It is said that the dirty secret of travel is that so many go so far to feel so little. Even the Roman philosopher Horace talked of the travelers of his time, writing - “They change their sky, but not their soul.” By this he meant that the mere act of travel won’t make us better people, or change our character, if we are just rushing around without understanding what we’re looking at, or what our purpose for being there is.
