It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you.
The journey is part of the experience — an expression of the seriousness of one’s intent. One doesn’t take the A train to Mecca.
I will be taking a two week break from blogging from today. I will be leaving for France for a two week holiday and decided that unless something earth shattering happens while I am on holiday, I would rather not publish hastily written pieces just to provide content for the Blog. Thanks to all the loyal readers and feisty participants for keeping me on my toes over the past several years. I will be back in two weeks, hopefully rejuvenated and inspired. As we say in Afrikaans: “Dis totsiens, maar nie vaarwel.”BACK TO TOP
