The basis of tourism is perception of otherness, of something being different from the usual.

Tourism is the topic of this week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge. It’s a pretty broad term so I decided to focus on the basis of it. I asked my self: “What is the purpose of my trips?”. For the sake of beautiful photos? Or to show-off to my peers? No, I travel because I’m curious. I want to see different places, learn about different cultures, and probably have a taste of them. I don’t travel to a specific destination because everyone else did, and certainly, I don’t do so for Instagramable photos.
