Quotables: On Travel

Often I feel I go to some distant region of the world to be reminded of who I really am… Stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines, your refrigerator full of your food, your closet full of your clothes, you are forced into direct experience.  Such direct experience inevitably makes you aware of who it is that is having the experience.  That’s not always comfortable, but it is always invigorating.
- Michael Crichton, Travels

  1. Huh. Interesting thought. Personally, I think "direct experience" can be had other, more fun ways than travel. But I'm a homebody at heart. :)
