Some people believe that traveling is merely witnessing breath taking views while others think that it is about getting lost and finding oneself. It has been held true by Asian, especially the Singaporeans who, according to Visa’s Travel Intentions. 95% of them have traveled more than the Asia Pacific. It goes to show that they love to travel and it is now becoming part of their culture.

Truth be told, you will find few of people in the world who dislike traveling, and there are so many out there who confess that they are “travel obsessed”. They spend their entire days thinking about travel-related things. For some, travel is life and something they wouldn’t have any other way and this is where we cross the line of distinguishing what makes a tourist and what constitutes a traveler at heart and in practice.

Tourists document moments; Travelers live it

There is nothing wrong about sharing your whereabouts specifically your travels on Instagram and Facebook but experiences become more precious when not spend behind the screen.

A traveler lives in the moment because he doesn’t want it to pass by, he knows when to snap a real good photo and savor the rest.

Tourists miss home; Travelers think where to go next

Tourists feel home sick, they miss their room back home and overlook the opportunity that traveling brings. A real traveler feels at home wherever he goes, he believes that life actually starts when one leaves the so called “comfort zone” and that there is nothing more fantastic than waking up in a different place.

Tourists go with the pack; travelers do wander

Tourists would always stay with the pack, stick to guide maps and magazines and are pretty much contented with taking photos. A traveler will wander around, explore their way and search their own experience. They don’t waste opportunities where fun and adventure waits go home with a great story to tell.

Tourists have lots of baggage; travelers pack light

Most tourists travel for comfort and they bring it as they move from one place to another which makes them carry loads of stuff. Travelers, on the other hand, bring basics and see whatever is available out there, do and consume anything just like any local. For the most part, they intend to experience and see things in a native’s eye.

Tourists splurge; Travelers save

A basic tourist will be spending money on leisure wherever they head because they travel for comfort but a real traveler would know how to travel for fun and great adventure without spending much—these are skills they have learned from roaming around different countries and immersing to diverse way of life.

  • Whether you’re participating in the annual gift exchange in your office, or you’re just thinking of giving a gift to your favourite colleague, you’re probably facing the question of: “What should I get this person for Christmas?” While gift-giving is just normal during the holiday season, doing it at work can be quite tricky. You surely don’t want to go over the top with your gift, but you don’t also want to come across as someone stingy. Luckily, you no longer need to feel stressed out in choosing your gifts with these office gift-giving tips in mind.

    1. Set a Price Limit. Define the parameters of what’s to be expected in your gift-giving activity by setting a spending cap for your gifts. This will give everyone a guideline on what gifts they can give, and make the gift selection process a little bit easier. Setting a price range for your exchange gifts will also eliminate the inequality in gift giving, which could possibly cause bad feelings or jealousy among the workmates.


    1. Perform Some Sleuthing. Surprise your co-worker with a gift that you know he or she’ll like, by performing some investigative work first. Learn about their hobbies, interests, likes and dislikes. You can start your investigation by looking through their desk areas, since you’ll likely know one’s personality through thedecorations they put in their desks. If you want, you can also ask that person to have a lunch with you andthen learn more about them. With this, you’ll be able to accomplish your goal and make a new ally in your office.

    1. Avoid Giving Intimate Items as Gifts. As you start tailoring your gift options with the person’s likes, avoid picking items that are too personal. Steer clear from cosmetics, roses, lingerie or any intimate apparel and stick with career- or office-related gifts and cards instead.

     

    1. Pool Your Spending Power. If there’s one person, such as a coach or boss, whom everyone in the office wants to purchase a gift for, then consider chipping in for a budget and giving a group gift. Not only will your spending power go farther, you won’t also look like you’re trying to win favour with that particular person.

     

    1. Always Say ‘Thank You’. Regardless of who gives you a gift or what gift you receive, make sure that you thank that person. If possible, do take some time and send a holiday card or a handwritten note to that person as a sign of your gratitude for the gift.

    Doing an office gift exchange can be a great way to get into the holiday spirit. By following the aforementioned tips, you’ll surely be able to foster new relationships, while keeping your workplace merry and bright.
