Turkey Unleashed

Here are  top things you can do once you land in Turkey.

1. Istanbul: This is a great first stop for an introduction to the Turkish culture. This metropolitan city is packed with history, museums, mosques, and ruins. Be sure to visit Hagia Sofia , Blue Mosque, Grand Bazaar, and the Spice Market for your shopping souvenir needs. If you are a social butterfly and curious about the nightlife, you can head to Taksim Square where there are plenty of clubs, bars, and lounges for you to choose. There is no shortage of things to do while in Istanbul.

2. Cappadocia :You will be in awe with this natural beauty, with view of the mountains from every corner of your eyes. Take a two-hour trek through Pigeon Valley. Highlight activity you must do is the magical experience of hot air ballooning. It is worth waking up early to catch the sunrise while flying over the Fairy Chimneys and the surrounding areas!

3. Ephesus :This is a place for the history buffs. Be captured with the amount of history here with the two-story library and 2,000-year-old public toilets. Spend a few hours to walk and take pictures of the entire area of Ephesus consisting of a theatre, a museum, and plenty of ancient ruins.

4. Pamukkale : Pamukkale is a natural wonder and a beauty you’ve never seen before. There are hot springs or deep and shallow water along with unique rock formations . Although a lot of people swim in it , please don’t do it to preserve this place and keep it clean. You are not allowed to wear shoes for the same reason.

5.Hierapolis: Hierapolis is a place where you will find some ancient Roman baths and remains and also tombs. But the most attractive thing is the Cleopatra Pool. A lot of people swim in this pool as the ancient story says that Cleopatra swam here and turned into a beautiful young lady.

6.Galliopli: Pay a visit to this old war site in remembrance of those who lost their lives in WWI. Learn about the history, visit ANZAC, and war cemeteries.

7 Super Professional Skills Developed While Travelling Solo

 

 

1) Researching Skills

When you travel solo to another country you need to research a lot before you decide to go . If you go with a travel agent or tour operator then your work is limited, but then again you do have to research on which agency/tour operator to go with. You have to research on country specific information, customs, safety measures and many more things. So travelling solo develops your researching skills which helps you in your professional world throughout your life.

2) Planning/Organising Skills

If you hire a travel agency or tour operator then they do all the planning for you , but if you decide to travel solo then you have to be in charge and make your own plans. You have to do enormous amount of planning and organising while travelling solo. For e.g where to travel , which hotels to book, how many days to spend in a city or country . I know a lot of people follow the lonely planet guide, but even then you could be changing the plans in between, and hence this skill is widely developed when you travel solo.

3) Decision Making Skills

While planning to travel solo there are many decisions you need to take. Even if you have planned your entire travel from home, there are times when you need to change plans and make decisions.

For e.g. Scenario A) You missed a flight –

Should you now just take on the next flight at a premium price, or should you stay back and enjoy for an additional day .

Scenario B) You met a stranger on the street willing to travel with you-

Should you go with him/her or should you avoid the risk.

There are many such situations where you need to make decisions and think on your feet.

4) People Skills

When you travel with your family and friends you make less of an effort to meet and mingle with other people. But when you are alone, you have little choice but to talk to strangers. You learn and observe a lot from people you meet in your travels, and this enhances your people skills further.

5) Intercultural Skills

If you travel to many different countries you become more receptive about other cultures and learn a lot. You realise why some people behave the way they do when you are in their country, and this makes you more open to accepting people from other nationalities.

6) Time Management

You have only limited time in hand and you want to make the most of your journey within the time frame. So you get up early as you have to be on time to catch the flight, bus , train. You have to be fast in grabbing your breakfast if you have a coach waiting for you for the city tour. You need to even rush back from your shopping spree, lest you miss the coach. So there are many occasions when you are required to manage your time effectively while travelling.

7)Confidence

You build a lot of confidence as you are facing challenges alone . Even if you are trapped in a situation which appears scary at first , soon you will be able to handle it and this will add onto your confidence levels. You build confidence in independently doing things, you build confidence in facing challenges alone , you build confidence to be adaptive and flexible, you build confidence in dealing with strangers , you build confidence in dealing with visa officers/immigration personnels etc. So you develop confidence in many areas that will help you in your professional and personal life throughout.

In my opinion these 7 skills are the most important skills you will need in any profession to do a good job, besides your technical know-how. What do you guys think? Do you agree, disagree ? Are there any skills you have developed while travelling?
