“Nothing induces concentration or inspires memory like an alien landscape or a foreign culture.  It is simply not possible (as romantics think) to lose yourself in an exotic place.  Much more likely is an experience of intense nostalgia, a harking back to an earlier stage of your life, or seeing clearly a serious mistake.  But this does not happen to the exclusion of the exotic present.  What makes the whole experience vivid and sometimes thrilling is the juxtaposition of the present and the past.”

-Paul Theroux-

***

“For if every true love affair can feel like a journey to a foreign country, where you can’t quite speak the language, and you don’t know where you’re going, and you’re pulled ever deeper into the inviting darkness, every trip to a foreign country can be a love affair, where you’re left puzzling over who you are and whom you’ve fallen in love with… All good trips are, like love, about being carried out of yourself and deposited in the midst of terror and wonder.”

-Pico Iyer-

***

” He didn’t think of himself as a tourist; he was a traveler.  The difference is partly one of time, he would explain.  Whereas the tourist generally hurries back home at the end of a few weeks or months, the traveler, belonging no more to one place than to the next, moves slowly, over periods of years, from one part of the earth to another.”

-Paul Bowles-

***

“Travel is not a vacation, and it is often the opposite of a rest.”

-Paul Theroux-

***

“If the customs and manners of men were everywhere the same, there would be no office so dull as that of a traveler: for the difference of hills, valleys, rivers; in short the various views in which we may see the face of the earth, would scarce afford him a pleasure worthy of his labour…”

-Henry Fielding-

      I feel the same way! I’d be able to travel so much more if I didn’t have school!
