Quote of the Day – Pico Iyer on Travel

I was looking for something special, I don’t know that I found it, but I found something that spoke to me, that made me think and I hope you enjoy today’s quote on travel. If you’re wondering who Pico Iyer is here’s the information from Wikipedia.

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again — to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more. – Pico Iyer
