This is not a ‘travel’ blog | Monday Mumbles 18

Hello,

Lately I have been so uninspired to write here. Maybe that’s why I just feel like scribbling so randomly that you are getting a consecutive Monday Mumbles post. It’s funny because I am the least busy right now in the evenings to write but I just don’t feel like it. Not even a tiny bit. Like, I cannot say that this is just laziness. It is more than that, I just do not want to write, I can sense that. However, earlier when I used to write posts I actually had to take time out for them. Anyway, today I am in a much better mood and unlike my other posts, where I usually share something in a planned way, I just genuinely feel like scribbling away today.

Lately whoever has visited my blog, they have got an impression that I am a ‘travel blogger’ or my main interest is in writing about travel. Well, most of my posts in the recent times have been about places I am travelling to, so its really not their fault that they thought so. Since I know neither of these things are true (I being a travel blogger or my main interest area being writing about travel), I thought I’ll clarify:

  • I like to write about things I experience in my day to day life – a book that I read, a restaurant that I visited, a dish that I cooked, a market that I loved or a city that I visited. Since these days travelling is happening a lot, you see more of it on the blog because its recent. That is all. Its definitely not my favourite thing to write about (I actually don’t know what’s my favourite).
  • I am not even an awesome traveller. Oh, I have wanted to write about this thing since so long! You know how people are bitten by ‘wanderlust’ (especially on social media these days 😛 ) Guess that never happened with me. I like visiting new places, seeing new things, eating at new places and so on, but that’s about it. I have never craved badly to visit any place and I am not someone who would want to always, always travel. You know most people say ‘If I could just quit my job and travel forever’, I would never be that person. Even if I was a billionaire, I cannot love travelling forever. I would rather be at one of my favourite places and take short trips. Or long ones with people I love. So, we are all different. Some of us want to travel really badly, not necessarily by quitting other jobs, but maybe that or maybe getaway as much as possible. For me, travel is one of the activities that I like to do time to time but definitely not one of my favourite things to do. (These days its happening a lot because the opportunity is such, nothing more, its not like I have got some extra love for travel).

My random scribbling is more or less over. If you read till here, thank you so much for putting up with this. ❤
