I love traveling. Who doesn’t? And my wanderlust is stronger and stronger with every new photography skill. I know about people who are totally ok with being at home and don’t need to discover new places and cultures. And also with those who do want to go abroad. But they stay at a hotel and maybe go for some trip with other tourists.
I’m not into that kind of travelling. I love to discover cultures, experience tastes and the life in that country itself. Sure, there are places where experiencing the life there is a bit tricky thing, but I prefer to choose countries where it is possible to do so.
Anyway, photography taught me how to enjoy everything. How to slow down and wait. How not to hurry to see everything possible without feeling the right pleasure of the place. We all know those tourists who go to see everything, take a picture of it and continue. When I’m trying to make a beautiful photo, I have no space for hurrying. I need to stop, to go and see what it looks like. To wait for the right light.
I love this way of travelling. And there are maybe people around me who are nervous because of my time, but… sorry, go if you want to. I’ll stay and wait.
Those are the places that will stay in my heart for ever. And I believe many more are going to join them.
Which places are your favourite? And what kind of traveller are you? Or a tourist. Do you prefer hotels and safety to adventure?
Love, Michaela ♥
