Travel Quote Series – The Enduring Value Of Experiences

Travel Quote Series 20
From our incredible encounter with a herd of migrating wildebeest in central Serengeti, Tanzania

I loved collecting ‘things’, once upon a time. Objects for the house. Clothes and accessories. And being Indian, jewellery. Because they gave me pleasure, and because it was the done thing.

Today, I cannot look at anything of monetary value without converting the cost into travel terms. I have walked out of many stores with a wallet full of gift money, eschewing the fleeting pleasure of expensive baubles for the enduring value of travel memories. I have evolved into a hoarder of a different kind.

Hi, I'm Madhu. Wanderer. Travel blogger. Story teller. Bitten late and hard by the travel bug, I am on a mission to make up for lost time.

  1. I too cherish my travel memories, and my blogs and pictures which record them all. I also love to collect a few things along the way, but nothing expensive and not too much. 🙂

  2. Lovely thought, Madhu. It is true how we are all collectors at heart, fearing the moment may pass to soon without relishing every part of it when it is happening.

  3. Madhu…I get it. I’m hoarding myself in Bali as we speak. I’m saving half my free breakfast for lunch! I don’t need things. I need to be…gone. To foreign lands. To anywhere, any time. Now is the best time.
