“It is better to travel well than to arrive.” – Buddha
Curiosity is the most innate of human traits, and travel is the urge to quench it. Travel is Plus Plus reminds us of this urge. In the film, visitors to Nepal say what travel means to them, including some who echo Buddha’s words, if less eloquently. It is not only good to travel, but true travel is plan-less. It is the idea of putting oneself at the mercy of one’s own fears, and to be subject to any possible mishaps dished out by the external world. It is a mindset that accepts one cannot be in control and, embracing that condition, trusting one’s ability to take it all in stride.
“Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.” – Henry David Thoreau
