Robert W. Service
“There's a race of men that don't fit in,
A race that can't sit still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain's crest; Their's is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don't know how to rest.”
Robert W. Service

Herman Melville
“I love to sail forbidden seas, and land on barbarous coasts.”
Herman Melville

Roman Payne
“A person does not grow from the ground like a vine or a tree, one is not part of a plot of land. Mankind has legs so it can wander.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Jan-Philipp Sendker
“Only a few days earlier he had explained to her that he did not merely read books but traveled with them, that they took him to other countries and unfamiliar continents, and that with their help he was always getting to know new people, many of whom even became his friends.”
Jan-Philipp Sendker, The Art of Hearing Heartbeats

“All of us,' he said, 'have hopes of being poet, artist, discoverer, philospoher, scientist; of possessing the attributes of all these simultaneously. Few are permitted to achieve any of them in daily life. But in travel we attain them all. Then we have our day of glory, when all our dreams come true, when we can be anything we like, as long as we like, and, when we are tired of it, pull up stakes and move on. Travel -- the solitude of the mountains, the emptiness of the desert, the delicacy of the minaret; eternal change, limitless contrast, unending variety.' (Eric Lang)”
Robert Edison Fulton Jr., One Man Caravan

Wilfred Thesiger
“For me, exploration was a personal venture. I did not go to the Arabian desert to collect plants nor to make a map; such things were incidental. At heart I knew that to write or even to talk of my travels was to tarnish the achievement. I went there to find peace in the hardship of desert travel and the company of desert peoples. I set myself a goal on these journeys, and, although the goal itself was unimportant, its attainment had to be worth every effort and sacrifice... No, it is not the goal but the way there that matters, and the harder the way the more worth while the journey.”
Wilfred Thesiger

Kristin S. Kaufman
“Thousands of individuals unknowingly contribute to the creation of our lives. Over the years, these serendipitous exchanges made imprints on my mind and heart and served as catalysts for my ongoing growth and development.”
Kristin S. Kaufman, Is This Seat Taken?: Random Encounters That Change Your Life

“Not all journeys seek an end. Some are their own purpose.”
Una McCormack

Richie Norton
“A little piece of everywhere I go becomes a big part of everything I do.”
Richie Norton

Vera Marie Badertscher

Vera Marie Badertscher

Dean Koontz
“Evil travels the world in anonymity, its presence revealed only by the periodic consequences of its desires...”
Dean Koontz, Deeply Odd

Rūta Mataitytė
“Kilstelėjusi akis išvystu artėjant katedrą. Stabteliu su nuostaba, tarytum šį pastatą matyčiau pirmą kartą gyvenime. Juokingi mes - keliaujame tūkstančius kilometrų, kad patirtume kažką stebuklinga: kelias nuvirtusias kolonas, apgriuvusią tvirtovę, išblukusią freską, kurią būtina apžiūrėti, nes apie ją rašo kiekvienas kelionių vadovas. O į tuos stebuklus, kurių kampą kasdien apeiname, net nebepakeliame akių.”
Rūta Mataitytė, Gunda

“What's really wrong with making them the problem is that you abdicate your own responsibility. Once you say some mysterious they is in charge, then you're able to sit back comfortably and complain about how they are doing it.”
Michael Crighton

Evan S. Connell
“I wouldn't have missed it for the world," said Mrs. Bridge, smiling all around, "and I feel awfully lucky. Even so we were certainly glad to see the Union Station. I suppose no matter how far you go there's no place like home."

She could see they agreed with her, and surely what she had said was true, yet she was troubled and for a moment she was almost engulfed by a nameless panic.”
Evan S. Connell, Mrs. Bridge

“Sinclair James International Review: What to With Your Pets on a Flight

Most of the times, most pet owners do not know what to do with their pets when on a flight. To make it easier, we have allotted today’s feature for pet owners and address their challenges when flying with their pets.
Whether you are flying with your pet or it is flying without you, it is important to choose an airline that serves the entire route from beginning to end. After finding your airline, you will need to know their pet policies. Will the airline allow your dog or cat to fly in the cabin with you? What are the restrictions? Will your pet need to travel in the cargo hold?

Health Certificate

A health certificate is required when shipping your pet as cargo. Most airlines will require a health certificate for all pets checked as baggage. Some destination states may require a health certificate for your pet such as health cities like Manila, Philippines or Singapore. It is best to ask you veterinarian for more requirements.

If a health certificate is required, it must be issued by a licensed veterinarian within 10 days of transport. It must be authentic and not fraud. Airlines now have a lot of ways to know the authenticity of your documents. It must include:

• shipper’s name and address
• tag numbers or tattoos assigned to the animal
• age of the animal being shipped (USDA regulations require animals be at least 10 weeks old and fully weaned before traveling)
• statement that the animal is in good health (If the shipper knows that the pet is pregnant, it must be noted on the health certificate)
• list of administered inoculations, when applicable
• signature of the veterinarian
• date of the certificate

Live Animal Checklist/Confirmation of Feeding

When you check in your pet, you will be asked to complete a live animal checklist. When you sign this checklist, you are confirming that your pet has been offered food and water within four hours of check-in. On the checklist, you must also provide feeding and watering instructions for a 24-hour period. If in-transit feeding is necessary, you must provide food. This is to avoid any complaints of improper handling of animals on board.


The use of pet tranquilizers at high altitudes is unpredictable. If you plan to sedate your pet, you must have written consent from the pet’s veterinarian. This information must be attached to the kennel. Please keep in mind that some airline agents cannot administer medication of any kind.”
James Sinclair

“Travel makes me feel like a bird,
Travel gives me a sense of freedom,
Travel makes me come alive!”
Archana Chaurasia Kapoor

Sally Gardner
“Una volta, il mio capitano disse che nella vita si incontrano persone che, crediamo, diventeranno nostri compagni di viaggio, ma poi le perdiamo per strada. Altre persone da cui non ci aspettiamo molto, invece, scalano montagne insieme a noi. Il mio capitano concludeva - solo quando il bere lo faceva diventare sentimentale- che è meglio non chiedere al destino che cosa ha in serbo per noi, o dove porta la nostra strada.
«Ti basti stare in viaggio per essere felice» diceva. «Tutte le strade portano a una sola destinazione.»”
Sally Gardner, Tinder

“It's not a homeless life for me,
It's just that I'm home less
Than others like to be.”
Akilnathan Logeswaran

Christina Engela
“Captain Harald Biscay rubbed his graying temples, staring deep in thought at the vast star field showing on the large navigation display on the bridge. It had been a pretty rough few days for him. Of all the things he’d seen in his travels through the universe, not many rated worthy of being remembered. Of the few examples of items Captain Biscay rated that highly, when he was a young man, his uncle would often play the bagpipes at strange hours of the night – shortly before being put in a ‘home’. That rated a mention.”
Christina Engela, Dead Man's Hammer

“May find the right road to travel on.”

Sena Jeter Naslund
“She sat still, I thought, and yet she traveled. And when one stitches, the mind travels, not the way men do, with ax and oxen through the wilderness, but surely our traveling counted too, as motion. And I thought of the patience of the stitches. Writing a book, I thought, which men often do, but women only rarely, has the posture of sewing. One hand leads, and the other hand helps. And books, like quilts, are made, one word at a time, one stitch at a time.”
Sena Jeter Naslund, Ahab's Wife, or The Star-Gazer

“Those who say traveling is expensive, are just ill-informed.”
Maria Angelova

Flavio Santi
“«Guarda che con il friulano si va ovunque.»
La faccia della signora Vendramina non era molto convinta.
«Non ci credi? Ecco un esempio. Fra un po’ semineremo i carciofi, giusto? Gli articjocs. Sai come si chiamano in inglese? Artichoke. E in francese? Artichaut. E in spagnolo? Alcachofa. E in tedesco? Artischoke. Vedi?»
Era il suo asso nella manica. Ci aveva pensato mentre si vestiva. Conosceva sua madre: l’avrebbe impressionata. «Non ti basta? Ti ci metto un bel carico da undici. Restiamo sul tedesco, perché lì devo andare.»
Mentre parlava si era accomodato a tavola per fare colazione. Con la mano sinistra sollevò un lembo della maglia. «La maglietta, le bluse, eh? Pari pari in tedesco: Bluse
E adesso il gran finale gastronomico: «Quando andiamo a mangiare il prosciutto a San Daniele, andiamo sempre all’osteria Ai Bintars, no? Be’, i bintars erano gli operai che passavano l’inverno in Germania, dove “inverno” si dice appunto Winter».”
Flavio Santi, La primavera tarda ad arrivare

Olaudah Equiano
“After all, what makes any event important, unless by its observation we become better and wiser, and learn 'to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly before God'? To those who are possessed of this spirit there is scarcely any book of incident so trifling that does not afford some profit, while to others the experience of ages seems of no use; and even to pour out to them the treasures of wisdom is throwing the jewels of instruction away.”
Olaudah Equiano, Interesting Narrative of the Life of Olaudah Equiano 2e & Frankenstein 2e

“It's when water evaporates that it starts its travel upstream to where the mountains reside.”
Anthony T. Hincks
