Do at least once a year a trip to a foreign country that you’ve never seen before: only with a plane / bus ticket, backpack and sleeping bag. Try to meet locals on the road and in a café to get to know them, talk to them, eat and try to stay with them. You can also organize the stay on the travel-rings eg SERVAS, Coachsurfers.com, etc.

Background & Impact:
Foreign countries and cultures broaden our horizons enormously, because we are faced with entirely new ways of thinking and ways of life. This reinforces our general tolerance of other people – we do not move as quickly into the judging.
