You have just arrived from a trip, in the washing machine the clothes that until a few days ago accumulated dust and stains in the backpack (where you still have things to store or throw away), but before you can locate where you are will deal with unexpected questions related to places where have you been.
They are usually done with good intention, with passing curiosity or by simple education but these are the questions that have been repeated most In my environment (family and friends) in these barely eight years I have been making trips outside Europe.
My answers and the questions themselves, said with all my love, I think they reflect a gap that separate those who travel of those who do not.

1.- And how do you think of going to these sites?
Well, because they are there and they don't look anything like what I know. I do not say that, for example, "seen a fishing village, seen all" (that I am Asturian!) But for travel and see more of the same, I better put on top of my list what is new and different.
In fact there are places, far away, yes, to which I have gone more than once (India, Thailand), so at ease I have found there, so I can also be slightly incoherent and not go only to new destinations.
