This so unique Spirit of Travel

…”I was already feeling the familiar thrill of of beginning a journey, the sense of relief that always fills me when I know that I can not be reached, that I am not booked or expected anywhere, that I have no commitment except those created by chance. How wonderful is it to mix with a crowd as an ordinary traveler, free from one’s own role, from one self’s image, which at times can be a cage as tight as that of the body; to be sure you won’t meet anyone with whom you have to make conversation, and to feel free to send to the devil the first person who tries to start one“.

    1. 😉 My pleasure! I would have loved to write those words. But what really matters is that I have felt them, eventually 😉 A long time ago, when the word WiFi was not even invented (I know.. I know …:P)

      1. No peer pressure to post anything on IG or FB (and now I know I look like a prehistoric specimen !)

  2. And the lines you are mentioning are so incredibly well written. No mask required, you are a nobody again, and this is the ultimate freedom!

    1. I could totally relate to his words.. loooong time ago though 😉 I would freak out not be reachable for days when traveling with the kids ..
