Travel Lifestyle the Point of No Return

Travel Lifestyle the Point of No Return
Mira a friend of mine I met in Guatemala is here in Bangkok, she is from the USA and 21 years old.

When we talk, I often find myself talking like a father, more than a friend.

I was trying to explain to her yesterday and the Anthropology groups that have now moved from Taipei, Taiwan to Bangkok, Thailand.

“There is a point of no return with some of this craziness; there is a point where you can never change back. What you do today can cause you problems for the rest of your life.”

I am 53 now, not a kid, not an infant, I am an adult, I went over the edge when I was younger, became an alcoholic, had not respect for my elders.

HUGE mistake and one I will pay for, for the rest of my life.

There is an illusionary world of the common traveler; they often lose touch with what a normal person in their country is doing. As they move farther away from normal, they finally cross the line where they no longer can fit into normal society.

My estimate if that about 95 percent of the travelers who stay out more than two years have extreme social interaction problems upon trying to return to normal jobs.
