Travel is

“Travel is little beds and cramped bathrooms.
It’s old television sets and slow Internet connections.
Travel is extraordinary conversations with ordinary people.
It’s waiters, gas station attendants, and housekeepers becoming the most interesting people in the world.
It’s churches that are compelling enough to enter.
It’s McDonald’s being a luxury.
It’s the realization that you may have been born in the wrong country.
Travel is a smile that leads to a conversation in broken English.
It’s the epiphany that pretty girls smile the same way all over the world.
Travel is tipping 10% and being embraced for it.
Travel is the same white T-shirt again tomorrow.
Travel is accented sex after good wine and too many unfiltered cigarettes.
Travel is flowing in the back of a bus with giggly strangers.
It’s a street full of bearded backpackers looking down at maps.
Travel is wishing for one more bite of whatever that just was.
It’s the rediscovery of walking somewhere.
It’s sharing a bottle of liquor on an overnight train with a new friend.
Travel is ‘Maybe I don’t have to do it that way when I get back home.’”

- Nick Miller

  1. Well this is just lovely. I'm always a sucker for the classic, "Not all those who wander are lost."

  2. Love this... only, I disagree with the McDonalds comment... I see what is meant by it being luxury and that this has different meanings to different people in different countries in different circumstances, but I just don't think McDonalds is that important... or luxurious... I'd rather eat local cuisine any day, and actually I avoid McDonalds when I travel (and pretty much at home too haha!).
    I'm also loving that Oscar Wilde quote you used... about having something to read while on the train. :)

  3. A travel portal is most needed when you have to plan a vacation. This portal has done a great job by initiating this market. This will be beneficial for most of the people. This will also enhance the value of this travel portal. I wish you all the success ahead. Thanks for sharing.:)
