Loneliness is an integral part of travelling. I used to think it was the downside to traveling, but now I realize it is a necessary educative part of it to be embraced.

Most vagabonds I know don’t ever want to find the culprit

The pursuit you see and never the arrest.

For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven’t tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It’s probably worth it.

Amelia E. Barr
