Who doesn’t love the unknown? Who doesn’t love the mystery of travelling and exploring a new place? Who doesn’t love the delight in meeting people from different and trying out a variety of cuisines? What if I tell you, that you are going on a blind date with the world to some far off place which may or may not be in your bucket list, how would you react? Nervous? Scared? Apprehensive? Excited?
If someone were to take me to a place I haven’t even researched one bit, I would initially be nervous for sure wondering where am I going. But once I reach there, it would be a delight to explore by going with the flow. For many of us, its important to research all the hotspots of any location before we visit. It ensures that there are no surprises. But for others like me, while some research is fine, I like to keep my agenda fairly open. I feel that it’s important to get in the mood to see the sights and sounds. In my view if one just sticks to a specific planned itinerary, then the real fun of a trip is lost. It feels more like a course which needs to get done with rather than a trip to explore the unknown.
