“It’s the most exciting thing about travel to me. You’re constantly wrong. You’re constantly challenged by your own preconceptions. You’re forced to relearn such basic, basic things. Words you thought you knew the definition for become completely changed: the word work, the word hunger, the word generosity. Or you think an entire country’s going to be one way and then it’s another way. I like being wrong in that respect.”—
When you’re stuck in one place, in one situation, in one particular way of life, you become comfortable. You know everything inside out, yes. But if you’re there for too long, without even a small vacation, you sometimes forget that you’re a part of something bigger than your life, your city, your country. Traveling humbles even the biggest know-it-all.
