Teachings of the Lone Traveller IV
“Travel far enough, you meet yourself.”
― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas
You see many people who have this passion of travelling alone. They can just pick up a backpack and leave on a moments notice. Why do they do that, I wondered?? Then it hit me!!!! (Though I might be wrong, I am off course human)
They are looking for something. They are in search of something constantly. Some for inner peace, some for the simple joy of new places where no one knows them, etc. They want to get lost in a world unknown to them. But at the same time, they seem to be running from something as well. What we call “REALITY” . The thrill of travelling to a new place just lets them leave behind all the worries. The rush of looking round and learning new stuff just leaves no room for the harsh truths of life which they want to forget. Be it job problems, friends, family or love. Sometimes its just better to take a break from all the hassles !!
Some people resort to other addictions to take a break, some just TRAVEL !!
