#1: Why I travel
Because the chance to travel is the chance to disconnect, to sit in the real world without face to a smartphone like bug to a light. Because I don’t want the answers. I don’t want the internet to tell me that the stars overhead aren’t moving at all, but rather, the earth is spinning beneath me.
Instead I want to give my imagination the chance to solve the world’s riddles, to decide that the stars are moving because a friendly giant is gently tugging on the starry blinds of his bedroom window. I want to fill the blanks in my knowledge with the brightness of whimsy.
