The term “intellectual desert” means a place that lacks quality stimuli that would satisfy my intellectual curiosity.
You see I am not a heavy weigh when it comes to the brain department. But I do need to feed my pea brain on a regular basis, however light weigh that it might be.
The internet usually provides a reliable source for my mental nourishment. But I need more than just the virtual world that the internet offers. I need real world interactions with people. People whom I can look at and share feelings with.
So, this is particularly challenging when I am on travel. As a visitor, I generally have interactions with people on a superficial level. No deep conversations with the bell captain nor political debates with the taxi driver.
Ever being starved of intellectual stimuli? What solutions would you share?
