The Why Of Travel

“Should vagabonding have a patron saint, it would be the nineteenth-century poet Walt Whitman—if for no reason other than ‘Song of the Open Road,’ his infectiously joyous ode to the spirit of travel.  Born in 1819 to a working class family in New York… Whitman was particularly inspired by his daily ferry trips from Brooklyn to Manhattan, which instilled in him a lasting appreciation for the uncommon joys and vivid details of travel.  And while his later travels took him to budding American outposts such as New Orleans and Denver, it is this celebration of simple movement and possibility that gives “Song of the Open Road” its visceral and inclusive energy.” – Ralph Potts, Vagabonding

As illustrated in Vagabonding, the "why" of travel is, perhaps, best communicated through stories to prevent mincing words.  Try eloquently explaining to someone else that travel opens ones mind to different cultures, worldviews, and philosophies; travel opens ones heart to people of foreign places and unique traditions; travel dissolves prejudice that infect ones heart.  Travel is one of only a few things you buy that makes you richer.  Time spent traveling is one of only a few things that can never be taken away.

Journey far,

“Hitting the road to get travel out of your system rarely works, so the best remedy upon returning home is to make travel a part of your system.” – Ralph Potts
