108 things (2)

The last time I wrote a post like this was in October — right when summer was finally over, autumn was coming into full force, and I apparently was in love with 108 things. So I thought it would a fun thing to do again. To remember all the other things I love. 108 more of them, in fact.

14. “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.”
