Remember that you’re only traveling because you’ve got time on your hands, so relax, take a look around you, and know that what you call a problem now will be a funny story later. Not so in Vilnius, Lithuania, especially when you have no phone and no car.
A mind at ease is more likely to find you a solution in any case. So instead of the soft, coddled ball of unimaginative pudge that you’ve become, you need to get creative. Learn how to count, say in the local language (especially in Poland – damn good beer, I tell you).

Not only was it a great experience, but it also reminded me of the power of travel to heal the soul and expand the mind: 1. As Americans, we’re used to instant gratification and attentive customer service.
However, the rest of the world does not necessarily share this ethos.
An introverted woman may become even shyer and closed up around a guy she's attracted to, while a more extroverted woman may become overly catty and mean-natured with her teasing toward the man she's smitten with.
Sadly, most guys have no idea that an interested woman may act in any of these ways unless they've had considerable experience with the opposite sex.
