And the further he went,
the longer
was his return journey.

These lines salute the traveller, close to Utrecht Central Station. I once made a trip around the world, from Amsterdam Airport to Los Angeles, San Francisco, Hawaii, Manilla, Kuala Lumpur and finally on to Amsterdam Airport.
From Amsterdam Airport -> to Los Angeles -> and San Francisco -> via Hawaii -> to Manilla -> and Kuala Lumpur to finally -> proceed to final destination Amsterdam Airport
The further I went, the more redundant the journey back became. It was a journey with no point of return. The outbound journey ended at home. Are the lines more of a warning about a growing emotional distance? He who travels too far, loses the home to end the journey?

Till next nut,
