As with all things contract, there is a damn good chance that nothing will ever come of it, but I know that and with that in mind I still like to get excited about places I've never been to before even if I end up never going there, IYSWIM, call it a perk of the job ;-p
Here's the philosophy that I've been using for while (stolen from Robert Louis Stevenson)
"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travels' sake.
The great affair is to move, to get down off this featherbed of civilisation
and to find the globe granite underneath and strewn with cutting flints"
