I have been travelling with a vengeance every weekend and these days all I talk and do is always about travel & places & photography. So, I just started chatting with a friend and one of the first conversations I ever had with her started off with her asking me about my ”travel philosophy”. Now, I didn’t quite have a profound philosophy to impress or influence anyone, but here’s the chat log of the conversation (posting with permission, don’t worry) -
cd: alright, tell me more about your travel philosophyme: my philosophy… umm… God made the physical map of the world, and man made the political map. i guess i hv to travel across borders to see the beautiful world… but i am a patriot at heart (although i dont totally belv in the concept of countries) .. and so to better represent myself as an indian in the future on my rtw trips… i am travelling all over india (or at least southern & central) this yearcd: coolme: and i travel for multiple reasons…1. to meet & deal with “the common man”… away from the wannabe american life tht most of the urban ppl live…
2. to just be outdoors… life in hyd & particularly at work is very indoors. lil things amaze me and thrill me… like a sunset… i am in love with the colours of the sky during sunset/sunrise times3. photography….i am keen and self-taught… n i hv ample time to practice on various monuments, etc. & of course for the cheap touristy thrills of clicking… “i was here” kind of photographs…cd: hehme: what about youcd: the real deal is, i once read a quote by st.augustine. i quote, “the world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page”now, that caught my fancysince then i have wanted to travel
