When you travel you experience in a very practical way the act of rebirth. You confront completely new situations, the day passes more slowly and on most journeys you don’t even understand the language the people speak. So you are like a child just out of the womb. You begin to attach much more importance to the things around you because your survival depends upon them. You begin to be more accessible to others because they may be able to help you in different situations. At the same time, since all things are new to you, you see only the beauty in them and you feel happy to be alive!
Paulo Coelho
