Why “Reading the Book Travel”?

“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page”.

Or so (apparently) said St. Augustine, if we can believe that someone just happened to record the moment for posterity.

Anyway, I’ve always rather liked the expression. For one thing, it ties in nicely with another passion of mine, reading. For another thing, I love the concept of the world as a great big book full of pages, just waiting for me to turn them.

The world is indeed a book – and I intend to read as many pages as I can.
