Lynda Does Not See Togo as a Beautiful Place, She Wants to Know Why I am Here?
Excellent video... one of your best. And just a terrific philosophical discussion about traveling and the world. Thanks!
Whether we can verbalize it, or not, humans do not want to waste time, at least not their own time. Yet, to travel the world is to believe that nothing is a waste of time. To live one day at a time, and to stop and smell the roses requires one to accept. I do not hope people here the word “lifestyle,” we each want our own unique lifestyle.
I spent several years teaching primative living skills and lived a 19th century life without all the frills of modern life very happily.
I get what you are saying about status climbing in the States. I assert that for a significant subculture here that is not the case though. The Tiny House movement, for example, is an example of people who want to simplify life, to value relationships with the land and others over status climbing.
I guess what I am pointing at is that people can have that kind of attitude toward life whether they travel or not.
