This has to be a prerequisite for success navigating and enjoying international intercultural experience and relations. Without curiosity and a genuine interest in other people and places then it’s all rather superficial.
Curiosity, empathy, adaptability will all stem from being inquisitive, asking questions and observing. All this makes you ready for success in whatever arena you find yourself in.So observe all around you, use your eyes ears and nose, and be ready to askabout what you see hear, smell and taste. Learn how to do this in the language of the country you’re visiting and of the people you’re with.
Show an interest, share the experience!
