Change in Travel

Jump to last reply

Most people used to enjoy travel, there was a sense of adventure, of fun, of discovery.

Now travel has taken on the false sense of sophistication that accompanies wine snobs. The words must be right and pleasure must be confined to self-imposed limitations.

Now the language must be right, the itinerary must be correct, which hotels, which restaurants, as if people were going to be given a grade when they returned.

This is evidenced by the questions and the trip reports. Questions that seem tentative, not because they are inexperienced but in fear of being seen as inexperienced. And 99% of the trip reports sound like they are going to the accounting department for reimbursement rather than a sense of adventure, fun, discovery.

It is indicative of how business works intrudes on people's lives and people are afraid of making a mistake or caring what others think
