Always Journeying to Someplace New Gets Old Fast

Nice New York Times  interview with author Daniel Klein about the wonders of the prolonged stay abroad, instead of perpetually chasing “new” travel destinations and experiences.

(Klein’s most recent book is “Travels with Epicurus: A Journey to a Greek Island in Search of a Fulfilled Life“.)

An excerpt from the interview:

There’s something about old age that can induce the patience needed to gradually sink beneath the surface of a new environment. Instead of trying to keep track of constantly changing scenes, we can delve into a single scene. Yum.
