I like the list! Thanks @mspath. Reminded me of an essay I read long long ago in a Canadian newspaper… in which the writer was explaining that *vacating* her day-to-day habits, life, etc and becoming some other version of herself (better, generally) was the goal of her “taking leave” of home and wandering off…
On this list, the ones by Paulo Coelho and Bryson are my favorites.
My favorite travel quote (on any list):
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” — Mark Twain
