All travellers are better than you, it has been confirmed.
All people aged between 18 and 25 that jumped on a plane and went to south east asia for a minimum of 2 weeks and stayed in a hostel, have a more profound notion of existence than you.
Lloyd Taylor decided not to join the working rat race at 18 or burden himself or the country with debt for an education in media studies but instead chose the unique and nobel path of journeying to the far east.
“I just wanted to do something a bit different and get in touch with my spiritual self, to shed my materialistic ways and be at one with nature, plus immerse myself in a new culture, learn a new language and more importantly show off my acoustic guitar skills”.
Lloyd has been in Thailand now for a month, he’s been on an excursion to a must see temple and befriended a group of english travellers who are teaching him the way (having already been to India themselves).
Lloyd isn’t planning to stay long though “i’m headed to Australia next, to be honest it’s really hard work, i haven’t a scooby how to speak thai the puddings are rubbish and that temple i saw was zzzzzz, plus i hear the girls in Australia are hot”.
Thirty something Tom Jones has been travelling since his late twentys. Tom got back from his most recent trip a few months ago and has moved back in with his parents. “Travelling has really enlightened my mind and developed my spirituality in a way thats just not possible if you conform to what society expects of you. Fine i don’t have a job now but i dont need money as i’m not materialistic like that, i see my job as more of a teacher, to guide and impart my wisdom”.
Tom’s long suffering parents
Tom’s planning to meet up with an old friend later, who will be buying the drinks.
