These times that have obliged us to limit and sometimes to cancel trips and movements, reminded me of a famous sentence by Proust. It more or less sounds like this: travelling doesn’t mean looking for new places but having new eyes.
In short, Pessoa says the same of Proust, both suggest that travelling is possible even without moving physically, getting close to reality with new eyes open to the marvels of daily life. It sounds like a good advice and a positive habit, even now that the world is coming back to being close and accessible.
