College students, curious and energetic, love traveling; summer and winter vacations provide them with golden opportunities to travel. There are two major modes of travelling--traveling by oneself or traveling in a group organized by travel agencies.
Those two patterns offer different travel experiences, with respective advantages and disadvantages. For the solitary traveler, the greatest advantage is freedom. He is perfectly free to choose his itinerary and plan his schedules, thus he can visit whatever his curiosity leads him to and contemplate over a historical site or a cultural relic for as long as he desires. The trouble is he cannot share his perceptions and excitement with any partners. Moreover, it is time-consuming and difficult to buy train tickets and look for accommodations and in emergency situations an individual traveler is largely helpless. Those problems are non-existent for group travelers because travel agencies take care of everything. Within a group, people who used to be strangers soon become friends. However, the fixed itineraries and tight schedule prevent travelers from satiating their individual curiosities. In addition, tourists are often subjected to forced shopping by tour guides who are more concerned with securing commissions than providing services.
According to UNESCO's Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage (2003), all forms of social customs and habits, folklore, performing arts, rituals, oral traditions, festivals, traditional crafts and various knowledge and practices about nature and universe can be classified as intangible cultural heritages. As a country consisting of a great diversity of ethnic groups and with time-honored history and civilization, China abounds in intangible cultural heritages. Cultural heritages connect modern people with the historical past, allowing them to acquire a cultural and historical identity. Without cultural heritages, we would be rendered absolutely rootless and we would find it hard to cope with challenges at present and in the future.
However, the modernization process poses mounting threats to intangible heritages. Many people have a blind faith in the latest electronic devices. It is also pathetic to see elderly people in possession of such legacies pass away without transmitting them to the younger generation. Faced with those challenges, we should both preserve and renovate our ancestral heritages so that we can help contribute to the cultural diversity of the world and return to our spiritual homeland in this age of impersonal science and technology.
My solution to these two imperfect modes of traveling is to travel with friends or classmates. This pattern incorporates most of their advantages while avoiding all their disadvantages. I am convinced this is the best and most sensible form of traveling which everybody should adopt.

Keeping the kids busy in the summer isn't always easy, but there may be some fun to be had in your own backyard that you've forgotten about. Maybe there are things you did for hours when you were young, but haven't shared those same experiences with your own children.
Pack up the kids and go for a summer trek! This is what childhood memories are all about, and whether it's a day trip, a weekend jaunt or a full two weeks' planned vacation, there need not be a full-fledged agenda. Pick a destination and keep things simple, allowing for stops wherever you feel called to stop and for some relaxed family time instead of a hectic, destination-oriented rush.
Some ideas for having a fun and memorable vacation with your family include:
- Look local: We all have tourist attractions surrounding us that we rarely visit. Try looking at your local attractions with new eyes. Perhaps a trip to the beach all the tourists love would be a perfect outing: have some hotdogs, splash in the water, rent jetskis, go parasailing. If you're in a big city, maybe a ride on the subway and go to a museum, a festival, or just see the city sights (you take them for granted, but they might be exciting to your kids!).
- Take a drive along a coast or out into the country. Pack some great snacks and drinks, and maybe some games, and just go. Stop and climb trees, pick flowers, walk in fields, dip your toes into ponds...these timeless moments are precious and we forget to create them when our schedules are hectic. Talk to your kids about what's going on in their lives and just listen...the more they feel heard, the more they will also want to listen to your stories of 'way back when.' This family storytelling is a human tradition, and helps us keep close as a family unit. Kids love to know where they came from and how things evolved to the point where they are now, even if they don't appreciate that until they are older.
Many local parks and attractions cost little or no money, and offer a change in scenery for your kids, especially important if they spend a little too much time on the computer or video game console. Even simple activities like playing catch, frisbee or bike riding are old-fashioned, great ways to get some exercise, fresh air and quality family time. Enjoy!
