Traveling hits some like a major epiphany, when every destination seems like an island of the unknown, containing a lost archive of meaning and mystery. Despite your fruitful knowledge, there will always be an element of curiosity to compel you to propel through unfathomed waters. To burst the bubble of ignorance and celebrate ambiguity of stability and motion, travel. It holds the natural tendency to build you as well as break you, but all for the better and for the wise.

From your endless on the road life-lessons to forming a settlement with a fraction of reality, travel spoils you for life in many ways.

Well said. But doesn't hold true every time. There's a difference between sharing experience n writing just for the sake of writing..
