My Travel Lesson:

“You reap the most reward from being flexible!”

What Important Lesson Will You Learn from Traveling?When Lisa Niver was working as a teacher, she couldn’t shake the desire to have more adventures. She wanted to scuba dive. She wanted to move. She wanted to see the world. Energized with hope and hunger, she moved to Club Med Copper Mountain, Colorado to work and ski. Then to the Bahamas to snorkel. Then on a cruise line for seven years, sailing all over the world — and getting paid for it. Then it was Asia, and the list continues.

These days, she films travel segments and has an active YouTube channel about wanderlust, and has grown as a professional and as a person in more ways than she can count. But the greatest lesson being nomadic has taught her? The ‘F’ word — and no, not that one: flexibility. Both with travel plans and with her worldview.

“When I went back to teaching after spending three months in India and three months in Nepal, one day the lights went out. My students were freaking out. We had a long discussion about how in Nepal they only have power for 13 hours a day and that some people do not have hot water or any water in their homes. My students were interested in why there was not 24 hours of power a day,” she says. “It was a great life lesson and we decided we liked the classroom with the lights off and the blinds open.”
