My dream? To travel the world. Not for work, but to explore, to taste the different cultures. And to know the person I am, to understand myself better through these travels.
I guess I could say Thailand kickstarted that yearning. I travelled with a friend, but we did not take a package tour, prefering to explore on our own. Ayutthaya made the strongest impression on me. The cultural history and the relics... I guess you need to understand the history before you can appreciate what you see. If not, like my friend, you'll just find that one historical temple site no different from all the others.
So now I know, I should find a travelmate who shares the same interest, or I shall simply travel by myself. That will give me the freedom to see exactly what I like, doesn't it? And that's also the reason why I shall endeavour to travel free and easy so that I can pick and choose the places I want to see, not what the tour operators say I should see. For eg. Mini Siam was never included in any tour packages I came across. But that's what I wanted to see, not some tiger farm.
