'A true journey of discovery lies not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes'
– Marcel Proust
A book and a journey that questions the nature of travel and escape. Escapism is about immersing yourself in other realities to retreat from the current situation. But is there really any freedom in escaping? Are we all hiding or seeking? Have you packed your emotional baggage?
