What Frequent Travelers Do Not Like About Traveling
Perpetual travel and undying regular existence are two extreme ends of existence, and you may love or hate either of them. Just like the job of a banker may become too boring, so can be the case with travel. When vacationing becomes a job even by the virtue of your choice, it becomes mundane. That is when travelers start hating too much of staying abroad. That is when they take a sabbatical from journeying around and blogging, and then resume fulltime traveling. Still, there are a few reasons that every traveler swears by and prays never to face them. The irony of the matter is that these unpleasant experiences make great travel stories and the travelers miss them as well when they are on a leave from vacationing. Sounds weird right? Let us see why?
Being a foreigner
When you are a foreigner, and visibly so, in any country, you get a lot of attention from the locals. You, being a traveler who doesn’t give a damn about anything, may like to answer the clichéd questions about your family, country, or life. However, when you return to your homeland, you realize that you were a celebrity in someone else’s country. When the locals bombarded you with questions about your day’s goings in their country, they actually wanted to listen to you. And you were being too mean by plugging in your earphones every time you went to the market, weren’t you? And now you obviously miss all that attention.
When you are traveling in a new country or city, you can experiment with new foods. And when you are too tired to experiment, you just like to grab some quick food. The basic Chinese Ramen, a Snickers bar, or a Samosa gives immense gratification when you want anything to go into your stomach and give you those much-needed carbs. And you don’t even have a choice to feel guilty because you have to eat something to keep your energy levels up.
On the other hand, when you are at home, you feel immensely guilty to eat anything that will add up additional weight to your body. You know that you should eat healthy food and hit the gym, yet you cannot help but hate it. And then you start missing that life of a wanderer who could stuff the stomach with junk, shamelessly.
When you are out there for weeks and months, you barely pay attention to your looks, regardless the gender. It is no hidden fact that even men require a dozen cosmetics and toiletries to look handsome, just like the girls do. However, traveling on a budget does not let you have access to fancy clothes, warm water, laundry, and salons. No one even bothers if you look bad, even if it is your good-hair day. And when you are in your home country, you have everything you need in your huge wardrobe. You can choose and pick from dozens of clothes in your cupboard, wear shoes of your choice and comfort, and spend a lot of time in grooming yourself.
The sad part is that you have to do all those things to keep up your outward appearance even when you don’t want to. You know that it consumes so much time to dress up every morning. Back there when you were in India, you could drive the Self-Drive Cars in Bangalore or any other fancy city in your dingiest of clothes without anyone blinking an eye at you. Life would have been so much simpler if you could look ugly all the time and eat unhealthy every day. Don’t you think it’s time to pack your bags again?
