Stop being a bummer, Seth Godin!

27 Jul


Recently, I have seen this quote floating around Facebook, and it totally bums me out. It assumes that the only reason people go on vacation is to escape life. I don’t know what planet Seth Godin is from, but in my world, traveling is to enhance an already awesome life. Traveling is for learning about different cultures, understanding history, experiencing art, eating good food, making new friends, and bringing all these experiences home with you to share with those you love. Vacations are a win-win for anyone with the glass half full.

In my world, vacations/travel is an awesome way to enhance life, not a way to escape it. Am I right? Now, May I please have this message circulate the internet, so the world doesn’t have to feel bummed out for going on vacation? Seriously, folks.

    You’re right. Traveling is a way to enrich the life.

    Travelling is different, a vacation is different. Most people who go on vacations, see it as a short-term espace, and not a life-time experience. And therein lies the difference. I am certain Seth Godin refers to the former kind. When life itself is a beautiful journey, only an interested, curious and inspired traveller can have real fun!
