In travelling by land there is a continuity of scene and a connected succession of persons and incidents. We drag, as it were, ‘a lengthening chain’ at each remove of our journey: we can trace it back link by link and we feel that the last still grapples us to home. But a wide sea voyage severs us at once. It makes us conscious of being cast loose from the secure anchorage of settled life, and sent adrift upon a doubtful world. It interposes a gulf, not merely imaginary, but real, between us and our homes; a gulf subject to tempest, and fear, and uncertainty, rendering distance palpable, and return precarious.
