Book the Trip and Find Out for Yourself How it is

Running a travel blog is one of the many ways through which to connect with other like-minded individuals who have a hunger for travel and a thirst for adventure, especially if it’s a personal travel blog such as mine over here and you share more of your own personal experiences than listing tips and tricks. I’ve had the pleasure of being able to not only collaborate with other travellers (many of whom also operate their own personal travel blogs), but also to meet up with some of these fellow travellers whenever we’re in the same region.

As someone whose travel ambitions are driven by an underlying mission to taste a local beer in every country I visit, one can safely say that it all has very little to do with politics. Since I often travel with my younger brother however, the family always worries about us possibly running into trouble, mostly with regards what they see on the news about the state of affairs in many popular destinations. We’re often warned to rather avoid certain countries and territories, but in line with the spirit of any traveller at heart, this only serves to pique one’s interest.

Heck, I’ll go all the way to resolve to stick a world map on the dart board and book a trip to wherever the dart lands. Not only does this speak to the true traveller’s sense of adventure, but it pretty much just reinforces what I’ve suspected all along, that things aren’t always as they seem in the media.

In fact, I’d even go as far as saying that organised, mainstream media clearly has an agenda — we’re not talking conspiracy theories here, but they have an agenda which is to simply cover anything and everything in accordance to a mission statement that falls in line with advertiser money. It’s as simple as this — who would book a book a ticket with an airline servicing the Middle East for example if, all they see on the news are some reports about ongoing wars, suicide bombings and terrorist attacks? Do you see any airlines which specifically service such regions advertising with those news channels?

Instead, what you’d rather see are some ads about insurance maybe or anything else which wills you to spend your money in a manner which enriches someone else — to enrich everybody else but yourself.

That’s why my advice to anyone whose heart is set on going somewhere would be that you should just book the trip and go and find out for yourself just how it is. Oftentimes you’ll be really surprised at just how it really is — pleasantly surprised that is.

I used to be one of those guys myself who after looking at some pics and watching videos of my fellow traveller friends had questions like “Wait, is that the same Egypt / Pakistan / Zimbabwe / Cuba I saw on the news?”

I’m not discounting the fact that there are some dangers associated with travelling to some parts of the world, but that’s what travellers who’ve gone before us are there for.
