Why do I travel? And how do I travel in the most comfortable way? What do I want to say? What are the things that attract me while I'm traveling? Traveling alone forces me to answer all these questions.
Being in a city like Tokyo further reinforces what I don't like about traveling. I don't like shopping or consumerism. I see the thousands of shops that tourists flock to and I feel almost nauseous. All I want is to hole up in a cafe and read. Or visit the museum. Or a nice park. Maybe visit some small shops. Eat good food. Take photos. Sometimes that's all I want to do.
So that's what I shall do in the next few days. There is no point in pretending to be a typical tourist. I am a "boring" tourist and I intend to remain that way.
