Mary Anne Radmacher
“I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.”
Mary Anne Radmacher

Bill Bryson
“But that's the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don't want to know what people are talking about. I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”
Bill Bryson, Neither Here nor There: Travels in Europe

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

Jack Kerouac
“...but I preferred reading the American landscape as we went along. Every bump, rise, and stretch in it mystified my longing.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Richard Francis Burton
“Of the gladdest moments in human life, methinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of Habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the slavery of Civilization, man feels once more happy.”
Richard Francis Burton
