Howard and Lynda travel blog
We recently read a wonderful book, "Mexican Days" by Tony Cohan, which recounts his personal journey as well as being a great source for travel and adventure to some "off the beaten path" destinations.

In a few paragraphs we confirmed what Tony calls his "Restless Fiesta" as a malady we most definitely suffer. He writes:

"Now the fact was I no longer knew why I was out there traveling. I was out there because I was out there. In the grip of a pleasurable indefinition, floating in a brine of uncertainty, all notions of home, nation, and work had become fluid and conditional. This seemed to me an entirely appropriate state, matching reality. I felt I could carry on like this endlessly, moving from place to place. If there was some pathology at play (or at work), it struck me as a solution more than a problem. 'Episodes of sudden, unexpected and purposeful travel from home,' in Merck's words. If 'dissociative fugue' was flight away from, this felt more like flight toward some ever-receding horizon." AMEN!


So let the fugue continue!
