Weekly Photo Challenge: Path

The path of least resistance or off the beaten track? That’s the question to ask when deciding on your next vacation wherever that may be. One option is to go on a guided tour. The other is to strike on your own. Both have their benefits and risks.

The former enables you to see all the familiar tourist spots but, due to time constraints, it doesn’t offer you much in experiencing the local culture. Oftentimes, it only gives you enough time to take photos to brag about back home. On the other hand, the latter allows you to wander around and discover the country’s hidden gems but, at the same time, it runs you the risk of getting lost or mugged in the process.

A possible alternative is a guided tour that allows free time for yourself to do as you please. Now that I’ve become older and wiser, I find it to be the ideal situation for me.

When you come to think about it, though, there’s no right or wrong. It doesn’t really matter which route to take. It’s how you deal with it that counts.
