Coming Tomorrow:’The Other Part of Travel’

If you read my blog, I spend some time posting travel pieces.  I usually focus on quirky bars and restaurants, the general surroundings, and fun things to do.  It’s usually vacation oriented, so why wouldn’t it be about indulging?

But, one of the things I leave out are the weird interactions, happenings, and even incidents, where I am an unwilling victim, or an unknowing witness to something utterly insane.  Let’s face it, the world has gotten strange.  Really strange.  Astronomically strange.  It’s unhealthy, that’s how strange it is to be out in public.  And not just certain people.  For everyone.

Everyone seems to be working hard to make things over-complicated, unfathomable, unthinkable, overt, and above all, unreasonable.  Perhaps it’s in the rush to be a part of the next killer meme.  Or to get a video to go viral, add subscribers to whatever nonsense channels they have, so they can claim an income they aren’t getting, in hopes of scoring that income elsewhere.

Or it could be that insanity goes unchecked in our ever-benevolent society.  At any rate, I feel like trying out some story telling from the back pages of my travel journal.

I’ll be posting the first one tomorrow, and we’ll see how it goes.
