Any Way The Wind Blows.

Some time back, chatting with a friend about travelling, I realised that not everyone wants to go to certain destinations.

What I mean is, each person feels differently about where they want to go.

For myself, I don't feel the attraction (yet) to go to places like China, Japan, Korea, amongst others. Africa? Maybe just Egypt and Morocco. I'm not saying no, it's just that there are places which are out of my current Top Ten list.

The friend did not feel the desire to go to India. And my initial duh reaction was, how can you not want go to India? Instead, he wants to do New Zealand. And I go, oh okay, I don't feel like going to New Zealand. Not yet, at least for now. So I understand what it means when you don't feel the 'pull-factor'.

If I had all the resources - time and moolah - right now, I'd want to do Spain, Turkey, Italy, Morocco and some other old places.

Then again, I might change my mind in the future, so don't hold me ransom over this post :)

I still want to go to New Zealand, okay. One day.


  1. I'm with you on the East Asia destinations. Places like China, Japan, Macau and Taiwan are last on my list as I have no interest to go to countries where I look like the locals ;-)

  2. That's an interesting way to look at it :) - though strangely I want to go to Macau.

  3. i want to go to Holland for the tulip and windmill.. one day maybe. nice blog u have.. :)
