Writing Prompt #3 – Leaving the Comforts of Home – Brutality or Invigorating?

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things ¡V air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky ¡V all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”

-Cesare Pavese

As a study abroad student living in a foreign host country, can you identify with this statement? Why or why not?
