The traveler sees what he sees; the tourist sees what he has come to see.
July 23rd - love to travel
A vacation is like love - anticipated with pleasure, experienced with discomfort, and remembered with nostalgia.
When we view life with traveler’s eyes we do not simply focus on what we hoped or planned to see, as a tourist might. Instead, we set aside preconceived notions and expectations. We soak in the experiences of the present moment.
Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.
I like to think that I journey through each day as a full participant, engaged deeply with the world and open to new lessons, new insights. To be utterly transformed by everything I encounter, I walk with traveler’s eyes along the blessed and sacred journey of life.
If you wish to travel far and fast, travel light. Take off all your envies, jealousies, unforgiveness, selfishness and fears.
Always remember that your present situation is not your final destination. The best is yet to come.
The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway.
The pictures today are from a little trip to the Ohio River last summer. It was beautiful!. Some days my life runs smoothly like a gentle river. Other days, I may compare it to white water rapids. Regardless of the circumstances, I know this, too, shall pass.
