Traveling is more fun if you question your “beliefs”.

XNUMX years living in Mexico,

“Showing the true face of Mexico to the world!'

with the motto

I'm Kou Iwasaki, a government-certified tour guide and driver for trips to Mexico.

I am writing from Mexico today.


Today's content may be for people in their XNUMXs and XNUMXs. (guess)

If you're not interested, please check back tomorrow.

What is the one constant in your life?




If you say so,

Things that don't change


"do not have".


now in front of me

Even a beautiful bride

I am definitely getting older by the day. (LOL)


Even my right hand, which had never had a problem before,

Changes are definitely happening inside, which you can't see,

Now there is a kind of "problem". (burn)


The white roses in the vase that were beautiful until yesterday,

Today it was miserably yellowed. (Sorrow)


“Friends” who were close until two years ago,

He stole money from me and disappeared. (dumb)




All things are always changing.

And it is a “change” that we humans cannot stop.


On the other hand,

aboutIf you try to make a change yourself,

More or lessI'm scaredright. (bitter smile)


For example,


When you quit your office job and start your own business.

When you voluntarily withdraw from university.

When confessing to someone you love,

And vice versa. (pain)

When you meet a customer for the first time,


(☝☝☝This is all me. I'm scared all the time lol)


Even if it's not that big of a deal,

When trying new dishes,

When buying a new brand of sake,

Or when you meet someone you don't know,

I think everyone has had the experience of being “frightened” at least once.


As many of you may know,

Most of the reasons are

[Lukewarm water]

It's because I don't want to go out.

I don't want to go out and feel cold.


"There may be something better out there."


Despite that.

a kind ofhuman defense instinctIs it?


But I think


"What does that good environment you are in now mean to you?"




The same can be said for travel.

I know Hawaii is beautiful.

I know Paris is cool.

I know that Teotihuacan is famous.


that's why, going there means

When traveling, it's usually in the comfort zone.


"It's on TV and in guidebooks,

Everyone goes there and it's famous,

As long as I go there, I won't be too far off."


In the condition to say.


For example, Mexico


“I really want to try salsa dancing!”

"I don't understand Spanish, but I want to cook with the locals!"

"Olmec is far away from the famous pyramids, but I want to go there!"




deviating from the norm,

This is the “change” in traveling to Mexico.


So I

"Fear" caused by "change" in your trip to Mexico,

I would like to minimize

I write [Kiote Tsushin] almost every day.


everyone is,


Are you a lukewarm water person?

Or are you someone who enjoys change?


suffocating place

Either way is fine (laughs).

The important thing is

Don't be swept away by the overflowing information around you,

decide for yourself.


I finally became the latter. (Joy!)


Things and people that are commonplace in everyday life,

Anything is fine,

If you take a glance at it at random times,

The environment in which I am now

"Quite closed"

I can feel it.

(in my case)


Images created by the media or others,

Sometimes you are unconsciously locking yourself up.

In fact, XNUMX% of humans live unconsciously.


That kind of thing broke with a bang,

When I saw a world I had never imagined before,

For the first time, it becomes a real experience and accumulates in yourself,

I think


It doesn't have to be a trip to Mexico.

in everyday life,

"Because it's like this"

"Because that's what they say"

"Because you said so"

"Because that's how it is"

"That's not true."


What is thought.


all this"belief"で す(Lol)



While smiling at neighbors and friends,


"I don't know what to do~"

If there are people who are spending their time feeling that,

If you doubt and destroy such "belief",

You might find something interesting (laughs).
