Is traveling a waste of time? You decide….
- It’s obsolete. In the “olden” days, you had to travel to see amazing sights. Now, you can just turn on the TV and see the pyramids of Giza, the underwater world of the Great Barrier Reef, and the remote sandy beaches of the Seychelles. Nowadays you don’t have to worry about getting sand wedgies or windburn.
- It’s expensive. The money you spend on flights, hotels, visiting new cultures, scoffing down delectable – and occasionally detestable – food, gawking at sights others only see on National Geographic, trying hair-raising activities
3. It’s dangerous. You just never know when a tsunami or earthquake might hit. Or a blizzard. Or get hit by a mad taxi driver. What? These could happen where you live? Well, then…. you’d better just stay in the house to be on the safe side!
4. It’s uncomfortable. Those long flights, jet lag, airport delays, Montezuma’s revenge, flea bites, sore feet, sun burn, cold weather, poor bathrooms. Is it worth the hassle just to venture off the beaten path and experience something totally new and exhilarating?
5. It’s indecipherable. Good grief, what if someone speaks to you in their native tongue, instead of your English? What should you do… pantomime? Run away? Scold them.
6. It’s addictive. You might want to travel some more. You might even start planning your next trip while on the current trip. You might plan several trips out. You might try to get your friends and family hooked, shame on you. People will start to say you’re obsessed.
It’s redundant. No matter where you go or how exciting a time you had, you have to go back home, right? Why bother going at all?
‘Nuf said. What are you waiting for? Get your wanderlust on! It will refresh and give you a whole new outlook to bring back home. No cure necessary. Or desired.
