I am an aspiring globe trekker, or you can call me a globe trekker wannabe! I’ve visited only 16 countries, so to acquire the title of “Globe Trekker”, I most certainly have a lot more traveling to do.
My travels thus far have taken me primarily to Europe, Mideast, South America, Africa, and the Caribbean. I travel to specific places for specific reasons, usually with some historical significance. All of my trips were interesting and memorable, and some were even adventurous.
There are numerous blogs dedicated to traveling and it is my goal to join the other bloggers to add my travel stories. If you are new to travel, hopefully, I can impart some information to you based on my experiences. If you are an experienced traveler, I welcome your stories as I continue my globe trekking.
People travel for various reasons, mostly for pleasure or business. If you travel for business, you get paid, so that should be pleasurable too. Overcrowded tourist sites and cities can erode your pleasure as well as your finances rapidly. However, I have a few ideas on how to keep this erosion from happening!
I believe that if you seek true pleasurable travel you need a quest. Your quest will take you on journeys to strange places, many of them off the beaten path or the road less traveled. Most of my travels started with a quest, usually ignited by a simple experience. Sometimes your quest will be easy to find, and your travel destination clearly defined. However, at times you will have to do some exploring. You may encounter language barriers, travel glitches, and even safety issues – but with proper preparation, you will certainly enjoy yourself and have a few adventures on the way!
I still have many quests in mind and several countries to visit, so we may run into each other!
