WHY WE TRAVEL
We no longer travel because it is “the thing” to go abroad. Just at present, as a matter of fact, it is more fashionable to stay at home. But – means permitting – we must travel, and this is for the following reasons:
to get away from things
to realize the limitation of our own views.
to be able to improve conditions at home
to appreciate the various kinds of beauty in the world
to find our level internationally
to have something to talk about it
to have something to look back upon.
and last, but not least, in order
… to appreciate home.
