I always hated an idea of travelling cause it's so much fake. You are not visiting genuine, authentic culture of some particular place, you are rather fucking with tourist sites that are 100% marketing and has zero authenticity with respect to culture you believe you are facing. You are getting served same drinks everywhere and buy same chinese souvenirs. Everything there is to milk you.
If i wanted to genuinely travel and get to know their culture i'd skim casual streets, get drink in random corner stores, visit random granny, talk to random guys, YOU CONTINUE. Cause that's where true culture and authenticity lies, not some eiffel tower selfies where everyone's out there to milk you and there are 700 other cats who are acting just like you, completely draining you of any uniquity that gonna feed your inner self.
What's your take on my take?
