What's the point of travel?
It's to help make us into better people.
It's a sort of therapy.
Without anything mystical being meant by this,
all of us are, in one way or another, on what could be termed "an inner journey".
That is, we're trying to develop in particular ways.
In a nutshell, the point of travel
is to go to places that can help us in our inner evolution.
The outer journey should assist us
with the inner one.
Every location in the world
contains qualities that can support
some kind of beneficial change inside a person.
Take these 200 million year old stones in America's Utah Desert.
It's a place, but looked at psychologically.
It's also an inner destination,
a place with perspective,
free of preoccupation with the petty and the small-minded.
Somewhere imbued with calm and resilience.
Religions used to take travel much more seriously than we do now.
For them, it was a therapeutic activity.
In the Middle Ages,
when there was something wrong with you,
you were meant to head out for a pilgrimage
to commune with relics
of a saint or a member of the holy family.
If you had toothache,
you'd go to Rome, to the Basilica of San Lorenzo
and touch the arm bones of Saint Apollonia, the patron saint of teeth.
If you were unhappily married,
you might go to Umbria
to touch the shrine of Saint Rita of Cascia, patron saint of marital problems.
Or, if you were worried about lightning,
you were sent to Bad Münstereifel in Germany
to touch the skull of Saint Donatus,
believed to offer help against fires and explosions.
We no longer believe in the divine power of journeys
but certain parts of the world still have a power to change and mend the wounded parts of us.
In an ideal world,
travel agencies would be manned by a new kind of psychotherapist.
They'd take care not just of the flights and the hotels,
they'd start by finding out what was wrong with us
and how we might want to change.
The anxious might be sent to see the majestic, immemorial waves crashing into the cliffs on the west coast of Ireland.
People a bit too concerned with being admired and famous
might be sent to contemplate the ruins of Detroit.
Someone out of touch with their body
might be recommended a trip to Porto Seguro in Bahia in Brazil.
Nowadays, too often,
we head off without fully knowing what's wrong with us
or precisely understanding how our chosen destination is meant to help us.
We should become more conscious travelers
on a well articulated search for qualities that places possess,
like calm or perspective,
sensuality or rigor.
We should follow old-fashioned pilgrims
in striving to evolve our characters
according to the suggestions offered up by the places we've been to.
We need to relearn how to be ambitious about travel,
seeing it as a way
of helping us to grow into better versions of ourselves.
