Welcome!

Why do I travel? Why do I travel with my family when it would be cheaper and easier to just stay home? Well, there are many reasons, but for my first post I thought I’d let some other, much more eloquent people speak for me:

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

“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

“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson

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

And, of course, my favourite travel quote, the one that inspired the title of this blog,

“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 harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

And if that wasn’t motivation enough to travel, I’ll wrap up with a tiny sampling of what’s out there to be explored:
