Why do normies love to travel? every normie i talk to goes on about it
>you need to travel bro trust me just do it
>i couldn't give a shit about seeing the world desu
WHAT THE FUCK IS IT ABOUT TRAVLING THAT MAKES IT APPEALING I DONT GET IT?
Your brain loves new experiences, that's a fact. Travelling provides this. New place, new people, new cultures, new locations, new routine, new experience, new food, new drinks, new new new.
It feeds the addiction of the brain and breaks away from the monotony that can drive a person insane.
>New place, new people, new cultures, new locations, new routine, new experience, new food, new drinks, new new new
Its all superficial new new new who gives a shit your going to go back home to the same life i have.
>monotony that can drive a person insane
How about stay home and improve your life so its not monotonous?
Do you not buy new video games when they come out? Look at different porn? Eat different food? Buy the latest gadgets Its all superficial. Who gives a shit? they do. Plus they have their fond memories to last them.
They do improve their lives. Travelling is part of that improvement. Its fun, expands your horizons, you learn new things about the world you live in. More often than not its great experience which is why travelling is such a huge industry.
Best go travelling why you are young and your knees still work. Not everyone wants to live life as a spectator looking through the window.
>expands your horizons, you learn new things about the world you live in
Yeh getting drunk and taking a picture of a mountain or some building oh and take selfies!
Sounds like a great way to improve your life!
>grow up in remote rural area under neglect
>going to the mall is an overwhelming experience
That's one small aspect of travelling yes, its called having fun. Yes when you expand your horizons, learn new things your life improves. Some make new friends while travelling, some even find the love of their life. Others just have fun and make great memories.
You can feel how different a place is. You can feel how far away from home you are. Novel experiences are what stimulate your spiritual growth as a human being. Every time I've traveled I've learned more about the world and about myself than I would've in months back home. For all the reading I've done, actually going somewhere gives you a deeper, more innate understanding of how things actually work. And adapting to all the inevitable problems of travelling makes you so much more competent as a person, the change is drastic. I come back from travelling feeling like I can conquer everything about my original life situation.
And, of course, it's nice to see beautiful things and meet interesting people with new habits and accents and manners.
hush child, we all make excuses for not facing our fears. Going outside isn't that bad. You may get a sunburn from having been inside for so long but I assure you it will be worth it.
I fucking hate traveling. I went to a couple South American countries the last time I traveled, it was shit, and I was even in the fancy tourist districts. There's better shit to do in nicer places 20 mins from my house. All traveling does is exploit the "grass is always greener" mentality. It's for stupid people who can't appreciate what they already have.
They take selfies of them at the Eiffel Tower, or whatever the regional equivalent of that is, then go home. They don't experience the culture, or explore the lands, or any of that shit. You're a normie faggot if you buy into the traveling meme
>They don't experience the culture, or explore the lands, or any of that shit
i just can't take you seriously when you talk out of your ass. You think traveling is all about selfies. Lets face it you're basically basic.
prove me wrong, faggot
What's the point of traveling?
>to "experience new things"
You might try talking to your neighbors, or doing something different in the area you already live in. New shit isn't 1000 miles away, it's probably right next to you, you're just too much of a vapid cunt to notice. There's probably people from the country you're going to fly to within walking distance.
But that's the thing, people who "love to travel" are not interested in broadening their horizons. They just like the social accolades that come with having been a certain place.
>people who "love to travel"
so almost everyone, in other words? if you can afford it, and have people to travel with, there's literally no downside. it can be a bit shitty if you're on your own, but traveling with friends is always fun.
You're probably american, though, so i understand it's much more difficult to affordably go abroad to interesting places
Translation: ooo look at all of these people travelling the world while I live a pitiful existence of interacting with a machine on a daily basis. When was the last time you had a discussion irl? Lemme guess, you can't remember because you're a shut-in dweeb.
Stop being daft on purpose, the allure of spending money, going on a plane to a foreign country is more appealing than talking to your neighbour or exploring the local attraction, which btw they've done to death already. They've done it all, so naturally they'll do things, go places they've not been before. Broadening their horizons is just a by product bimbo. People travel because its fun, if you haven't noticed yet that pleasure is one of the main motivators in life.
leave it to a dirty eurofag to get classist just to try and justify the delusions that traveling is some apex experience
that's what people say when there's no logical or objective reason for doing something
It's so women can take foreign cock guilt-free.
I fucked a Chinese student who, post-fuck, told me that she has a bf back home and has never had sex with him. Nobody will ever know what happened.
I've been to seven countries and go to mexico a lot. There's something different each time.
The most significant... The feeling of seeing true poverty, the feeling of realizing you're thousands of miles away from home without anybody you know in a country whose language you don't speak, the feeling of being stuck in the mountains out of food and virtually unable to walk yet picking up your pack and hiking another eleven miles anyways, the feeling of traversing a land so beautiful that it makes you forget that you're sick, the feeling of huddling by the fireplace in a lodge talking with a group of people from completely different corners of the world... These were some of the more profound things that changed me.
And of course, you run into all sorts of unanticipated details that give you a better understanding of the world. Seeing just how old the cities of Europe actually are, seeing how the locals of Queenstown, New Zealand, a hub of fantastic tourist experiences, all respond to the question "what's there to do around here" by pointing to their signature burger joint, which indeed had the best burgers I've ever eaten.
What changes did I experience? I'm more knowledgeable, capable, resilient, adaptable, realistic, emotionally fulfilled, and, of course... worldly.
I'm not being classist, it's just happens to be a fact that in Europe you can be poor as fuck, like I am, and still afford to visit another nearby country every once in a while that's vastly different, culturally and historically.
I've been to seven countries and I've only taken selfies on two occasions. One was just to take a picture of me and my dad together. The other was because I was starting to wonder if I was going to die where I was, so I wanted to take some recent pictures for my mom/family to have of me, since I've always been bad about providing pictures.
But you can tell yourself whatever makes you feel better.
I really like tropical places.
I like going to the beach and swimming and snorkeling. It's also nice to just lay there in the heat.
I also like watching the nature and going to cool cities with much history.
They haven't seen past the veil of shallow, material, surface-level perception/experience so they actually think every place is different
Really they are all the same, at their core, and tourist culture just beefs up perceived meme "differences" to exploit people, or memeculture is genuine but propagated by the populace in order to reinforce their own shallow, delusional identities. Except, of course, for the very remote areas that are too dangerous for most normies.
I travel to fuck cheap prostitutes in third world countries then take some pictures in random locations. When I come back I tell my family lies about all the great adventures I had and all the bullshit I learned.
They think I actually do something with my life.
They'll never know I'm complete fucking failure
>All traveling does is exploit the "grass is always greener" mentality.
I'll be the first to admit that this is my mentality. Mind you, I've never felt that way in a huge city (like that I wanted to live there) but I've visited smaller towns and really liked pretending that it was "home". I don't think I could ever live in the mid-west for example, but I liked pretending that I could while visiting.
It's physically painful and crippling me more and more every day knowing that I can never embrace my 2d waifu. She's the only thing keeping me alive yet the only thing that causes so much pain.
I think it's because they live outside their head so a change of surroundings would be pretty thrilling for them. Depressed weirdos like us can't escape our feels just by physically moving to China so a good documentary would be almost as stimulating.
This is one of the things i like with travelling.
i travelled alone in europe for 2 months, met an r9k platonic friendo, and we lost each other's virgins.
hahahahaha op you are doing the memes irl wrong hahahahaha *points and you and laughs* hahahahaha
/trv/ler here. It's one of the best ways to spend your free time. Always exploring, seeing new things, meeting new people, trying new stuff. Been to over 50 countries and I'm not stopping anytime soon.
>that entire first paragraph
that's some next level normie babel.
travels a few miles, eats some new food, and thinks the whole experience has fundamentally changed who he is and the world as he perceives it.
I hate it.
I hate the feeling of being dropped in an unknown place, then given the task of finding the tourist attractions, and of course, making photos for the family, cause they will want to tell everyone their baby has been somewhere they haven't gone to.
And if you're not a normie, it's going to be harder. You'll have some problem, probably. With finding something, or just a random accident. And nobody will want to help you. If you travelled with friends, well, it would be easier, but you're not a normie, and you have no friends.
And, of course, you have to be rich.
I recently booked flights to and from Japan, I'll be travelling for 13 days. I have a plan. But if I can't find anyone on couchsurfing to let me sleep, I'll be fucked. Acommodation will take at least half of my planned budget, so I'd either have to resize it (and forget about Miata when I go back home), or cut it on other stuff (...eh, I guess I could try to hitchhike from Osaka to Tokyo, but it would be very hard for a male).
But, I'll be in Japan (during cherry blossom season nonetheless). Korea gets kinda boring after a while (currently studying there, but from Eastern Europe).
Will it be worth it? If I don't die of fucking stress, probably yes, since I won't get another chance. Doesn't mean I can't hate it.
Also, when you are a normie abroad, you immediately cease to be a normie.
Therefore, if you are not a normie, and you struggle to communicate with normies in your homecountry, it is easier abroad, because most of the foreigners are non-normies.
No, not really. Communication skills don't include only spoken/written language, but also the ability to ask random people for directions. And that requires some confidence, maybe even more than normally, since you can't be sure you will be understood.
Because traveling alone is the most beautiful thing in the world. You can completely escape who you are back home, nobody knows you, nobody judges.
I often take on a certain persona when I travel, the new experiences are great and it feels as if I get to live multiple lives.
Normies just travel to "party" and because they think it makes them better somehow. They go with friends and they only interact with said friends. For them it is just like home sans the view.
I enjoy travelling about, but chances are i'd never go to the same places twice unless they were really that good.
Managed to travel to a couple countries in yurop and back home for about 150 dosh altogether on travelling alone, peak time to do it when flying and train times where they cost like 25 euros at most
It felt like an adventure in my vidya, roaming and seeing these new places yourself, berlin wall and gates of germany, catacombs in italy, the homes in the cliffs at greece and the belgium towns that have been built around the water flows/rivers
Sadly normies can't appreciate these things and just go to boring places like spain for "sun, sea, booze and sex" and see nothing else besides the bar district down the road.
Traveling for them is staying at a 5 star hotel in some south american or caribbean shithole where one night costs a fraction of what it would cost in the 1st world. They go to all the tourist spots listed on the brochure and go back saying "omg *insert 3rd world shithole* is amazing xDDD"
This is the reality of normaltravel.
sex tourism is literally the only reason to travel. even robots are treated like chad in places like DR and Colombia
