This is something I forget about when I hear friends or acquaintances talk about their own travels. Traveling is a personal endeavor, so everyone should be able to travel in a way that he or she enjoys most. Graham Hughes in discussing his quest to visit every country in the world without traveling by plane, captures that idea:
Everybody has his or her own experiences of travel. Travel is a very subjective thing. I don’t think there is a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it. I just think there’s a way that you enjoy and I actually enjoy this.
