Quote of the week No. 27 : On travel

In Carmine Superiore today we have sunshine with clouds. Cool this morning as the last few mornings.

Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894), Scottish writer and traveller...

"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move."

I have to say I agree. Although the great romance of Victorian travel is over, there's still something about being on the move. Perhaps it's the gypsy in me that cries out to be on the road, and in the absence of a cart and a country lane, an airport departure lounge with a view of the mountains will have to do!

I would have to agree. It's just something about moving - then coming back with memories and experiences that last a lifetime.

Ditto... I just love journeys and journeying :)

Are you travelling - physically or in your mind?

Hi LadyFi : the answer is - both. But now I'm back. :-)

I just can't can't get enough of travel and start to feel restless when it is absent in my life :)
