The Beginning, Ideal Travel
An Age in Need of New Travel Methods
There is nothing harder to say than “Get a lot of rest while you travel.” Though one sets off to refresh themselves after working hard, after going sightseeing at the cost of sleep, since we cannot travel often, we often come back to our daily lives, weary and worn out. Whether it is a problem associated with modern society, or Korean society, I am nonetheless left with a dilemma between “having to do something” even while traveling, or “concern about when would we rest if it isn’t now.” On that note, “working holiday” is an excellent title. Who would refuse the opportunity to work while enjoying vacation, and to earn money while having fun? Of course, reality will be different….
When we are faced with conflict between the two choices, smartphones and SNS is a big help. Once we accomplish the tasks of “going to a restaurant with high ratings”, “taking a photo to prove we’ve been somewhere”, “uploading a great photo on our SNS accounts”, we feel comforted, as if we have at least done the necessary things on our trip, and then, we can fully enjoy ourselves on our travels. When traveling to get away from our grueling daily lives, this method of travel, which gives us a sense of achievement, is quite recommendable.
However, there is a need to be wary of the lure of travels focusing on a sense of accomplishment. In this type of travel, one tends to go for general and stable experiences rather than individual and special ones. Due to this, one ends up getting the same experience as everybody else when going to a different place, and following a different course, rather than getting a different experience according to one’s experiences and environment even if one travels in the same place, and the same route as everybody else. The biggest problem is, this kind of travel is settling as the right answer in many travelers. When I view posts that tell me where and how to get my pic of the day, I sometimes wonder why people who are living different live want similar good photos.
We aim to suggest ideal travel methods where one can focus on our individual travels, and to introduce travel spots where people can travel according to that travel method. The reason why there is no private academy for travel is because there are no answers for travel. We hope that people go on trips that enables them to wholly focus on their travel with the method we are about to introduce. Though we cannot say for certain, when one finishes their travel, a bigger sense of accomplishment may come to them.
