How scared are you of being penniless? how important is money for you as a traveller? Now a days web is ripe with stories of people who claim that “money is not necessary for travelling but the will power to do so” Do you think so? If one travels without money, how do you pay your meals? ( forget about flights) Don’t you have to think twice or hundred times to how would you go from point A to point B because only comfortable and convenient way is expensive? or is it okay to be dependent of mercy of people? What would you think of somebody doing the same? beggar? That’s not so nice I guess!!
In conversation with another backpacker it came out that he was being served a free pizza by known cafe of us and for some reason and he was damn happy about it. He could not stop grinning and I asked, him being a european, it was just a pizza! what’s the big deal man? And he came out emotionally, “You don’t know value of a free pizza for a backpacker of 1.5years”.
Intrigued, I was all ears and he obliged telling me, it is not as it looks like for every person from EU, in fact in many ways this is good time to be in South East Asia at large and India in particular. Cost of living, ratio of quality of life to cost of living, quality of people, society, food. Top of that who does not like a free pizza. 🙂 He kept going on and on for some time. We moved on after that ….
But the thought stuck to my mind and I come out here to ask you, what do you think?!
Delicious Pie I had at friends place in Finland, awesome people made a cheese pie along manny other for me!!
I hear this word more often then not. Bestie or BFF as they like to call sometimes in texting language. People like to do things with their bestie like sleep over or binge drinking, binge watching, a day out with bestie or just sit with each other and have conversation on lengths about everything and anything under and over the sky.
These are wishful thinking which are shown in movies and one wants to do them and sometimes make plan to do them but these happen less often then one wish for especially with growing age and things associated with it, it all dies down. You make plans but they don’t happen and eventually you stop making any plan at all.
This is normal life. Of course but how is it for travellers? Do they have bestie? if yes, how do they keep it touch?
I felt like making a bestie out of them, or may be all of them but they were too shy!
I happen to meet some of people, those I can say, are travelling for many years and I found out they don’t have anything scheduled however a common trend is to meet one’s close people at an interval of a year or so and spend say a fortnight or month with them at a beach location. However a traveller may have their own styles of doing things but most of them have one thing in common which is they have too many of them. Bestie(s). Yes.
People tend to find more like minded people and especial thing about it that these people match at different wave length then earlier ones, hence there is nothing called comparing or finding out the “best” because each one of them connects on different spectrum of mind which feels beautifully complimenting in so many way.
Its like finding so many way to fulfil your grey matter requirement. After all human beings are greedy, so what if for bestie(s). Keep Travelling, Keep finding your besties.
These two words are quite interesting individually and gives birth to heady cocktail when mixed as there numerous possibilities comes on picture when one think of these two together. Travel. Relationship.
We will talk about all the possibilities and to begin with we will put possibilities here. So here you go
Relationship with places
Relationship within your mind & heart

Relationship between travel companion(s)
Relationship with means of travel

Travel & Relationship also bring me to, travelling with relationship(s) and how they evolve with that but that for some other day!
There might be many more which I missed, You are welcome to add them! we will go through each of them in future..!
