There are numerous paths. The well trodden, the unexplored. Whichever one you take, you may discover or see something differently than the last person. Who knows? The only way is to take that step and see what you see.
So much of travel is the exploration of the explored. While I find inspiration in the explorers of ages past, be it Leif Erikson, Ferdinand Magellan or Ernest Shackleton, these days it's hard to find something that hasn't already been found. You might just end up discovering another part of yourself while out exploring the world.
