On the other hand de Botton in his article, “On Habit” says how living an ordinary life rather than a marvelous one is also interesting. It is not that we always have to travel marvelous (Famous) places which we even don’t know about because we can also travel in our own neighborhood an ordinary place and still have fun observing things which we never had looked before with an interest. The traveling mindset that we have does not depend on the places that we go but how we approach those places.
