Working travel - Where's the fun in that?
Work, work, work... That has been synonymous with all of my travels before. A full day's schedule that afforded me no time to explore and enjoy the countries and places that I visited. The airport and the hotel are the only "tourist spots" that I knew of. I wish I could have extended my stays in those countries but then, time and financial constraints prevented me from doing so. Still, I remember telling myself that I will someday go back and take my own sweet time exploring every nook and corner of each of these places. And so to each of these countries I visited, in the words of Gen. Mcarthur I would always say, "I shall return".
Having achieved most of my professional goals and with the financial benefits that came with it, I am now prepared to give myself a break. Time to return and conquer these countries and shoot everything in sight (with a camera, of course).
Why VT? Just like the handy knife of Mcgyver (this would show my age), I know VT will prove invaluable if ever I decide to become a serious traveller and tourist. Hopefully in time, I may be able to contribute and join you in assisting aspiring travellers. But for now, I do hope that you will allow me to "use" all of you, VTer's, as I make my journey worthwhile...
