New words (part 2)

Another new word from Shaun and Karen... Travelgasm.

That moment when travelling, possibly after a few ho-hum days, where you get a moment of pure and utter joy which reminds you of why you travel.

I had my first on this trip whilst on the mountain pass in Georgia (utterly stunning natural beauty) and the latest whilst walking around the old town in Kashgar (the mix of sights, sounds, smells, people, Chinglish - especially the area which specialised in musical instruments & metal goods).
