FROM THE BOOK ‘The Journey’s Magic’
Why is freedom so closely related to travel? Because while on the road we free ourselves of the burdens of daily routine. In daily life we actually act according to numerous patterns, models. We are defined by routine. Day in, day out, we strengthen frames of thought and build our identity. When we finally go on a trip, and transplace ourselves, we leave the constrictions of these frames behind. At home we can be a nation’s president or a rock star, but when we find ourselves in a village in Africa where no one knows us, we can ask ourselves who we really are. Our daily routine often assigns us a whole series of necessities, and our decisions in daily life aren’t exclusively ours. On the road, however, each morning brings a new start and a new package of possibilities, and with each step we take and each decision we make, we shape our destiny.
