Further thoughts on the purpose of travel


Some more thoughts re: expectations of journey. I wish to travel in a manner beyond visiting beautific sites and snapping pictures in order to show that I was there. I wish to become somewhat immersed in the lifestyle there, to gain a new perspective on life as a greater whole by being able to place myself into another self there and seeing everything new again from that perspective. To access, in other words, new areas yet untravelled within myself. To be snapped out of habitual expectation and brought into fresh vision through the induction of cultural and social alienation. There are many things to see there, and to be sure, I wish to see these things, such as Machu Piccu. But what I am most looking forward to meeting are the people who live in these places.
