Top 9 travel rules from Paulo Coelho

The famous philosopher writer Paulo Coelho shared his travel rules. Listen to them if you want your every trip to be special.

  1. Avoid the museums.The advice may seem absurd, but let's think: when you are in a foreign city, would it not be more interesting to know its present than its past? People feel obliged to go to museums, because from childhood they have been inculcated this way of contact with culture.

Of course, it is important to go to museums, but you should know what you want to see, otherwise you will leave them with the feeling that you have seen a couple of very important things for your life, but you don’t know what.

  1. Go to the bars.It is there that you can see the life of the city. I do not mean discos, and those places where local people meet, they drink, they talk about God and the universe, and they are always open for conversation. Just buy yourself a newspaper, sit with her and watch for those who come and go.

If someone starts a conversation, join it, even if the topic does not seem very interesting.You will not see the beauty of the road if you look at it through the open door.

  1. Be open.The best guides are local. They all know, are proud of their city, but do not work for the agency. Just go out, choose a person, ask him a simple question: “How to get there?”.


If this fails with the first, it will work with the second, and then, I assure you, you will find a wonderful accompaniment for the whole day.

  1. Travel alone or, if you are married or married, with a partner.This is the only way to truly leave your country. If you travel in a group, you only pretend to travel to another country, while continuing to speak your language, follow the instructions of the guide and think more about the chatter in the group than about the place where you came.
  2. Do not compare.Do not compare anything: neither prices, nor purity, nor quality of life, nor transport. Nothing! You do not travel to prove that you live better. Meet the lives of others and find what you can learn from them.
  3. Realize that everyone understands you.If you don’t even speak the language of this country, do not be afraid: I have been to many countries where I could not speak with words, but I still found help everywhere, received important advice and even found friends.

Some are afraid to just get lost while traveling if they are alone. It is enough just to have a hotel business card in your pocket and, at the very least, use a taxi, putting the business card under the driver’s nose.

  1. Do not make too many purchases.Spend money on things you don’t have to carry: theater tickets, restaurants, excursions. In our time, the global market and the Internet, you can buy everything and not pay for the advantage.


  2. Do not try to drive the world in one month.It is better to stay four or five days in one city than to visit five cities in a week.

The city can be compared to a capricious woman who takes time to show herself from all sides and let herself be seduced.

  1. Travel is an adventure.Henry Miller said: it is better to discover an unfamiliar church, about which no one had heard before, than to go to Rome and feel obliged to visit the Sistine Chapel. Go there, but wander through the alleys, feel the freedom and find something that you yourself do not know anything and that, perhaps, will change your life.
