Every country has a (multi)cultural footprint. And, travel encourages open-mindedness about exploring these cultural footprints.
Travel lets us experience new cultures. Sometimes these cultures are similar to ours, and at times they are not at all familiar to our own. Through travel, we observe traditions, experience history, taste new cuisines, take in art forms, meet locals, and appreciate alternative perceptions of life.
About the CultureTrav blog
On this blog, we dig deeper at cultural immersion. We’re interested in hearing stories about how you connect with locals, and embark on new adventures. We appreciate reading stories about hole-in-the-wall cafes, spontaneous moments, and less-than-ideal situations. We enjoy stories that highlight what makes other cultures unique, but also those that look at similarities that connect us as people.
Our founder, Nicolette Orlemans, comes from a multicultural background. She has always been interested in hearing others’ stories. Nicolette also hosts a weekly #CultureTrav Twitter chat bringing travelers together to share impressions and perspectives. We encourage you to share stories of your hometowns, of your local communities, and of your experiences that have enriched you.
How do we do this?
– We share stories and lessons learned by travelers in foreign cultures, and give them a voice to share their recommendations, too.
– In our series with Storytellers, travelers share about their own cultures at home, and what travel has further taught them about our world.
– Through conversations with travel entrepreneurs, we hear about the interesting endeavors they’ve launched in the world of travel.
