Paul Theroux quote from Ghost Train To The Eastern Star.

What an apt quote from my latest book……

“You think of travellers as bold, but our guilty secret is that travel is one of the laziest ways on earth of passing the time.  Travel is not merely the business of being bone idle, but also an elaborate bumming evasion, allowing us to call attention to ourselves with our conspicuous absence while we intrude upon other people’s privacy – being actively offensive as fugitive freeloaders.”
