Travel - I Hate It
 
# 1 : Wednesday 3-3-2010 @ 23:07
 
 
There are only a few places I would like to go to now and that is Berlin, The Antarctic, and space that is if space tourism ever takes off. So why do people seem obsessed with travel, why is it a lot of peoples ambition to travel more. So what do you get out of travel and what does travelling mean to you and what does it do for you.

I love travel. I've just found the funkiest hotel in Amsterdam. It's like the kind of place you could imagine Jean Genet staying in.

Everyone's different, aren't they?
People travel for different reasons, to go somewhere, to get away from something, to find something, to find themselves, to discover, to forget, to explore.

Wanderlust is such a lovely feeling. Isn't that just a nice sounding word... wanderlust

I'm never happier than when I'm travelling, I've had such good times and I look forward to many more. I'm always planning adventures in my head, I shall be embarking on a mini one in a few weeks. Dreaming of far away lands keeps me going.

As cliche as it may sound I love meeting people from all over the world, learning about other cultures, trying new things and foods, just generally seeing the many things this world has to offer!
There is much to see and do.... I want it all!

But its not a wonderlust anymore, its all industrialised and trailed its hardly exploring because you basically know what to expect and what you will see. There are few places left on Earth with soul, parts of Africa, South America, the Antarctic and even they are wired linked and awaiting your explorer dollar.

I'm generally happy with a nice beach, sunny weather, a book and my iPod. I don't go for long haul travel. It's never really interested me, but it may be something I consider doing in the years ahead.

Berlin- you will savour, relish and have such a great time.

I'm obsessed with travel because of so many things but here goes.
~There are so many people to meet, so many experiences to have and to hear about, so many place to see, so many lives/people/place to love and enjoy and really, this life is so short that when we travel we begin to recognise how every moment actually is precious and every second had is never to be had again so we'd better make the most of it or 'realise' it at least.

Travelling provides continuous 'moments of clarity' so that we can see life for the wonder it is.

Oh come on - that's just silly.

I travel to see new things, meet new people, experience new cultures, eat new food and learn new ideas. When you're bored with travel you're bored with life.

I enjoy travelling and - I know it's a bit of a cliche - it broadens the mind and your horizons. I try to avoid the over touristy hot spots if possible. The world is out there to be experienced and seen.

Travel isn't for everyone though - some people really dislike different customs, foods and climates.

Often, the journey is better than the destination.

as Butters alluded to perhaps it is about new places to have a great f**k with a random hottie. For some, moving from the George to Panti Bar is like visiting another country...

But travel has been an ambition of people since humanity began.

The first thing I get out of travel is peace of mind. A different setting, a different routine: it can take your mind off daily woes. I'm never so happy or relaxed as when I'm on the move. It refreshes, gives me a chance to learn radically new things, bolsters my imagination, gives me a fresh appreciation of beauty, reminds me of the astonishing diversity of humanity . . . that's a big thing, to feel part of our planet, our crazy world, this thing that we scarper about on. To be a citizen of the world and feel so tiny and awed.
