  1. Hey, great article. You described the feeling perfectly.

  2. Beware, wanderer, the road is walking too (paraphrased from Rilke)

    Nicely written and explored. I always imagined during my trips abroad – and mine were “trips”, none less than four months – that somehow it was only I that had changed. But in my absence, those at home also evolved . . . and when we came back together, we had catching up to do on both sides :)

    And yes, keeping that flame alive, the flame that only travel can ignite, is a challenge. If you don’t get it ‘right’ this time, you might just have to go again . . . and again . . . :)
