PostSubject: Ever been ashamed to be a traveller   Thu Oct 15, 2009 4:09 pm

I have and i feel sad at that now. When i was younger, i was ashamed of me background, i never saw the good qualities of it, as parts of me family became settled and some not, didnt know where i was really, and when u r younger u wanna belong.aS i got older, i got more confidence about who i was n where i come from. perhaps me story is different to some on here as i mixed with both travellers and non travellers from an early life. but have u ever denied or been ashamed of being a traveller? just interested, no judgement

meaning, a lot of the positive things we brought to a place when stopping over is now not feasible or trdiditional services we provide r not needed now, this highlits to many ppl the negative side of travellers only. i hope this makes sense??

i always been self emplyed. but where i am u cannot go calling i dont know if its illegal or not but plenty ppl have signs on the door saying no selling of no services and all that

most the travellers i know hide the fact they r travellers to get work, like havin a landline answered by a company instead of mobile only etc etc

ill always be on the road to certain degree

things r changin thats 4 sure but i dont know how we can turn this all around or where its heading, please god, we dont lose it all

I agree with Guiney, more ashamed of some of the ppl rather than the race as a whole

Anyone else got real life stories?
