Absolutely. I think being in a strange place, being uncomforatble, allows you to grow in unimaginable ways. For some travelers, such as myself, breathers are necessary because sometimes we don't know how to just..... breathe.
So true, I think it's just more fun to try to find peace in some strange world you've never experienced before (or likely will again).
Oh yes, even in writing the piece at Matador that you referred to, I thought about my own life-long battle with itchy feet. It never takes me long once I'm in one place to dream about all the other places I could be RIGHT THIS SECOND! It is a practice in being in the here and now to appreciate the more, um, calm? aspects of life at "home." I also realize that if, I in fact made that move to that place that I've been pondering, my issues would still follow me there...
