I love playing the guitar. I am actually very good at it. I also love travelling. During my vacation, I am almost always travelling to a far off country. I love seeing the top tourist attractions in the world. I love seeing strange wild animals and observing their behavior out in the wild. I love to see people of different cultures and how they live. I love to see awesome natural features, and I love sampling the exotic cuisines around the world.
I decided to combine my love of playing the guitar with my love for travelling. This decision came after my last trip to South Africa during my last vacation. On the trip, we had gone for a safari around the Kruger National Park in a group of seven. Four British ladies, an Irish gentlemen myself and another American guy.
During the trip we had had an awesome time. Apart from the remarkable wildlife that we were able to view and the brilliant weather, we were also greatly entertained by Mc Andrew the Irish guy. He was one enthusiastic fellow who had many humorous stories that he joyously told us with occasional addictive hearty laughs. Apart from the many stories and jokes, he also had another surprise. He had a little banjo that he packed in his bag. He was quite good at playing the instrument and he would often entertain us as we drove across the flat sunny savannah or when we were camped at night under the clear starry skies of the African night.
The attention that Mc Andrews had attracted from folks wherever we went due to his banjo playing skills made me greatly envious. This was particularly due to the fact that I knew I was equally or better than him albeit with a guitar.
This is what drove me to decide that I would combine my travels with my guitar playing.
However, I did not have a suitable guitar to travel with. I had my bulky Seagull s6 that simply could not do as a travel guitar. I had to find a guitar that was small light and easily playable. It also needed to be a hardy guitar that would withstand rough treatment that would be inevitable during travels.
During my searches on the internet. I was impressed when I came across a Taylor GS mini review. The Taylor GS, as I read from the review was a small compact guitar that is specially designed for travel. It is small light and easily playable. Despite its small size, the Taylor GS mini does not lose anything in terms of the sound volume and sound quality. Most importantly I was impressed when I saw that despite these outstanding features that were ideal for me, the advertised Taylor GS mini was still quite affordable.
I decided that I would buy thee small guitar. I want to buy it early so that I can also have some time to get better acquainted with it. When I visit Paris during my next vacation, I plan to impress.
