The book is all about travel and the desire for adventue which is why it starts off beginning with Sal's  journey. He tells us he has "always vaguely planned but never took off" and with the coming of Dean he's able to go travelling.

Travel and the desire for adventure is essential in finding "it" and for them to get their "kicks" aswell.
