30 ways to tell you’re a traveler at heart, Day 6

We at Roomnhouse have been feeding your vagabond heart throughout the week with reasons as to why you could be the pure definition of a traveller.  And you may not have found yourself in tune with all of the things we’ve mentioned in our posts, but the beauty about that is that you have so much more to experience.  So here are a few more of those things your vagabond spirit could associate with…


#22 Your boots are made for walking, and that’s just what they’ll do:

You love everything about getting to your destination.  The late night flight, the early morning train ride, the taxi ride to your hotel, checking in, making sure you get the room with the best view etc.  But while all this is happening, there’s an itch developing inside of you and that itch is to just get outta your hotel and start exploring on foot. 

You are a ‘walkaholic’.  You are already a few hours into your trip, but to really get a true sense of it you need to step out.  For you, the journey begins only after you are out on foot.  You love playing footsie with your travel destination :P.

You love to explore on foot and think there’s no better way to get to know a place.  Walking sets your body and soul free.


#23 ‘Solitude’ is your favorite Black Sabbath song:

 I don’t mean this literally and I know most of you must not have heard it (I strongly suggest that you do) but what I’m really trying to say is that you are not afraid to travel alone.  In fact you feel it’s better in a way.

You have no one dragging you down and you don’t need to match up to anyone’s pace and vice-versa. You love the space it creates for you, as well as the opportunity for experiencing more.

“The man who goes alone can start today, but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready.” – Henry David Thoreau

#24 Your living room showcase tells a story of where all you’ve traveled:

You love collecting souvenirs.  You make sure you have something special to take back home with you, not so you could show it off, as such, but ’cause you want something to remember the place by.  You want to cherish a memory, which is so very dear to you, and souvenirs help you do just that. 

‘Souvenirs’ could be anything – it could something made by the locals or an ancient artifact.  For me, its usually something that I come across which mostly has to do with the land- pine cones from the mountain tops of Shimla- small rocks from Metzadá- pebbles from the Dead Sea – make your pick.

See you soon, until then journey on.
