The reason which set you wandering is ever at your heels. What pleasure is there in seeing new lands? Or in surveying cities and spots of interest? All your bustle is useless.
Do you ask why such flight does not help you? It is because you flee along with yourself. You must lay aside the burdens of the mind; until you do this, no place will satisfy you.
You need a change of soul rather than climate.
Read Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“Limitless” thoughts by Danna Faulds resonate with my heart.
Sun says, “Be your own illumination.”
Wren says, “Sing your heart out, all day long.”
Stream says, “Do not stop for any obstacle.”
Oak says, “When the wind blows, bend easily, and trust your roots to hold.”
Stars say, “What you see is one small slice of a single modest galaxy. Remember that vastness cannot be grasped by mind.”
Ant says, “Small does not mean powerless.”
Silence says nothing. In the quiet everything comes clear.
I say, “Limitless.” I say, “Yes.”
