Pete Lewis on Travel

Malcolm tipped me off to this great article from Phoresia.org on surfer/zine producer Pete Lewis (of Foulweather). Over the next few days I'll be posting my four favorite quotes/ideas.

"In general, I think travel can be way overrated. Some of the most profound people I’ve met have barely left the town they are from and I’ve met some complete ignoramuses who’ve seen the world. I’m not interested in getting a Starbucks in Shanghai or eating MacDonald’s in Dubai. I am interested in what books my neighbour reads and why even though we both obviously like Black Flag we’ve never shared a cup of tea or a pint of beer."
