Alain de Bottom, The Art of Travel

“It is not necessarily at home that we best encounter our true selves. The furniture insists that we cannot change because it does not; the domestic setting keeps us tethered to the person we are in ordinary life, who may not be who we essentially are.”
-Alain de Botton

From the book, The Art of Travel, Botton’s ability to bring forth the central role of travel is spot on – to find who and what we may be.
