But Millennial-style tourism like staying in the “art”-hotels or eating a “best-in-town” avocado toast might not be better than being an old-style tourister with a hulk of a camera and an ugly panama. It is just putting extra gloss on the same old thing whose name is superficiality.

It is time to become an “anti-tourist” and make conscious choices about where you go and what you want to see, feel and experience. The anti-tourist is not an actor following someone’s script, he is a creator of his own journey. This means that I am going to skip some things and focus on what is essential for me. It also means traveling less, but better, making each journey a unique experience and staying open to all wonderful ‘unknowns’ along the way.
