Why In The World Would Anyone Ever Travel?

Has anyone ever asked you the question… “Where are you going on vacation next”?

And then, it’s followed by something like, “Well I’m just curious, because you travel all the time. I just don’t understand why you’re so into traveling.”

And then, you show the friend your IPhone pictures, and say something like….. “Have you taken any pictures like this”? Or, “Do you even know how amazing the world really is?”

And, your friend just doesn’t ‘get it’.

The friend stares back with a confused look, quickly you flip to more interesting photography, something that might spark a desire to travel.

Rushing to the photos to help convince this person that you’re not ‘crazy’, in general, just crazy about going places.

And then, you find a nice picture of a shark, see friend don’t you like sharks.

“Seriously, sharks are scary, where did you take that picture?”

“At an aquarium”, you reply.

“Isn’t that kind of fake?” They ask.

“Does this look fake?” You answer.

“Is that The Hustler Club… like the real one?”

“Why, yes it is.”

“Did you go there?”

“No, I would never go there but I took a picture.”

And then your friend says, “I want to go there!”

Mission accomplished.

What’s your dream vacation?
