stories for young people
You know, I have only had one holiday on my own. I had to give a talk up in Queensland so I decided I would take a small holiday in Brisbane. Now, I planned what I would do for what I would get up to on these days and then what time I would do those things.
Things started off pretty well, I was in a new location and somewhere I haven’t been on my own before. I studied the area so I wouldn’t get lost whilst on holiday. The only thing I hadn’t prepared for was the people. Now I am sure that there are great people in Brisbane, I actually have plenty of friends that live there now, however when I was there, I was treated with little respect. This is by workers, people living there and business owners. I had no idea what was going on, I present myself adequately, I was being polite, but people were behaving very rude to me.
In the end I realised that everywhere you go, there will be good and bad people you meet and sometimes you might just end up meeting a bad batch of people. It might be that there is a different social dynamic there as well.
This shouldn’t deter you from going on holidays though. Everyone should take a trip they have never been to at least once a year. You can have fantastic holidays ones that are unbelievable and the rare bad ones. The good thing with the bad ones is that you can learn about what went wrong and it can change your perspective on the world.
I’ll be travelling to Brisbane again this year, look out Queensland! I’m coming for you hahah.
