I grew up in an era of thinking of travel as escape. The idea that you could conceivably have a new life, go somewhere, fall in love, have little children under the palm trees.
Travel magazines are just one cupcake after another. They're not about travel. The travel magazine is, in fact, about the opposite of travel. It's about having a nice time on a honeymoon, or whatever.
Winter is a season of recovery and preparation.

The travel impulse is mental and physical curiosity. It's a passion. And I can't understand people who don't want to travel.

I am happy being what I am.
