I'm not the kind of person who travels just so that they can brag about the amount of countries they've been to. I don't see the point of that either; don't get me wrong, I'm really impressed if you travel a lot, but when that's the only thing you talk about every time we meet, there is a problem. I myself think no one needs to brag about their traveling. If people know and find you interesting enough, they will ask for your stories. As for me, I travel because I like to collect stories, see things, meet people, satisfy my artistic and wanderlust nature. If you've traveled with me you would know. I actually don't really care if I have to see all the touristy stuff. To me, wandering around in my own pace, stopping for a little while to sketch, or sitting down at a local coffee shop to people watch, these kinds of things are more appealing to me.
(Actually, I recently got pickpocketed and lost everything in my wallet except for my passport. I lost quite an amount of money, but thankfully I still have my passport and sketchbook :) )
Til' next time!
