The World Is A Book And Those Who Do Not Travel Read Only One Page

I suffer from a really bad travel fever! Last year I was at this time already been in three different countries, but now, unfortunately, I have not traveled half in a year anywhere. But this issue is bound to come a change! Surely I'll buy a couple flight ticket for summer and travel the world over. After all, the Earth is actually quite a small place. Here for you, however, a couple of photos from last year's trip.

 All the pathos and irony of leaving one’s youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.

 People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.

A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.


No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.

Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.

A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.


Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.

We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.

The road goes on forever, but the party never ends.

To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.

  I've ridden an elephant once in my life.
But i wanna do it again. 

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.

Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.

If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.

Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
