The travel bug is biting again, and I have a problem: I just got back from a trip a few months ago. I am finding that that more I travel, the more I want to travel. Of course there is the practical side of working around my children’s schedules, the cost of travel, and so on. I find that the best thing for me to stave off the travel bug is to research for my next trip and to read about travel and other cultures/countries. On that note, I borrowed a few books from the library related to travel. One I am reading now is National Geographic’s “Abroad at Home”, which highlights places in America which make the traveler feel like they are somewhere else in the world. I love that idea, since international travel is very pricey and just not something I can do right now. I have a few travel quotes I wanted to share as I believe they echo the thoughts of fellow travelers.
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
“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
“I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.” -Anthony Bourdain
