Pat Conroy
“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.”
Pat Conroy

Douglas Adams
“It can hardly be a coincidence that no language on earth has ever produced the expression, 'As pretty as an airport.”
Douglas Adams, The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

Mark Twain
“I have found out that there ain't no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them.”
Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer Abroad

Robert Benchley
“There are two kinds of travel: first class and with children.”
Robert Benchley, Pluck and Luck

W. Somerset Maugham

In the same way there are certain places, surrounded by a halo of romance, to which the inevitable disillusionment you experience on seeing them gives a singular spice. You had expected something wholly beautiful and you get an impression which is infinitely more complicated than any that beauty can give you.

W. Somerset Maugham
