why should travel be planned the way it is today? The itinerary all drawn up, the places to be frequented drawn up with the help fof travel adisories, friends or travel agents and the modeoftravel predetermined.Where is the spirit of adventure which brought great travellers who knew no locallanguage , much less the terrain to territories unknown?Themodern version is known as backpackers. Also budget tourists.they arederided as such.
and what is travel if some surprising twist is not there?i amnot talking of drugs and permissive sex. the sheer pleasureof loafing along thestreets and doing some windowshoppping? I relish it whenever it comesmyway.And many of my friends are decades younger and tey do not take risks.
it s a common sight to find them on arterial roads , referring frantically in a book for the next site to visit.What is the worst that can happen?they may lose themselves. any civilised corner of the world will have afriendly policeman, Bobby as he iscalled in UK. He could show you the way.Besides, you have the whole day ahead of you.
so to all my friends out there, beconducted ,byall means, but allow yourself tobe lost for a few hours or a few days. This is what travelling is aimed at.To lose your way so that perchance THE WAY is revealed to you. good luck!!
