CLEO (Malaysia) - - TRAVEL SPECIAL -

This guy seems kinda like a poser. He’s at the pub telling his travel tales and they all seem a lit­tle suss — a bit too good to be true. Taj Ma­hal? Seen that. The Great Wall? Climbed it. Eif­fel Tower? You betcha. The box tick­ers thrive on bucket-list spots of well-worn tourist paths. As he goes through his list, the nar­ra­tives don’t seem to add up, and you start tun­ing out. Or when you’re talk­ing about some­thing to­tally un­re­lated, he in­ter­rupts with: “Hey that re­minds me of the time I was in Mac­chu Pic­chu...” Don’t take no­tice. While clock­ing up those air­miles is fun, if you don’t stop to laugh with the locals or get lost in the lo­cal al­ley­ways, can you re­ally claim to have trav­elled? Maybe he just did them to add them to his In­sta­gram feed.
