Discovery vs Escape

Escape (in this context) = “a form of temporary distraction from reality or routine”

Perhaps things like Videos, Netflix, Movies and time when I can mentally zone out and not be engaged.

Discovery = “the act of finding or learning something for the first time”

This is an active process, and in my experience, I need to be engaged, to discover.

Perhaps the key differentiator between the two, is being engaged.

Discover Over Escape

Even if you decided on traveling to escape a relationship, a job, or boredom you end up discovering something about yourself.
QUESTION 1:
What have you discovered about yourself in your travels? Did you start traveling for discovery or escape? Has your reasons for traveling changed over time?
QUESTION 2:
Why do you want to travel? Is it for escape, discovery, or both?
