Any individual clarify journey to me?

I’ve visited 14 completely different international locations out of the 30 or so developed international locations on this planet. From my superficial touristic view, I’ve famous that in all these international locations, folks 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 is just not value it, not less than in terms of going to different developed international locations.

I’ve lived in three completely different international locations, all a number of the richest international locations on this planet. This has allowed me to realize a sure exterior perspective on particular cultures, not less than the rich ones, and traditions that may not be gained from tourism. Cultures ARE barely completely different. Some are reserved. Some are civilized. Some are ethical. Some are pleasant. Some are lazy. Some are hamfisted. Some are hardworking. Similar to folks.

Nonetheless, on the entire, nationwide cultures are way more comparable than folks. If you’re a carpenter, you will see you’ve got extra in widespread with different carpenters no matter their nationality than you do with their neighbor. There, I simply saved you a whole lot of journey time — nevertheless, maybe this needs to be skilled to be totally realized. I nonetheless run into individuals who needs to be sensible sufficient to understand that their nation is just not the very best as a result of its persons are by some means chosen.

If you wish to be taught one thing about folks, I counsel you discuss to your neighbor slightly 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 anyplace, so why are folks going?

I do know those who 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 folks go to see the views in the event that they don’t care concerning the views the place they dwell?

Typically it’s concerning the procuring, however significantly. World commerce means which you can now purchase the identical restricted variety of items all around the world. Why go to Paris, when you should purchase the identical issues down on the nook retailer. Equally, typically, it’s concerning the meals. However actually, I don’t have to go to Greece to eat at a Greek restaurant. Sure, possibly it’s not the identical, however it’s fairly rattling shut.

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

It was once 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 overseas 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 yet 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 option to journey slowly. I submit that you don’t actually know a spot until you’ve got labored a job there, opened a checking account, and lived as a local slightly than simply briefly handed via whereas taking footage. Dwelling overseas makes for extra private development than flying round in a tincan as a vacationer. When you have some helpful expertise, you may even journey at no cost and receives a commission for it. (Till I give up my profession, I’ve by no means paid for a airplane ticket with my very own cash.)

That’s how I see it; I notice that I is likely to be lacking just a few genes, so please enlighten me why journey is so widespread?
