Berjalan Seperti Rolf Potts

"It is too fatal to know too much at the outset: boredom comes as quickly to the traveler who knows his route as to the novelist who is overcertain of his plot."

Itu kata-kata Paul Theroux, penulis buku "To the Ends of the Earth."

Kata-kata yang boleh diserap intinya sebagai, "Tahu terlalu banyak dan rasa bosan itu akan segera bertandang, apatah lagi, apabila kita sudah terlebih tahu tentang apa yang akan dibuat."

Ini sebenarnya antara 31 petikan kata-kata yang digemari Rolf Potts, penulis buku "Vagabonding: An Uncommon Guide to the Art of Long-Term World Travel".

Baru lima minit yang lalu saya mengenali Rolf Potts ini selepas menjawab kuiz di blog Anne.


I travel like Rolf Potts !

Ada perasaan mahu sambar pula bukunya, selepas membaca komen ini :)

Kata Tim Cahill, penulis buku "Hold the Enlightenment",

"Potts encourages us to think about travel in a way that has been almost lost. He wants us to wander, to explore, to embrace the unknown and finally, to take our own damn time about it. I think this is the most sensible book of travel related advice ever written."

PS: Bertungkus-lumus menyiapkan manuskrip travel ringkas yang sudah dijanjikan kepada penerbit Jun ini. Manuskrip ini adalah projek penulisan bersama 4 wanita backpackers lain, Insya Allah.
