Travel Map

So many places to see, so little time… Here’s a couple of my favourite travel quotes:

I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag

If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” — James Michener

 

 

My Air Travel Map partially helps to explain why I no longer enjoy flying. These days I would gladly go instead by cruise ship or train if I could!

 A few more travel quotes I like:

“When preparing to travel, lay out all your clothes and all your money. Then take half the clothes and twice the money.” — Susan Heller

“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”— Gustave Flaubert

“Travel is like love, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.” — Pico Iyer

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine

“All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveller learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.” – Paul Fussell

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

“Once you have travelled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” – Pat Conroy

“Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.” – Benjamin Disraeli
