I do not think it means what you think it means.
Whenever you become anxious or stressed, outer purpose has taken over, and you have lost sight of your inner purpose. Your state of consciousness is primary. All else is secondary.
We played our first game tonight and the question came up that we couldn't find any clarification in the rules. Once a route has traveled thru a red or green location, can either the same route (via a loop) or another colored route travel thru that same red/green location and gain the benefit (either Travel token or extra turn)?
Yes, another color expedition can pass through the same location.
And the same color expedition can pass through it again as long as it doesn't violate the rule that arrows of the same color may not run parallel (meaning they can't connect the same two adjacent cities that color already connected with one arrow).
