  • What is it about travel that makes it so addictive?

    I've always wondered why. I love it when I am out on the road, foot loose and fancy free. I hate it when trips end.

    Is it the road? The views? The places? The journey itself?

    I think its all this and the most important aspect - people. Its the people you meet that makes the biggest difference.

    And then there are times when you see the most random faces and end up being able to relate to them. Or recognize them even. Eye contact, an exchange of a glance, a stare, a casual smile - we interact more with strangers than we realize.

    After all, its just 6 Degrees of separation.
