Travelers as Lovers

Our settlement is fluent…..

All we need is a backpack…and a tent.  

           *  *  *

We’ve just arrived and been unpacked.

I stare at your lips; waiting impatiently to hear: “Let’s pack!”


As I see no end in sight to this passionate journey,

No one will hear us to say: “Hey…We’re back!”


We’ve never been found, we’ve never been sought,

And still we’re each other’s needle in this haystack


Since there’s something in the air which directs us all the ways;

Don’t worry Azizam, if we are off the track…


The only way which I know is a shortcut to your heart

I don’t mind if I get lost, and I won’t be back


Are we travelers as lovers or

lovers as travelers? Whatever…



Khob giram ham gom shodim…

I found YOU… so be darak!

Ah! I see.....

We have a different view of backpacking due to background experiences.

For me backpacking means going camping to a National Park in the U.S. and going hiking.

Yes, I guess traveling with the one you love to different places, is romantic. Just your lover, you and the elements.

Thanks for reading and for the comments...

Natalia: I was inspired by witnessing a couple who were backpacking. Its a long story and I won't go through it, but romance can be seen in everything...It also is not necessarily a guy thing. Most of traveller backpackers whom I was witnessed were couples. My first experience of seeing backpackers made me curiouse to know a bout them as they were travelling around the world, with a low-cost  budget but in a long-term period . Backpackers now seem to act thorough an organized movement in international as well as local level (like in camping).

Nice poem

by Natalia Alvarado-Alvarez on

However, I just don't see the romance in back packing. It must be a guy thing.

Camping was always a family activity in my life. It was never a two person activity.

Travelers as lovers

I think we are travelers before we are lovers.  You don't want to travel if the love doesn't like to. But like you said, be darak when you have love!
