"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has courage to lose sight of the shore" Andre Gide
"To those who can dream... there is no such place as faraway"
"A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving"
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page"
You never realize how far you have reached until you go back to where it all started. Then places become a kind of a two-way mirror, taking you back to the origins while simultaneously propelling you into newer galaxies. That is the core of a traveller. An ability to burn timelines for each time you have visited a place, you carry back with you bits of the past as you have brought the future to it.
