In Ghost Train to the Eastern Star, Paul Theroux wrote, "Travel is at its most rewarding when it ceases to be about your reaching a destination and becomes indistinguishable from living your life."

In this occasional email newsletter, I'll send you stories from the road when I'm on the road. Other times, you'll get ruminations on past travels; notes on the links between place, memory, and imagination; and stories where travel meets life, art, culture, history and politics—all served up with a side of something personal and eclectic. If you like the idea of travel not so much as escapism but as a closer communion with the world, you might like this.
