三百年前一位英國的哲學家約翰.洛克,將旅行定義為:教育的最後一堂課。他認為青少年隨著父母四處去旅行是很重要的,可以藉此學習到不同的風俗與文化。相對的,法國啓蒙時期的哲學家尚.雅克.盧梭卻認為:旅行是一場鬧劇!他認為過早四處旅行,將會對年輕人有低下的影響,除非他們有非常強壯且正直的靈魂。

很久以前,旅行這個詞的含意跟休閒娛樂是扯不上關係的。反而比較常被視為是一種訓練,是一個展現個人紀律與精神力量訓練成果的機會。並且證明你在新環境下仍能訓練有素的表現出固有的文明行為。比如說:如何打招呼,如何握手,講笑話如何不逾矩,品味的多樣化等等。經由旅行去體驗不同環境下的生活經驗,並藉此能更客觀的檢視自我,而這也是旅行這個詞古典的意義!

隨著文明的進展,越來越多人集中在城市裡頭工作,旅行,也被賦予了新的意義-休閒娛樂。每過一陣子,就出門到一些風景區去,忘掉一些日常生活的事務。離的越遠,旅行好像就變的更加有意義。這也是為什麼現代人願意花這樣多的預算跟時間,持續不停的往新的目的地出發,而在心裡的深處仍然可以感受到終將回來。

300 years ago, British philosopher John Locke defined “travel” as finishing of education. He thought teenagers traveling and seeing the world with their parents were important for learning different customs and cultures. In contrast, French Enlightenment philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau said “travel” is nonsense. He said traveling at an early stage would only bring degrading influences to youths, and the very rare occasions they wouldn’t is only if one has a strong, innocent spirit.

Traveling.

Long time ago, “travel” was far from recreation. Travel used to mean “training” – an opportunity to prove how discipline your spirit has cultivated. Trying to prove your inherent behaviors in new places. How to say “hello.” How to shake hands. The limits of jokes. The ambiguity of taste. Those were the purposes of the classic “travel” – to objectively analyze yourself through life experiences in new places.

As more people started working in the society, “travel” came to acquire a new purpose – “recreation.” To put yourself in a scenic place and once in a while forget daily life. The further you are from daily life, the more uplifting your “travel” becomes. That is the reason why we allow ourselves to put in so much budget and time and keep setting off to new places, still knowing somewhere in our mind that we will come back.
