As You may remember I have mentioned several times that I have a tendency to procrastinate when I’m around my computer! And to be honest sometimes I’m just plain tired from spending so many hours on it. I need sth more creative than Facebook and Twitter or even Instagram to erase my brain from all the social media clutter which always gives me headache.
Nevertheless I have decided to show you what I’m up to at 2am while I supposed to be writing new posts and editing pictures. 3 words! Quotes, quotes, quotes!
Even though I highly agree with Socrates!
I tend to agree with T.S. Eliot as well, so I give myself redemption.
This month I have found some inspirational and connected to travel quotes which I liked and thought you may too. Reading travel quotes makes me sentimental about my travels and crazy adventures.
Quotes I loved this month!
Travel not only makes you modes, but in my opinion makes you very humble. Or at least it supposed to. This is what I have observed about myself. I’m super outgoing and confident and that will never change but when I was much younger I was quiet stubborn and had my mind set on many subjects, like politics and ideology. After many years of extensive travels I have much more distance to many things.
This is a well known truth that travelling makes you smarter, because you experience a lot, you adapt, you observe, you learn without realising! Same as reading, I love reading and just learning through it is like a side effect, I would be still doing it even if I gain nothing else except nice time.
Big time yes! I face this issue almost every bigger journey I take. You know when I told my friends 5 years ago that I’m going to Israel where I currently live many of them where hesitant. You know there is war, bombs and danger. Israeli people are rude and stingy etc They could never be more wrong! But they only understood when they visited me, as I always push all my friends to visit so they can change their mind.
Same happened when I said that I’m going to Iran, Oman, alone to Brazil or Benin. I often say that I travel to make my own mind about the world and people. Can’t wait to see faces of some once I inform them that I’m going to Yemen and Pakistan.
And maybe those places are not a lever of security as our super safe Europe, but as James Dean said…
And indeed you must be super brave to leave your comfort zone, not many people does!
And let’s be honest I may love crazy adventures and extreme sports, but some love sunny days on the beach and cocktails with colourful umbrellas.
But no matter where and how you travel it never ends. It becomes a huge addiction, at least in my case! I can’t and don’t want to imagine my life without travel.
I found this particular quote while stumbling and was loved it. Smart man this Confucius guy. But that not always works for such an energetic chatter box like me!
But no matter how many mistakes I do, I always remind myself words of well known Vietnamese Buddhist monk…
And never ever gave up your journey.
But as well have distance to life!
