It is a lifelong journey which leads you to nowhere, as a craving to read without purpose or to eat without hunger - kind of disorder.

The modern equivalent is shopping.

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” –
Cesare Pavese (9 September 1908 – 27 August 1950) was an Italian poet, novelist, literary critic and translator. He is widely considered among the major authors of the 20th century in his home country.)

It is true, as the time is of the essence, the movement is of the life (I am an English student, if I commit any mistake in grammar, feel free to correct me, please)

“He used often to say there was only one Road; that it was like a great river: its springs were at every doorstep, and every path was its tributary. 'It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out of your door,' he used to say. 'You step into the Road, and if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to.” J R R Tolkien


I do not think we travel to find ourselves,
but to some of us, that is pretty much what happens at the end.

Everything is new when we go through a good journey:
smells, vistas, languages, cultures; even in ourselves there is something new.

Sadly, it is not open to everybody to see.
As Emerson once said:

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not."

Funny, for me it's totally the opposite: I hate the void and timelessness of travelling. I never catch the precise moment of the arrival, though; what's always left's only a hunch that the trip's over.

He obviously has the Restless Gene. A great article on this topic and a great quote, "The compulsion to see what lies beyond that far ridge or that ocean—or this planet—is a defining part of human identity and success." Take the time to read about the Restless Gene, you won't be disappointed.

" but to go. for travel's sake. The great affair is to move" this quotation is more than the mere literal interpretation, commonly perceived, there is a descriptive subtle indiscretion of an obscure and instigated assertion!

In all likelihood, it seems to me, a sort of hodology described in philosophy! His travel is beyond "the hodos" but into the whole universe of nascent discovery in his ideology.

The fascinating travel transcends time, space, and even death. "The great affair is to move" move is to travel.

Perhaps to him moving means living, while stopping would mean death. To me, travelling is not a goal in itself, but a means of doing certain things, but what I find most useful while travelling is observing, learning, feeling the world.
