Is there a reason why do many want to go on holidays? There most certainly is. Most people want a change from their usual lives, and it is a widely used concept by Barrack Obama during his presidential campaign. However, it does have many disappointments with many encountering obstacles or met with unexpected changes. Though, I believe that it always the rarity rather than the norm. And despite it all, many would continue to go on holidas. What are the possible disappointments then? Holidays can have unexpected changes even more than the cost of the trip was originally supposed to incur which burns and even larger hole in your pocket than originally. However, a traveller often knows this(making extra money brought on the trip to be of importance—extra souvenirs, medical expenses or being robbed. You get the idea.) If you fall I’ll, and just happen not to pick your healthcare choices carefully, further limited by your inability to understand the local language. Well, I have a tale just for they which would convince you to pick up the language of the country you’re visiting, no matter whether you know it even exists. I once had a friend who got sick during an overseas school trip(in Vietnam), just last year. The teachers brought him to an international hospital, and winded up with a bill of over 2000 US dollars. And when they brought him to a local hospital(relying on a translator of course), it barely added up to ten Singaporean dollars, for the same exact treatment too. I know it would make your jaw drop, it is a great amount of money spent to be treating a stomachache. Hence, moral of the lesson, either know a little of the langauge of the country you are visiting and you probably would not run into this sort of incident. Another way that holidays can be ruined is when your encounter a lousy tour guide. He can have no idea what he is talking about—likely never checked his facts, or even worse made them all up. This can enrage most natives, I imagine you would be too. Think of this, a tour guide tells tales about your culture, and none of it even makes the slightest sense to you, yet they unknowingly accept it due to their lack of knowledge. You probably want to throttle that guide, right? There are even more unpleasant types you can meet. Such as the one who talks too quickly, or snaps the moment when questions are asked. You probably would also dislike him for he may have ruined one too good a moment for you or became one of the times where you wished that you never came. However the change that holidays can never be replaced. The contrast and experience we gain through those few days of living away from their comfort zone. At the same time, they have the strong belief that they have the ability to control their lives, no one can take that right from them. Thus, holidays are jmlrktbrsn. Either to find out what we plan can come to fruition, and enjoy that fleeting moment where they are in control of their lives; not thinking that it is always in then hands of another. If we step out, we would always get a new perspective than if we did not. Changes in lifestyle can always make is appreciate what we have and become more contented. Besides, there are always glorious sights nto see in the world. From the statue of Liberty, the Great Wall of China and to the Eiffel Tower. These sgmughrs can only be magnificent if we have actually seen it for ourselves, allowing ourselves to enjoy it in reality. Exotic places can always change how we view a certain culture. There are some climates which many want to experience but may never have the chance—my obsession with snow basically. Holidays can give us the chance to satisfy it, and have us leaving without regrets. In conclusion, holidays can be pleasurable or life changing. Many come back with a different perspective than before, and some may come to regret it. Planning is always important, even for holidays. As I always hear from teachers, “fail to plan, is planning to fail.” If you fail to plan, it’s a gamble which may not return on investment(the chances of hitting jackpot are representative of that) and if you do, you have the assurance that it will be a perfect holiday.
