I am not a Traveller, I am a Tourist
Traveller, Backpacker, Wanderlust,
I learned all the cool names to look cool about my travelling stories.
The beautiful mountains, The vast oceans, The unbelievable journeys.
I clicked all the perfect pictures in the best poses to look like one of them.
The ones who talk about all the bizarre stories about their visit to some unbelievable place they went to, for their vacation.
The ones who show you the pictures with some mind blowing poses where they are standing at some thousands of feet, looking down at the world.
The ones who tell you about how they just randomly went for the trip and how they hitchhiked and stayed in some cool hostels.
The ones who keep talking about how their life changed because of that trip and how they learned about life.
The ones who defines trips with adventures, thrill and almost dying rides or sports they did on their vacation.
Honestly, I am not one of them.
I am not a traveller, I am a tourist.
I am not random, spontaneous or adventurous.
I like to plan my trips.
I like myself to relax on a trip rather than climbing up a mountain and break my legs in pain, just because #wanderlust .
I like to enjoy the trips in some good hotels, where I can sleep on a good bed, enjoy good food and see some beautiful scenes, shop from some good streets and then go back to sleep in my comfortable and cozy bed.
I don’t mind missing out on that 4 kms of hike to catch the oh-so-lovely sunrise at 4 in the morning.
I don’t mind missing out on those water sports which could almost kill me but hey what’s the fun without dying on a trip.
Well, its not a rant about those wanderlusts, travellers or backpackers.
All I am trying to say is,
The quotes written on your pictures about less money but more travelling is cool,
But seeing those, sitting on my pool side chair, sipping Bloody Mary in a 5 star is savage.
Because I am not a traveller, I am a Tourist
