The fundament of building resilience

Culture provides a larger sense of who we are, where we come from and where we belong. Culture can provide us with a lens through which we frame, relate to or understand events. A culture doesn’t have to be defined by racial or ethnic background. It can be identified by where the person’s heart sits, or where they feel the most understood or the greatest sense of belonging. We can participate in and belong to many cultures, though we usually identify mainly with one. When we look at culture this way, it becomes a very fluid entity, applicable to all people.

 

The best way to explore different cultures is by travel. Evidence-backed traveling makes your mind happy and healthy: it's a great stress buster, it helps to reinvent oneself, it boosts happiness and satisfaction, it makes a person mentally resilient and it enhances creativity.

Join Luna - a certified lisenced tourist guide -

on a cultural tour in her spare time

Connecting people with others from their own cultural background and beliefs are essential to promoting and maintaining resiliency (i.e., the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties). It’s a way for people to share their strengths and acknowledge their challenges—to have a cultural relationship - this is what Luna aims to achieve in her spare time.

 

Sometimes, having a cultural relationship means you can sit with someone and feel a sense of peace because you know, without having to explain or express in words, they understand where you’ve been and what you’ve experienced – which provides you a greater and unique experience.

Some decades ago – about 200 years – the shape of Europe looked completely differently. There was one powerful family that has ruled, controlled and influenced the European society like no other for nearly 650 years. Though the family has disappeared in the landscape today, their soul is still powerfully controlled in the background.

 

When confronted with any crisis, the vital importance of culture and travel is revealed. We are witnessing the resilience and ability of the creative and tourism sector to adapt quickly.

 

Traveling allows you to meet people of different cultures, with diverse traditions and distinctive lifestyles. As you travel and discover these newly found worlds, take a moment to reflect not only on the differences that you observe in their lifestyle and behavior but on the things that unite us.

Whether you are dealing with business partners, traveling in a group or as an individual in Central Europe understanding the European culture with s a plus. A certified professional guide is able to provide smashing entertaining tour content combined with hard facts which ease the immediate understanding.
