Just found this, an FB status from a traveler heading home from South America after 6 months —>
“The road is home to that endless flow of travellers; the seekers, explorers, the vacationers, the revelers and the nomads. The bright array of characters whose stories intersect yours for a moment, a minute, a laugh, a dance, a drink, a journey. Then too often, too soon your paths pull you apart, eventually returning to your little nook of the world. In the future you reappear in each others lives, perhaps not in person but in the tales you share.
As six months of travel comes to an end I am left with a bank account that has been emptied and heart and head that has been filled.”
“I thought I was too old to travel. Now the funny thing about that is that 5 years later I still wanted to GO and the only thing that had changed was I was then 5 years older.” ~Loretta Henderson
