I can identify with this very much. The introduction from Michael Palin’s Diary “Travelling to Work”
“This is the rough and ready on the spot account of a fundamentally wary and conservative soul drawn to risk like a moth to a flame. Someone who is convinced that his gut instinct is more important than all the advice in the world.
Someone grounded, safe and who can be tempted to almost anything. I don’t like to be confined to the road ahead, that I’m drawn to the back street and side alleys, to the quirky ordinaries of everyday life, to the unexpected, to the unexplored. When I’m not travelling I experience something very similar as soon as something looks predictable or secure or straightforward I hop off to one side lured by whatever it is I have never done before.
