A lot of us first aspired to far-ranging travel and exotic adventure early in our teens; these ambitions are, in fact, adolescent in nature, which I find an inspiring idea… Thus, when we allow ourselves to imagine as we once did, we know, with a sudden jarring clarity, that if we don’t go right now, we’re never going to do it. And we’ll be haunted by our unrealized dreams and know that we have sinned against ourselves. Tim Cahill, Exotic Places Made Me Do It

Marz jakbyś miał żyć wiecznie, żyj jakbyś miał umrzeć dziś. Abraham Lincoln

Sprzedaj lodówkę i jedź!
Różnica między ludźmi, którzy realizują swoje marzenia, a całą resztą świata nie polega na zasobności portfela. Chodzi o to, że jedni całe życie czytają o dalekich lądach i śnią o przygodach, a inni pewnego dnia podnoszą wzrok znad książki, wstają z fotela i ruszają na spotkanie swoich marzeń.
„Gringo wśród dzikich plemion” Wojciech Cejrowski

And so I stand among you as one that offers a small message of hope, that first, there are always people who dare to seek in the margin of society, who are not dependent on social acceptance, no dependent on social routine, and prefer a kind of free-floating existence. Thomas Merton, The Asian Journal Of Thomas Merton

Before the development of tourism, travel was conceived to be like study, and its fruits were considered to be the adornment of the mind and the formation of the judgement. To travel was a student of what he sought. Paul Fussell, Abroad

Cytat dnia

We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again – to slow time down and get taken in, an fall in love once more. Pico Iyer

The pleasure of travelling consists of the obstacles, the fatigue and even the danger. What charm can anyone find in an excursion when he is always sure of reaching his destination, of having horses ready waiting for him, a soft bed, an excellent supper, and all the eases and comfort he can enjoy in his own home! One of the great misfortunes of modern life is the want of any sudden surprise, and the absence of all adventures. Everything is so well arranged. Theophile Gautier, Wandering in Spain
