If you’re here, I hope you read my previous (and first) article on this up-and-coming blog called Art Kills. If you haven’t, shame on you. (Just kidding please don’t leave me.)
Jokes aside, though.
For my second post, I would like to focus on a topic that, although it might be on everyone’s mouth, I still feel everyone tackles superficially. And that is, travel.
Personally, I love traveling, and the pandemic hasn’t stopped me from indulging in this activity. Actually, I started traveling–like, traveling my way–soon before the pandemic began, and I am still managing as best as I can.
However, I don’t want to make it about me. I want to make it about you. Yes, you. I want to focus on how you can become a more culturally aware, adventurous traveler.
You see, on some Facebook groups I’m in, I feel like there are two popular types of travelers: the full-time traveler, someone that has been to 56 countries and is constantly flexing how much they travel, and the occasional traveler, who might perhaps go on vacation once a year and use that time to lay on a beach and do nothing all day.
I’m here to change that.
I would like to give a voice to people that are exactly in-between: people that genuinely enjoy traveling as a passion and a hobby, that find the time and money to travel, but for whom it is not a full-time activity.
For instance, I have never traveled–as in visited different places one after the other–for more than a month-ish in a row, but I am currently planning a few trips for 2022, either big or small, to keep myself moving.
If you’re like me and are tired of these digital nomads flexing their lifestyle, then we’re on the same page.
To wrap this up, here’s a picture of me not so long ago in Antalya, Turkey, very close to the stunning Düden Waterfalls:
