It is strange, today, to think of traveling as charming or romantic, like it used to be. Traveling is now more like cattle herding: stand in line, show your documents, get scanned and stamped, move forward, sit down, wait for the sign etc etc etc And, by all means, as you go through all this deadening boredom: "*keep shopping*". Armed with ear plugs and eye patches, bubbles of digital music and literature, I go through all this meaningless circus grumpily. Soon enough, I will wash the airport's dirty air away in the hot shower of a new destination. Soon enough, wearing a fresh shirt, I will be walking on new streets, sampling new flavors. And the charm and the romance can start all over again.

Travel to distant lands is one of the greatest privileges we can have.

Take a backpack. Bring an empty water bottle so you can fill up and keep hydrated. An eye mask and earplugs are a must. Facial spray can help keep you fresh. Watch the full interview with Annabelle White.
