To travel is to be alive, 

but to get somewhere is to be dead, for as our own proverb says, 

β€œTo travel well is better than to arrive.” 

A world which increasingly consists of destinations without journeys between them, a world which values only getting somewhere as fast as possible, becomes a world without substance. For points of arrival are too abstract, too Euclidean to be enjoyed, and it is all very much like eating the precise ends of a banana without getting what lies in between.
