Random Destination Snippets

Somebody once said ‘Travel is about the journey and it is not just the destination’. It is during this very journey that we find something that appeals (either in a positive or negative manner) to our six senses and that is what makes the journey so interesting. It doesn’t matter whether you are taking the beaten path or discovering virgin territories. It doesn’t make a difference whether you are traveling alone, as a couple or as a family with kids, you will have your own story and each of these stories will have their own reasons and situations.

I have my story too as I travel through each country, city and village. I travel alone and do a bit of both the beaten and the unbeaten path. I travel without a plan and without any kind of guidance. This helps me get closer to the culture and that is how I get the best or the worst reactions.

After visiting each country, I end up writing random snippets/thoughts/interpretations/facts from each country. The primary purpose of these articles is to summarize my experience of that country in brief sentences and make for an interesting read. But, you can also read these posts to prepare yourself for a country that you are planning to visit, albeit at a high level. Whatever the case may be, I hope you find the randomness about each destination a great read.

Indonesia Kenya Laos Macau
Malaysia Philippines Singapore Sri Lanka (Colombo Airport)
Taiwan Thailand (Bangkok) Vietnam  

Beautiful Samburu Women: All you need to do is offer the chief of the tribe 2 cows and you can get any of them as your bride :-)
I will add more destination snippets here as I accomplish writing more posts.
