Any individual clarify journey to me?


I’ve visited 14 totally different international locations out of the 30 or so developed international locations on the planet. From my superficial touristic view, I’ve famous that in all these international locations, individuals earn cash at day jobs, spend it on stuff, and usually lead predictable lives. The distinction between international locations is a lot smaller than the distinction between people. From this I’ve concluded that journey just isn’t price it, a minimum of on the subject of going to different developed international locations.

I’ve lived in three totally different international locations, all a few of the richest international locations on the planet. This has allowed me to realize a sure outdoors perspective on particular cultures, a minimum of the rich ones, and traditions that may not be gained from tourism. Cultures ARE barely totally different. Some are reserved. Some are civilized. Some are ethical. Some are pleasant. Some are lazy. Some are hamfisted. Some are hardworking. Identical to individuals.

Nonetheless, on the entire, nationwide cultures are way more comparable than individuals. In case you are a carpenter, you’ll find you’ve extra in widespread with different carpenters no matter their nationality than you do with their neighbor. There, I simply saved you numerous journey time 🙂 — nonetheless, maybe this must be skilled to be absolutely realized. I nonetheless run into individuals who needs to be sensible sufficient to comprehend that their nation just isn’t the very best as a result of its individuals are someway chosen.

If you wish to be taught one thing about individuals, I recommend you speak to your neighbor fairly than somebody from one other nation.

Maybe my perspective is clouded by being concentrated in developed international locations. Nonetheless, that is the place most tourism go wherever, so why are individuals going?

I do know folks that purchase the tour guides and plan out which landmarks to see. I word that almost all locals by no means go to these landmarks. This implies to me that the landmarks are irrelevant to the tradition regardless of being promoted as being the important a part of the tradition. Why do individuals go to see the views in the event that they don’t care concerning the views the place they stay?

Generally it’s concerning the procuring, however critically. World commerce means that you would be able to now purchase the identical restricted variety of items everywhere in the world. Why go to Paris, when you should buy the identical issues down on the nook retailer. Equally, typically, it’s concerning the meals. However actually, I don’t must go to Greece to eat at a Greek restaurant. Sure, possibly it’s not the identical, but it surely’s fairly rattling shut.

Generally individuals journey to get away from all of it? My query then is, what are you operating away from? And why are you operating? I’ve by no means felt a must get away from my regular life that could possibly be cured by a one week getaway.

It was that journey meant one thing. Like an expedition you’d work to go someplace. These days, you simply hop into an airplane and 12 hours you’re abroad on the opposite facet of the world that’s virtually an identical to your personal. I think that is simply “consumption of locations” just like consuming meals or issues. Is fashionable tourism simply one more client expertise?

Have you ever ever thought-about touring slowly? Shifting from metropolis to metropolis till you get to the vacation spot? I feel crusing is an attention-grabbing solution to journey slowly. I submit that you don’t actually know a spot until you’ve labored a job there, opened a checking account, and lived as a local fairly than simply briefly handed by whereas taking photos. Dwelling overseas makes for extra private development than flying round in a tincan as a vacationer. When you have some helpful abilities, you may even journey free of charge and receives a commission for it. (Till I stop my profession, I’ve by no means paid for a aircraft ticket with my very own cash.)

That’s how I see it; I understand that I could be lacking just a few genes, so please enlighten me why journey is so fashionable?
