2014 Resolution: Travel More

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.” – Helen Keller

One of the things I regret not doing much last year was to travel. I didn't make the most of my free time then to go to a new place or to try new things. Oh well, no point dwelling in the past, right? So as part of my resolution for 2014, I made sure to include travel often and find adventure. I already booked two trips for the first half of the year, and plan on adding more before the year ends!
Below are some quotes that hopefully inspires the traveller in you to see more of 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.”
 – Mark Twain

“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.” – Jawaharial Nehru 

 “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.” – Bill Bryson 

 “Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”  – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“Experience, travel – these are as education in themselves.” – Euripides 

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.” – Steve Jobs 

“Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel’s immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.” – Ralph Crawshaw 

“You don’t choose the day you enter the world and you don’t chose the day you leave. It’s what you do in between that makes all the difference.” – Anita Septimus


Enjoy the weekend, everyone! <3
