"Here... to have a good time!"
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
The use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are.
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
