Reasons_Travel.jpg (56941 bytes) Augustine (354-430):
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page"

Paul Theroux: "Travel is glamorous only in retrospect."

Paul Tournier: The real meaning of travel, like that of a conversation by the fireside, is the discovery of oneself through contact with other people, and its condition is self-commitment in the dialogue."

Robert Louis Stevenson: "For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilisation, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints."

Gilbert Keith Chesterton:
(British writer early 1900’s)
"The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one’s own country as a foreign land."
