Far away, far away...

"Far away, far away,
Are not all lovely things far away?
As far at least lies that valley,
as the bedridden sun in the luminous east,
The paralyzed mountains, the sickly river...
Are not all things lovely far away,
Are not all things lovely far away?

Edgar Allen Poe - Valley of Unrest"

Fall wakens the secret explorer in me. I have this urge to go to some beautiful place far away. This picture of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile and the Edgar Allan Poe Poem, which Lou Reed covered in his Raven Album describe my feelings these days perfectly.
