‘Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.’ – Gustave Flaubert
Travel, it seems to me, is many things to many people. For some, it’s a necessity as grave and serious as the air we breathe and the food we eat. For others, it’s a long-awaited reward for something good or a much-needed escape from something bad. Travel can be either a change of scenery or a return home; a fond farewell or a warm hello (and let’s be honest: at its best it’s both). Travel is a far-flung journey to a foreign land, it’s a quick trip to a neighbouring city, it’s a brief walk in the park. Travel is many things to many people, but for all, it’s a story. Even if they don’t quite know it yet. And for us here at the Essential Journal, it’s the theme of this month’s issue. Enjoy.
