Thanks for your comment, Michiel.
I was just trying to explain that -to me and concerning photography-  
the road is at least as important as the destination.
Almost the same as what you are saying:

(quoting Michiel)
In my opinion the photograph itself is not so important for amateurs  
like us. Of course it is very nice when we make a good photograph but  
for me the process has become much more important.
I think I'm also into your Eastern way of photographing more and more.
Now a days it can easily take me an half hour before the shutter  
clicks, then the developing, printing, washing and toning of the  
print. In the end, sometimes I don't even show the print to other  
people because I already had my fun and don't care that much anymore.
