I’m not afraid of storms, for I’m learning how to sail my ship. ~ Louisa May Alcott

Becoming Friends

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends. Maya Angelou

Passport Photos

Airplane  travel is nature’s way of making you look like your passport  photo. Al  Gore  

One Traveler

One travels more usefully when alone, because he reflects more. Thomas Jefferson

Airplane Flights

You  define a good flight by negatives: you didn’t get hijacked, you didn’t crash,  you didn’t throw up, you weren’t late, you weren’t nauseated by the food. So you  are grateful. Paul  Theroux

Travel For Travels Sake

For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.  


It is not down on any map; true places never are. ~Herman Melville  


The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience.  The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him.  He goes “sight-seeing.” ~Daniel J. Boorstin
