Discovering the History of Your Faith
Planning a tour may be an exciting activity for you. Exploring the best tourist spots all over the world is your goal as a traveler. If you are a fan of the land and its structures, you might want to visit countries with great architectural buildings. Art enthusiasts may prefer going to countries with known painters and sculptors. Those who are into water forms may choose to visit different beaches, lakes, and falls.
But there are also faith devotees who may most likely explore the sites where their religion began. An example is going on an LDS Holy Land tour. If you are interested in joining your group of LDS disciples, you may consider this special pursuit of learning about the history and the places in the Holy Land. This tour may have all the advantages for travelers, especially the food, place to stay, and transportation. Going to this country may take a lot of preparation. Here are some tips for packing before taking this trip:
Expect that you will be tired from the plane travel to the visits to historical sites. Be prepared by doing some training or going to the gym. Try to jog in the morning or at night to help you cope up with the amount of sweat and energy that you may need to exert while on the trip. It is an advantage to have a healthy body and lifestyle to manage the long hours of walking and climbing the stairs. Be ready for physical activity.
Prepare light clothes, hats, sunglasses, walking shoes, and sunscreen lotion. This is a hot country, with the sun’s heat directly on your skin. To prevent you from sweating heavily, wear only light-colored clothes. Still, make sure to choose what to dress depending on where you are going.
It is better to ask your tour guide. There may be some places that may require clothes that are not too revealing. Bring your most comfortable shoes such as your rubber shoes. Use sunglasses and a hat to protect you from the extreme heat. Lastly, do not ever forget to wear and keep your sunscreen with you.
If you can bring your own spiritual book, you may use it while on the trip. As you explore the places where the first believers lived in, you may get to think about your own faith and understanding. Revisit your guide and reflect well. This can help you get to know yourself better, your faith, and your religion. You may also prepare a map to help you recognize and appreciate the beautiful structures and sites in the Holy Land. Keep this with you along the way.
This kind of journey can help you and your fellow faith believers grasp the concrete concept of your beliefs. Be open to the time for contemplation as it extends and makes you think deeper about yourself and your doctrine. Be guided with the teachings of your religion and the advice of the people with you.
