I never get tired of it, the thrill of discovery. I’ve talked to some people who, with some regret in their voices, bemoan the fact that there are no longer any blank spots on the map.

I disagree.

The entire map is blank until you see it. Descriptions are faulty, pictures lie like rugs, and people are falliable.

No place exists until you have seen it.
