All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own, and if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.
One travels more usefully when alone, because he reflects more.
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.
