Invaded The Male Sphere

“[Wanda] Forbes did, in fact, break new ground for women…She was an irrepressible and independent traveler who took risky and difficult trips, braved the hostility of the colonial officials and bureaucrats of the British empire, and invaded the male sphere of exploration, using charm, chutzpah–and her extensive network of establishment connections–to get where she wanted […]

Ocean Smells Different

“I wonder if the ocean smells different on the other side of the world” – J.A. Redmerski | Travel Quote of the Day

Headin’ Down The Atlanta Highway

“If you see a faded sign at the side of the road that says
’15 miles to the Love Shack.’

I’m headin’ down the Atlanta highway,
lookin’ for the love getaway.
I got me a car, it’s as big as a whale
and we’re headin’ on down to the Love Shack.
I got me a Chrysler, it seats about 20,
so hurry up and bring your jukebox money

The love shack is a little old place where we can get together.
Love Shack, baby” – B52’s (Love Shack) | Travel Quote of the Day

A Book Of Adventures

“We rode through a three-thousand-year-old country, saw the ruined capital of the Queen of Sheba and the underground red-rock city of Lalibela, fraternized with a tribe of leaden-skinned troglogytes living among the mountains, scrapped with brigands, outwitted crocodiles, and eventually emerged battered and in rags with a book of adventures and 1,000 feet of film” […]

The Mindset With Which We Travel

“The pleasure we derive from journeys is perhaps dependent more on the mindset with which we travel than on the destination we travel to” – Alain de Botton | Travel Quote of the Day

Every Place Is A Goldmine

“Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut. You pick up a thread – a word, a meeting, a friend of a friend of someone you have just met – and soon the […]

Every Hundred Feet

“Every hundred feet the world changes” – Roberto Bolaño | Travel Quote of the Day

A Lonely Place

“You wind back the clock several decades when you visit a Lonely Place; and when you touch down, you half expect a cabin attendant to announce, “We have now landed in Lonely Place’s Down-at-Heels Airport, where the local time is 1943 and the temperature is… frozen” – Pico Iyer | Travel Quote of the Day

Learned To Live Light

“She had learned to live light because life itself could be heavy enough” – Jackson Burnett | Travel Quote of the Day

Anarchy in the UK

“I am an antichrist, I am an anarchist.
Don’t know what I want, but I know how to get it.
I wanna destroy passerby.

‘Cause I, wanna be anarchy.

Anarchy in the UK,
it’s coming sometime and maybe.
I give a wrong time, stop at traffic line.
Your future dream is a shopping scheme

I wanna be, anarchy.
Know what I mean?
And I wanna be,
Get pissed.

– The Sex Pistols (Anarchy in the UK) | Travel Quote of the Day
