From ‘The Turk who loved Apples and other tales of losing my way around the world’ by Matt Gross

In Vietnam, hierarchy is built into the language. Everyone is either your superior or your inferior, and there’s no one word for “you.”

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.”
-          Mark Twain.

“All journeys have secret destinations of which the travelers is unaware.”
-          Martin Buber

“Not all those who wander are lost.”
-          J.R.R. Tolkien.

….. “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read but one page.”
