I’m not really into traveling, probably because I came from a middle class family. Even though both my parents are working, most of their income went to basic necessities: food, shelter, clothing and education. Traveling was a “luxury” for us at that time – and I still look at it that way now.
I remember a friend, Emmie, who comes from a well-off family. Her dad used to work in a prestigious law firm and her mother on the other hand kept herself busy with her chain of stores. As a way to bond as a family, they would usually travel during summer to another state and even abroad.
Emmie said that without someone from a Russian translation agency to provide them with Russian translations, they might be lost or would have a hard time going from place to place so her parents hired a translator.
Can you imagine that? For us, thinking of the travel expenses are already overwhelming. Just the plane tickets, hotels and accommodations would already leave a hole in our pockets – to pay for some Russian translation service will be too much.
Oh well, if I can afford it, I probably would have loved traveling worldwide too but for now, there are other practical things that I should consider and prepare for.
