'Why do we travel?'

That's a good question, isn't it?  We all travel for a reason, with expectations in mind.  Sometimes we come back disappointed, other times we come back feeling as if we've been away for ages, refreshed and raring to go.  The New York Times has poised this question to its readers, who are invited to submit one or two travel photos and tell their backstory.  Prompt questions include "Where did you go and why? What’s happening in your photo? What does it mean to you?".   A selection of the best un-retouched images from 2010 will appear in the NYTimes Travel section.  This is a picture I took.  Can you guess the answers?  Share your thoughts by clicking the pencil below.
