why we travel

“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.” Pico Iyer personifies traveling as love. He stresses that it is similar in the ways of when you lose control and you go along for the ride, and you have to figure everything out on your own. If you let the culture control you, your travel time will have a deeper impact.
