I do not hesitate to refer to myself as somebody who doesn’t find an ultimate and sheer happiness in wandering and exploring. Enter: my friend Jasjeet, who I’m sure must’ve been bitten by one the most hazardous of travel-bugs in the world sometime. She currently lives and studies in Chandigarh.
I see two kinds of people around me:
- People who travel. They have this great ambition to discover and explore. The more they discover and explore the more they want to discover and explore.
- People who don’t travel (even if they could). They don’t ask much of life, don’t have many ambitions or at least their ambitions are totally un-related to others’ ambitions.
Before the internet came into existence, the travel industry – like most industries – functioned differently. All you needed to get started was a working phone line and a handful of travel brochures.
