Vacation. We love taking a break and going for vacations. In my opinion, ‘vacation’ can be classified into two categories.

One, in which you spend more time outdoor.You go out with maps and checklist and make sure you visit all the tourist attraction spots suggested by Lonely Planet and friends who have been there, seen all.Though you are on a holiday, your day begins early. You have a kingsize breakfast before you embark on a sightseeing adventure. You drive, walk, climb till the sun goes down. You return exhausted but very satisfied. A true tourist.


In the second one,vacation planning means spending hours on the internet reading reviews about  hundreds of  resorts/hotel/homestays on various travel advice sites. A room with a perfect view  of the blue sea/the hills is a high priority. Though, you plan to watch the sunrise you never wake up on time. You love the breakfast spread. You spend a full hour trying out all the dishes and finally end with a bowl of seasonal fruits. You do ask the staff about the places to visit and even collect brochures and contact address of various tourist guides.  You loiter a while in the lobby and garden before you retire to your room to RELAX and UNWIND. You pull out a book from your bag, curl up in the bed and re read it for the nth time.You are among the first to reach the dining area for lunch. After a lazy afternoon at the pool, in the evening  you finally venture out for a walk. Evening ends with music and good wine. Yes, your camera is loaded with pictures of the room, the food and the perfect view from your window.

You guessed it right. I’m a snob when it comes to vacations.For me, vacations are for relaxing and rejuvenating ( Exception – wildlife safari 🙂 ).

Even the most laid back and egalitarian among us can be insufferable snobs when it comes to coffee, music, cars, beer, or any other pet obsession where things have to be just so. What are you snobbish about?

  1. I love the two distinctions of vacation. On one hand, we have the planned vacation where we see the sights – have a plan and go out and explore, see places. On the other, we can have an “unplanned” vacation, just sitting around and doing what we like, like reading or watching TV. The latter can be more relaxing sometimes 🙂


  2. I must admit I’m a bit of a lazy tourist. I like to see things, but in a leisurely fashion, with plenty of sleep and room service mixed in 🙂 Apologies for my absence, it’s all been a little crazy. Hope you are well.
