"We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our
hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little
we can, in our ignorance and knowledge,to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we
travel, in essence, to become young fools again - to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.
We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic to creativity. When we get home,
home is still the same. But something in our mind has been changed, and that changes everything."
-Pico Iyer & Jonah Lehrer
