In the mood to travel

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go.  I travel for travel's sake.  The great affair is to move.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson

 The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.  ~St. Augustine

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience.  The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him.  He goes "sight-seeing."  ~Daniel J. Boorstin  

The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway.  ~Henry Boye 

Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.  ~Seneca

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things. ~Henry Miller

When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable. ~Clifton Fadiman

Travel is the frivolous part of serious lives, and the serious part of frivolous ones.  ~Anne Sophie Swetchine 
A guest never forgets the host who had treated him kindly. ~Homer 
One always begins to forgive a place as soon as it's left behind. ~Charles Dickens 
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
If you reject the food ignore the customs fear the religion and avoid the people you might better stay at home.  ~James A. Michener
