What is it to travel?

I've always thought it possible to go to places as a tourist and not really 'see'. Travelling is an attitude of mind and this article sums up all I believe to be true. You will never look at your homeland the same way again.

"The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land." C. K. Chesterton

I was trying to leave a comment here earlier today when my Internet connection went out. This is a fantastic article! We live in a huge county (about 72 miles long) and I know there is so much we haven't seen even though we've lived here for so long.
