GoThere

“In other words, where we are is vital to who we are. By ‘where’, I’m speaking not only of our physical environment but also of our cultural environment. Culture is the sea we swim in- so pervasive, so all consuming, that we fail to notice its existence until we step out of it. It matters more than we think.”

-Eric Weiner from The Geography of Bliss-

***

“Don’t be afraid that something happens to you. Be afraid that nothing happens to you. Nothing noteworthy or exciting or breathtaking. I’m more afraid of putting my dreams on a shelf and later realizing I’m too jaded or too tired to live them.”

-We Are Sole Sisters-

***

“From an early age I longed to leave home and to keep going. I cannot imagine not traveling- stuck home all the time, in the confinement of a house or community or a city.”

-Paul Theroux-

***

“Now and then in travel, something unexpected happens that transforms the whole nature of the trip and stays with the traveler.”

-Paul Theroux-

***

“Life is short and the world is wide!”

-Simon Raven-

***

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.”

-Anais Nin-

***

“Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in a way they have been told to.”

-Alan Keighley-

        I don’t know if you know Tich Nhat Hanh ?
        Buddhist monk
        People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is…to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child- our own two eyes. All is a miracle

        Wherever you go, there you are.

        I like this second one – suggests people who travel to escape, still find themselves in the new place!

        Hope you like them…
