Someone who’s been reading my blog, has suggested to slightly change the format of my posts in a way that who’s reading is more involved.
First and foremost, thanks Giò, if you are reading this you know that I’m talking about you and that I have really taken in consideration your feedbacks.
Second, what am I going to change in order to make it more interactive?
Here we go …
Instead of only me giving my point of view, I will also ask questions inviting readers to share their thoughts, experience and point of view in the comment section.
Let’s get the party started then !!!
-Question number one:
Do you prefer traveling with a backpack or a trolley?
My answer is Backpack, although they can be more tiring compared to trolleys, I find them more comfortable if you are traveling in “Adventure Mode” (where nothing is planned) so lots of different transport and a lot of walking.
I also think that trolleys are really annoying because they take way too much space on a walkway, almost the same space as if two people are walking side by side.
Last but not least, on a personal note, Backpacks are now days the icon and symbol of the “traveller”. The so called “Backpackers” generation, quite frankly never heard of “Trolleyers” or anything like that.
Question number two:
Do you plan everything, or do you go with the flow?
My answer is that generally speaking I don’t like planning too much because it takes away the joy of discovering. Over planning can also lead to building up in our mind too many expectations and eventually disappointments. Therefore the less you know the better.
Going with the flow, it can also be a risky business if you have limited time you might end up wasting time that you could have spent to reach your destination.
What’s my style then?
My way of traveling is a middle ground between the two. I usually make a list of places that I would love to see and how you can get there. Once I am on site I follow the flow, leaving room for recommendation.
I am also one of those who’s not up to see everything that there is to see, I value more human’s interaction therefore sometimes it takes me longer to get somewhere.
So Just to sum up, I know that I want to see (A) and (B) coming from (C) but I don’t know how I am going to get from (C) to (A) and then (B), I go with the flow.
I am writing this post in Italy and I will publish it in India.
I know that I want to do New Delhi down to Varanasi with stops in between, but I have no idea of how am I going to do that. I’m giving myself 3 weeks to do 900 KMs and then hit Nepal. Again, I know I would love to do the Annapurna Circuit but now clues of how to do it.
So this is me, now it’s our turn to tell
Backpack or trolley?
Planning or adventure?
Looking forward to read your comments, See you soon !!!
