Bon mot for the week

"If you know you're never going to see a place again, you can make whatever you want out of your experience there. Living in a place for an extended period requires commitment, responsibility, routines, compromises. Travelling is a series of one-night stands; home is a relationship."

That last sentence is, as they say, the money quote. Golden!

Glad you liked it John.

I was trying to encapsulate why I find travel invigorating, but ultimately somewhat unsatisfying - while recognising that some people prefer it to staying in one place.
