    Travel Quote: We travel

    As you’ve probably figured out by now, I love travel quotes. They simply resonate with me. That’s why I share them here, hoping they will inspire someone else as they do me. Without further ado, today’s travel quote… “We travel, not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” This quote is so true. There is so much in life that I don’t want to miss out on. I’m afraid if I don’t do it now, life will pass me by, and I will have missed everything that I wanted to see and do. I often feel like I’ve already wasted so much of my life because I…

    Travel Quote: Travel Makes You Richer

    “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” is one of my favorite all-time travel quotes. I truly believe it. I have been learning a lot lately about myself and my life, and I’ve come to realize that I’ve been wasting my money on useless junk for so long that it’s only made me miserable and broke. I don’t feel richer because I have more stuff. I don’t feel happier. What I do feel is burdened. I have to clean it and take care of it. It gets in my way and I have to find places to put it. It’s just stuff that I thought I…

    Travel Quote: A Mind Stretched

    Travel Quote- “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions” Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. I love this quote because I believe that travel does change the way we think and feel about the world around us. It opens our minds to new places and people. New possibilities are imagined. The world becomes our classroom to build upon all of our earlier learning. I know that I would feel like I was missing so much if I hadn’t traveled. This world is such an amazing place. I am awestruck all the time when I think about how great and majestic it is.…

    Travel Quote: The Road is Life

    The travel quote “The Road is Life” resonates with me because I feel that deep down in my soul. When I’m on my way somewhere, anywhere, I feel alive. I don’t know what to expect, but I am so excited to go there. I want to see and learn new things. Sometimes it is nice to arrive quickly because I am so anxious, that I just can’t wait to get there. But, I have to remind myself to enjoy the journey and not get ahead of myself. I do prefer to travel slowly and soak up every bit of the journey that I can. I do enjoy air travel as…

    Travel Quote: Someday is an illusion

    I agree wholeheartedly with this travel quote, Someday is an illusion and if you wait for it to arrive in order to do something, you’re going to be waiting forever. It’s never the perfect time. Too many people want to wait until they have enough money, or the get a better job, or the kids are older, and they waste their life waiting. They say “I’ll do it someday”, but someday never comes. They end up regretting the choices they never made and the trips they never took. I don’t want to spend my life waiting and wishing for someday to arrive. I want to take advantage of the time…

    New Orleans, Louisiana: Loving the Big Easy

    New Orleans, Louisiana (aka NOLA, aka “The Big Easy”) is a city I love a lot more than I ever thought I would. However, I shouldn’t have been surprised. Uniqueness and mystery cover the city like a cloak, waiting for visitors to discover the surprises within.  My First Trip The first time I went to New Orleans, it was just a stopover for a cruise that was leaving from the Julia Street Cruise Terminal. I didn’t really get to see much of the city itself. I was there for the evening before the cruise was to leave port. Not only was I there for a short time, I was extremely…
