“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt. It’s a rush of fragments, all jostling for attention. Some good, some bad, some pleasurable – and some excruciating to remember.”
-Anthony Bourdain in The Nasty Bits: Collected Varietal Cuts, Usable Trim, Scraps, and Bones
