"We travellers," said Jakob, a fellow tourist, once, "are always busy engaging our five senses externally. Rarely do we take time to look inwards." I dismissed his comments at that time as feverishness of a restless mind. Are we travellers not lucky to experience what the world has to offer in all its forms - the sounds, the sights, the smells! Don't we gain more experience of the world around us as we engage more deeply with it? I went on about travelling to places afar, chasing more experiences, and diving a tad deeper into each sensory encounter. Years passed, and Jakob and I lost contact.
