365 Days, Day 274

I travel because I like to move from place to place, I enjoy the sense of freedom it gives me, it pleases me to be rid of ties, responsibilities, duties, I like the unknown; I meet odd people who amuse me for a moment and sometimes suggest a theme for a composition; I am often tired of myself and I have a notion that by travel I can add to my personality and so change myself a little. I do not bring back from the journey quite the same self that I took (W. Somerset Maugham)

He who would travel happily must travel light (Antoine de Saint-Exupery 1900 - 1944)

Quote 1 resonates with me. Quote 2, hmm that requires planning and thinking and… sorry, can’t do it. I need more than just my pillow…
