Just like we all do here, I like reading blogs. It gives insight in other peoples lifes, how they look at certain things and boy, how I like to read about other peoples thoughts! The life stories they have, the travels they made, their adventures, I just can’t get enough of it! So as I was reading along, I stumbled across this blog. When I read that first sentence, it was like it became clear to me what I want to do. Or better said, what I want to become!
“I want to be a tourist for a living, inspiring people to live.” – CatchCarri
As a Tourism Management student, I get the question “What do you want to with this degree?” a lot. Almost everybody I meet asks me this. I used to answer that I want to see as much of the world as possible, but after reading this I think I found my new answer: “I want to become a tourist”.
While travelling, you meet a lot of new people. Everybody has their story on why or how they are travelling. On the night I was having a bit too much fun, I met this guy from York. He told me he was a lawyer in the army and took a year off work (don’t ask me why, the music was loud and I had a hard time understanding his accent..). He told me he basically got paid to go travelling. When his boss asked him where he wanted to go, he got the money and off he went.
Every traveller I meet, every travel story I hear or read inspires me. There’s a beach party again tonight and I think I just might go. To get the “student life” feeling back and hear some more inspiring stories. After all, every story is unique. What’s your story?
