those countries we’ve labeled as third-world, I always see people smiling! More smiles than in the U.S. That tells me something.

  2. Very true, seeing how people live and more importantly learning about it by talking to people and spending time with them is one of the true benefits of travel. It’s also one of the things I really missed while staying at a resort. I linked up my post as we drove around the island getting a better glimpse of real life in Samoa. Where is your photo – could be NZ.

  3. Corinne, somehow I didn’t know you were running a weekend inspiration party or we would have swung by sooner! Sadly we missed this one, but I’ll keep my eyes open for next time 🙂 This is a wonderful idea and I love your words about consciously taking a moment to think about how others live and how fortunate you are.
