“Please be a traveler, not a tourist. Try new things, meet new people, and look beyond what’s right in front of you. Those are the keys to understanding this amazing world we live in.” – Andrew Zimmern
I’ve always wanted to have a travel journal in order to keep my pictures, memories and impressions in the same place. Eventually, I got to have one and put it all together. Later on – when I started contributing to ISM and really getting into the ‘travel subject’ – I have realised that it would be interesting to see how others perceive travelling and what reasoning do they have behind this action.
Have you ever wondered why do people travel? Is it for the people? Is it for the attractions? Is it for the reputation? Maybe travel is about everything and nothing; maybe it’s just a commodity or maybe it’s just a chance to take pictures and show them to the world. Or is it? Some choose to travel for basic reasons, but presumably others have more in mind when they choose a new destination.
For these reasons, getting to know the judgements behind one’s perception of travelling could be intriguing and could show what do people get from the experiences.
I have created the following survey (you can find the link below) in order to feed my curiosity about people’s preferences related to travelling and to compare and contrast different views and opinions on the subject. The survey would allow me (and, soon, others who are interested in the subject) to look at different perspectives on travelling.
Hoping to receive some fine and diverse information which I will analyse and later publish. Thank you for your time and don’t forget to open your eyes and your ears to what the world has to tell you! ☺
