THE GREATEST IRONY.
The first post starts off a little curious. The irony in the world as it is the greatest in the nature of us as human.
“Man sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. He is so anxious about the future that he doesn't enjoy the present: the result being that he does not live in the present nor the future. He then lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived”
~ Dalai Lama
“Sometimes the time you feel lonely is the time you most need to be by yourself. “
~ Douglas Coupland, Shampoo Planet
The biggest irony I see in people is as the words go: the grass is greener on the other side. A little background on myself. I am a Asian girl who loves to travel. And living in a city busting with live, my friends and I usually suffer from wanderlust rather often. As we spoke of our dreams, it usually encompasses a dream trip of one or two. Now this is what I found:
Asians dreamed to go Europe and America
Americans and Europeans love to go Asia
Just for read: World's favourite holiday destination
Ok so what’s the irony, you may ask. In this epic world called earth, there are tons of things to explore on each continent. However, people are flocking to cross the Pacific to feel the “greener grass”. We have too often overly focused on what’s at the other end of the world forgetting our own treasures at our end.
Are you also currently going through a stage of irony in your life now?
I will be posting some great travelling destinations soon. Forget Las Vegas and Italy for a moment now and join me into the adventures of some not so common places of interest across Asia.
