The more side roads you stop to explore, the less likely that life will pass you by.
Travel in or through (an unfamiliar country or area) in order to learn about or familiarize oneself with it.
to investigate, study, or analyze : look into
I love to be with my family and will be spending time traveling to visit with one of my long distance son's soon. I am looking forward to the time we'll be together, but I'm afraid my exploring days are quickly coming to an end.
I am getting to the point where home is feeling more and more comfortable. I like being surrounded with the familiar things in life. I am probably selfish in thinking that there are not going to be many trips at all after this one. If they are it will be of the kind that can be done in one day and then I'll be safely home again.
I've never done much exploration in my life. Traveling only at times to see one or the other of my children. I appreciate those trips as I've never had to pay for any of them. My children provide the means and ways for me to get there.
Of course life seems to offer daily little unfamiliar and unknown territories for all of us. Whether near or far from home there are always new and sometimes difficult times to get through. I may not be much of a world explorer but I certainly have explored a lot of life.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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.
