Why do we travel?

Why do we travel?

Some say to meet new people and culture. Well, If you live in one of the big cosmopolitan cities (i.e. London, Sydney, Berlin, New York, etc), you can soak in new culture and people virtually every weekend in one of your suburbs or neighbourhoods. Why cramping yourself in economy section of Jetair (if you travel in first class, lucky you!) for something which you can do in your own backyard?

Some travel with a checklist of historial buildings and World Heritage sites. As far as I'm concerned, I prefer doing that in the comfort of my living room on the screen of Discovery TV channel.

If you ask me, I would say I travel for food and train and a hotel room with a nice view. These can't be created on the pages of travel book or Travel and Tourism series on TV. You have tips on a hotel in nice location, or on scenic train ride, or you know of a street side restaurant in old Delhi serving succulent kebab, you are my friend. You are my mate. You are my Guru!
