A good traveler

Just listening to the angelic voice of Loreena McKennitt while watching her "Nights from the Alhambra" concert. It's a great experience in its own right and I recommend it wholeheartedly, but that's not what prompted me to write this entry. During the concert, she mentions this saying by Lao Tzu that describes the way I like to travel very well: A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving. I don't know if I'm that good a traveler, but I always considered unpredictability an essential part of every journey and the destination just a prime mover to make me point the wheel in certain direction and stat rolling. As long as I'm having fun and gathering new experiences it doesn't really matter if I'll reach the destination. The trip is the destination.
