The world is a book,and those who do not travel read only a page
My friend Alison who is living in New Zealand sent me a card today with this beautiful quote in it.
In Catholic school I developed a minor obsession with Saint Augustine. His life, overcoming adversity and this quote.
This card, with this message came at the perfect time. Travel is indeed the great experience maker. Like reading a book, travel expands the scope of a person's world. Unlike a book where you draw upon your imagination, travel engages the senses in an up close, tactile way.
Travel is wonder, exploration and life in the moment!
Travel slows us down, grounds and inspires.
You can go as far or as near as you're comfortable, the point is to simply go. Go see. Go experience. Go and live!
