One of my duties at BootsnAll is to populate our travel inspiration site, Why Go. I love Why Go - partly because it gives me a chance to feed my love of photography and quotations, and mostly because it's not a question (why go?) but a statement. That changes the entire meaning of the site for me.
At any rate, someone on the message boards posted a link to this slideshow treat on the New York Times Travel site, and it's of a similar ilk as Why Go. It's not about where we go or what we do once we get there - it's just about the going.
