Colin THUBRON ... Shadow of the Silk Road (2006)

Why travel?
“You go to touch on human identities, to people an empty map. You have a notion that this is the world’s heart. You go to encounter the protean shapes of faith. You go because you are still young and crave excitement, the crunch of your boots in the dust; you go because you are old and need to understand something before it’s too late.” Colin Thubron, in Shadow of the Silk Road (2006)
