“Why We Travel”- by Pico Iyer

Excerpt of one of all times favorite read!

“The sovereign freedom of traveling comes from the fact that it whirls you around and turns you upside down, and stands everything you took for granted on its head. If a diploma can famously be a passport (to a journey through hard realism), a passport can be a diploma (for a crash course in cultural relativism). And the first lesson we learn on the road, whether we like it or not, is how provisional and provincial are the things we imagine to be universal.”

I hope you enjoy the read… Either if you’ve traveled or not you will be taken through the magical journey of..well.. travelin’
