The open road calls out to me.
Been sitting still too long.
There’s so much out there left to see,
It’s time for moving on.
The tank is full, the case is packed,
The cooler, full of food.
Straight on ahead, no going back—
I’m in a driving mood.
Hello, and welcome to my blog, in which I share my “driving reasons” to travel, and to help you find your own.
So, why travel? First, is to go somewhere, and to view other places.
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
― Gustave Flaubert
― Robert Louis Stevenson,
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
― Ernest Hemingway
― Anita Desai
Second, is to view yourself, your culture, and your society.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”
― Mark Twain,
― Terry Pratchett,
