Lifestlye Why Do We Travel?

English author and philosopher Alain de Botton has written a book which explores why we are so interested in travel. It’s all a matter of perspective he suggests, so that when a flight lands in somewhere like London, half the passengers may be extremely excited to be going to a new destination, while the other half sadly anticipates a return to "boring, old home".

The problem, de Botton says, is that it doesn't matter where you travel, how luxurious it might be, or how relaxing - you can never escape yourself. And once you are back at home, life can be painfully normal. Holidays rest on the assumption that going from A to B will make you happy.

What is needed is a change of attitude and approach to life in general, not just travel. Find the joy, curiosity and wonder in each and every day, and travel will then just be a bonus. The wonder of creation and the beauty of worship will certainly change your view of everyday living.
