A year ago today, I set off on my ’round-the-world journey! How fast a year flies. I can vividly remember the emotions I was feeling that day – both excited and nervous. Also, completely oblivious to the Super Bowl bonanza that was happening. Flash forward a year, and that hasn’t changed.
At any rate, today I’m launching a new weekly series – the Sunday Seven. First out of the gate – seven of my favourite travel quotes. Some are serious, some funny, but all hold lots of meaning for me.
- “Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.” – Paul Theroux
- “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
- “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
- “Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
- “I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be.” – Douglas Adams
- “Anything we fully do is an alone journey.” – Natalie Goldberg
- “Airplane travel is nature’s way of making you look like your passport photo.” – Al Gore (probably my personal favourite!)
