The Traveling Aesthetic: A Guide to the World Around You
The travel aesthetic is something that is created by this generation of Gen Z’s and is populated by social media without any doubt. And I am not saying that I am against it or not. But it is important for the people to understand that going to places and posting 24x7 about their life is not what they need to do and experience.
According to me, if you are going someplace new and spending a big amount of money on your travelling than you should at least take some time out for you and experience and learn about the place’s culture and people. Sit with the new people, talk to them, understand and soak up their things. These things will help you in learning and exploring many things even about yourself.
We think that we know everything about ourselves, like what we want, what we need, etc, but it is not completely true. When you travel to different and new cities and roam on the streets of the cities, meeting new people and understanding their ideology and their work cultures, their languages, their likes, their dislikes, everything, you will surely learn many new things even about yourself.
