Travels with Herodotus comment by Ewa Janisz.
by Ewa Janisz
A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable. "Travels with Herodotus" by Ryszard Kapuściński
I came across this quote long ago and immediately realised it was something that I can identify myself with; something that reflects my 'idea’ and 'philosophy' of travelling. I believe that a journey once started is not over once we come back physically. Rather, it resonates within us, intensifies, influences us on many levels, and makes us crave more.
