This is not really a review about a place but some quotes about travelling in general which I like a lot:

“Leaving on a jetplane,

don’t know when I’ll be back again”

Janis Joplin

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you’ll discover will be wonderful. What you’ll discover is yourself.”

by Alan Alda

"I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The proper function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them. I shall use my time."

by Jack London

"To see a World in a Grain of Sand

And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,

Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand

And Eternity in an hour."

by William Blake

Farewells are only beginnings

by George Betts

Within each of us

there are

moments of truth,

times of decision, crossroads

which affect the directions of our lives.

Farewells are only beginnings…

Whoever we are

we hold in our hearts

the memories of the times

we have lived and loved

Today is more meaningful

for it is built on

who we were

where we have been

and the paths we have travelled…

Why we travel

by Pico Iyer

"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, and fall in love once more. […]

We need sometimes to escape into open solitudes, into aimlessness, into the moral holiday of running some pure hazard, in order to sharpen the edge of life to taste hardship, and to be compelled to work desperately for a moment at no matter what. […]

Travel in that sense guides us toward a better balance of wisdom and compassion – of seeing the world clearly, and yet feeling it truly. For seeing without feeling can obviously be uncaring, while feeling without seeing can be blind.

Yet for me the first great joy of traveling is simply the luxury of leaving all my beliefs and certainties at home, and seeing everything I thought I knew in a different light, and from a crooked angle. […]

But for the rest of us, the sovereign freedom of travelling comes for the fact that it whirls you around and turns you upside down, and stands everything you took for granted on its head."
