Travel Myths Debunked by a backpacker

I started travelling to different places the minute I got done with college. Over the years I have listened to people who have a dream to travel but never travel because they spout these claims that they think are facts. If anything these claims are absolute myths, and if you do the littlest of research, you’ll find that these myths can easily be debunked. I am writing this article in complete frustration because there is nothing like travelling and there are obstacles to do it but those can easily be overcome, and the reasons that are often cited are stupid myths.

  1. Travel is expensive

Well in essence travel can be costly, if you let it be. People misconstrue vacationing with travelling. The two can either go hand in hand or can be poles apart. If you wish to travel to a new place, to explore the local culture, you can get by with a minimal budget. But if you wish to visit the same place and book a resort for your stay and eat the finest of food, then yeah you’re going to be burning a lot of money. I had the pleasant experience of backpacking across Europe with a travel fund that I built over a year with an average paying job. I come back and find out that my colleague was in Spain the same time as me, but she had spent 10 times more than me because she ended up taking a wine tour that was suggested by the hotel that she was staying in; she was furious when I told her that I took the same wine tour for a fraction of the price because I was on good terms with the local guide who I had met at a farmer’s market. The point that I am trying to make is that travelling isn’t expensive but vacationing is. You have to make that all-important choice; whether you wish to be a tourist or a traveller.

  1. Stranger Things

There are a number of platforms where people put up couches and rooms up for rent for travellers. More often than not these are the best deals around. The website interface is top notch, and these people who list rentals are often vetted, so it is not as dangerous as people make it out to be. Crime rates have greatly decreased, but people still shy away from using these services and then put the blame on travelling for their increased costs.

Gardening myths debunked

gardening

That Gardner who is working across the street is doing wonders, and you want to ask him for some advice. You listen to his tips, and then you try executing them but soon you begin to realise that these methods are dated and old. If you ask that same gardener about where he learnt his trade from, we are betting that he says that his mum or grandma passed on the wisdom. These methods that gardeners use are very out-dated and don’t hold up to scientific research whatsoever. Here in this article, we look at some of the most common myths you will come across when it comes to gardening.

  1. The potassium myth

Banana has a high level of potassium in them, and that is one of the reasons why athletes prefer to eat one after a long day in the field. There is a gardening myth that if you put a banana peel in the soil, the soil will be enriched by potassium and your plants will grow quicker. If anything, the banana decreases the rate at which other plants grow because the micro-organisms that break down compounds in the soil, use up a lot of the nitrogen to break down the banana peel. The drawbacks outweigh the benefit of the banana peel.

  1. Cactus doesn’t need water

It is true that drought-resistant plant such as cacti tends to require less water, but that doesn’t mean that you can neglect your drought-resistant plants altogether. The reason that they survive in the wilderness is because of their well-developed roots get water from the depths of the ground; so if you have a plant that is just starting to grow, make sure you water it once in three days at the most.

  1. The pesticide myth

People think that everything that is synthetic is bad for the soil and everyone involved, but in reality, there are chemical components in organic substances that greatly affect the soil and well-being of humans and animals. Just because it says “organic” or “all natural”, doesn’t mean it is safer than synthetic pesticides. When choosing a pesticide, weigh up the pros and cons of each option. In case, the synthetic pesticide actually makes more sense for usage, then go ahead and use it, because being safe trumps being a nature hero who succumbs to pesticide poisoning.

We suggest that you rely on science and not on the word of mouth when it comes to gardening.
