I now have one website, six barely legible journals, a showbox full of 4x6" prints, and eighteen photo CDs each containing tiny outtakes from my eleven month journey in Asia. Not a day goes by that I don't have a flashback to my journey in Asia. Whether it be a site, a smell, a sound, or a taste that triggers it. There it is. The memory. Like an old friend. Bringing a smile to my face.

Here are a few quotes I wrote down while travelling in an attempt to define the undefinable - the lust for travel:

"We travel, initially to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again - to slow time down and get taken in." --Pico Iyer--

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeing new places but in seeing with new eyes." -Proust
