“Is it possible to feel enriched and hollowed out at the same time?…I don’t feel I belong here, but I don’t know if I belong back in New York either”

“The journey changes you, It should change you. It leaves marks on memory, consciousness, heart, and body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”

-Anthony Bourdain on assignment in Malaysia for ‘No Reservations’
