Hundreds of reasons call for departure. We start making contact with other human identities to fill a blank card.

We're going to see what's going to happen.

You always have to think of Ithaca
to achieve it should be the constant thought.

who has accumulated treasure on the street,
without expecting wealth from Ithaca.
Ithaca gave you the beautiful journey
without them you would never have set out: what else do you expect?

The best trip is the one that has not yet been taken.
(Loick Peyron)

Most of us have always had a journey that is not a simple visit or vacation, but a dream.

(Cesare Pavese)

It is not true. The journey never ends. Only travelers end. And they too can extend in the memory, in the memory, in the narrative. When the traveler sat on the beach sand and said, "There is nothing else to see," he knew it was not true. The end of one journey is just the beginning of another. You have to see what you haven't seen, see what you have already seen, see in spring what you have seen in summer, see by day what you saw at night, with the sun where it was the first time rained to see the green plants, the ripe fruits, the stone that changed the places, the shadow that wasn't there.We have to go back to the steps already given, repeat them and break new ground alongside you. We have to start the journey again. Always.
(Josè Saramago)

Travel ends where lovers meet.
(William Shakespeare)

(Erri De Luca)

When you travel, you notice that the differences are lost: every city resembles all cities, places exchange information about orderly distances, a formless dust penetrates the continents.

Travel is a school of humility, it brings you to touch the limits of your own understanding, the uncertainty of the patterns and tools by which one person or culture presupposes to understand or judge another.
(Claudio Magris)

In some places in the world, your arrival or departure mysteriously expands with the emotions of those people who have arrived or left before you.
(Cees Nooteboom)

Hiking trails are built through travel.
(Franz Kafka)

Travel gives life to the senses

Travel gives your life meaning, travel gives life to your senses.
(Alexandre Poussin)

Life is a great field in which to cultivate. Travel means sowing the diversity of the earth. Travel embellishes it with the colors of the world.

When you travel, you experience the act of rebirth in a much more concrete way. We are faced with completely new situations, the day goes by slower and in most cases we do not understand the language others are speaking. This is exactly what happens to a newborn from the womb.
(Paulo Coelho)

Travel teaches disorientation, always feeling like a foreigner in life, at home too, but being a foreigner among foreigners is perhaps the only way to truly be brothers. That is why people are the destination of the trip.
(Claudio Magris)

We don't go on a trip. The journey makes us and reverses us, the journey invents us.

(Anne Sophie Swetchine)

I always thought: when I am free, without restrictions, I will travel. But I don't have any travel recipes, I stumble often, everywhere. I like to get lost, make a lot of detours. I often decide the destination along the way or change it entirely. You can't experience too many things while traveling; I think it is better to focus on little or nothing and not pay attention to monuments. In museums, just keep your eyes peeled and listen. And it's not that simple.

And then the train while traveling
who always makes us dream.
(Antonio Machado)

When you go on a motorcycle vacation, things are very different. In the car you are always in a passenger compartment; You are used to it and you don't know that all you see out of that window is just an extra dose of television. You are a passive observer and the landscape flows very boringly next to you within a frame. The frame is gone with the motorcycle. You are in full contact with everything. You are no longer a spectator, you are in the scene and the feeling of presence is tangible.
(R. M. Pirsig)

Traveling is different to returning to the way you started

Whoever returns from a trip is never the same person who left.

The heart with bitter desire and bitter pain

(Rosa Luxemburg)

If you find that your life is meaningless, commit suicide or travel.

Under the thick blue
some sea birds fly from the sky;
and never rest: because all the pictures mean: "continue"
(Eugenio Montale)

A journey does not begin the moment we leave, nor does it end the moment we reach our destination. It actually starts much earlier and never ends as the bond of memories continues to flow even after it has stopped. It's the travel virus, an essentially incurable disease.

To travel is to give life to life.

After living in a world where everything is authentic and important, where every day has the intensity of a year, I suddenly find myself among people chasing worthless things that are dominated by consumerism etc. Well ... I seem crazy! After a while I also go back to the tracks, otherwise I would feel inappropriately, but I do it with a stuffy nose, like apnea, because I don't accept what the company is offering me. I take it because I know it's the price I'll have to pay to get the rest back.

(Andrej Tarkovskij)

Where are you going? Throw the card away! Why do you want to know where you are right now? Okay: In all cities, in shopping centers, at bus or subway stations, people are used to being taken by the hand by the signs. There is almost always a sign with a colored dot, an arrow on the map that says out loud, “You are here”. Even in Venice, all you have to do is look up and see lots of yellow signs with arrows telling you: go beyond, don't be confused, to the train, to San Marco, to the academy. Leave her alone, let her go Why do you want to fight the maze? Do it once. Don't worry, let the road determine your own path and not the path by which you choose the roads. Learn to hike, hike. Confused. Loitering.

Every place is a mine. Just let yourself go, take your time, sit in a tea house and watch people walk by, go to a corner of the market, get your hair done and then follow a dock that can begin with a word at the end of a dock Meeting the friend of a friend of a person you have just met and the most boring, most insignificant place in the world becomes the mirror of the world, the window of life, the theater of humanity, in front of which one could stand without stopping without need, somewhere else to go there. The mine is exactly where you are: all you have to do is dig.
(Tiziano Terzani)

You don't go anywhere without first dreaming of a place. And vice versa, without traveling sooner or later, all dreams end or you are always stuck in the same dream.

The presumption of omniscience with the Internet has led to the false and arrogant belief that the physical exertion of travel has become superfluous.

The world still exists in all its diversity. However, this has little to do with the illusory kaleidoscope of tourism. Perhaps one of our most urgent tasks is to learn to travel again, possibly close to us, to learn to see again.

The fact of having gone as far away as possible somehow ends the journey. The only next step would be no return.

Go alone
Take a card with you
Travel easily
If you need to take a cell phone with you, avoid using it,
Travel by land
Cross a border on foot
Keep a journal
Read a novel that has nothing to do with where you are now
Make friends with someone
(Paul Theroux)

Change is the only thing that makes life worth living. Never park your life at a desk. What follows are ulcers and heart problems.
