Thoughts on traveling:
As a homeschooling mom, traveling is great to cover all the senses: We see, hear, do, and even get to taste!
"The use of traveling is to regulate imagination with reality, and instead of thinking of how things may be, see them as they are." Samuel Johnson
"It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller." Ibn Battuta
"A journey's best memories are not of the places you visit, but the people you met while getting there" and I must add to this quote: ...and the people you meet on your way back home!
"We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us" Anonymous
"Better to see something once, than to hear about it a thousand times" Asian Proverb
"There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign"
"The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun" Alex McCandless.
