Quotable Friday: from Travels with Herodotus

“A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.”

– Travels with Herodotus by Ryszard Kapuscinski

  1. What a charming quote, thank you for sharing. I really dig the phrase, “film of memory”. Often when I have wanderlust and am not able to travel, I dig up my films of memory and quietly re-live my travels and adventures.

    • It’s also nice to think that our journeys never really end. We always have the memories, and we have dreams of future adventures to keep us going.
