We all have regrets about things we could have or should have done. Most of us have a tendency to bury those regrets deeply in a drawer seldom accessed to avoid feeling that icky feeling that you had a chance to do something, and didn’t do it. What if you turned that paradigm upside down? Embracing regret is the best way to get motivated to do something. And it’s never too late.

Once known as Paradisus Iudaeorum (Latin for “Paradise of the Jews”), Poland was home to the largest Jewish community in the world. 1772, however, brought The First Partition of Poland, religious conflicts, and the persecution of Jews.
Some travelers are adventurous spirits who prefer exploring new areas alone. They love privacy and don’t like to share a new experience with foreigners who happen to be at the same place and time. On the other hand, there are those who don’t like planning or navigating on their own throughout new places, so they let others do all the planning and organization.
