Travel the World

Travelling appears to be in our DNA.  Given the migration patterns throughout the centuries, travelling appears to be a survival impulse, a necessity for continued existence.

Today, we travel to explore, have fun and flee the chains of labour.  We plan our vacations with careful precision; when we return to reality, we are already planning our next excursion. This week, I will be posting thoughts about travel – where we go and where we come from…which, in many cases, may be the same place.

We are what our thoughts have made us; so take care about what you think. Words are secondary. Thoughts live; they travel far.”

  1. Lovely photo of Montmartre in Paris – one of my very favourite places. I’ve been blessed to visit Paris four times. I would love to live there for a few months, to really meld with it. It is a feast to the senses. Looking forward to your further insights on travel. Thank you for bringing a great start to my day. Blessings xx


    1. There is something about Paris! You are blest indeed to have been there 4 times! And yes, it IS a feast to the senses. My visit was in the Spring – the flowers, the music, art, history AHHH. Ernest Hemingway said it best: “If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”


  2. I’ve tried to respond to your email twice and it keeps disappearing, so I’ve come to your page to try again. Third time lucky. I love the quote. I’ve got that one in my file, too. Paris is certainly one of those places that live on in my heart. I should imagine it’s a long flight for you. It’s only approx 45 minute flight to Charles de Gaulle airport from Manchester, although I prefer to get the Eurostar from London – approx 2hrs 20mins. I don’t care for flying and only go by plane if there’s no other option. Loving your articles. Thank you. xx


    1. Direct from Vancouver, Canada it takes about 12 hours. Paris is worth every hour and it just keeps the excitement mounting! Thank you so much for stopping by! It brightens my day!


  3. For those of us who can’t travel. There are lovely photos and descriptions by those who have been there. We can fill our days with that and books about Paris, etc. But we don’t need to travel far to see beauty–possibly next door.


    1. I think we have the greatest ability to travel far simply by staying in place. Your comment reminds me of a quote by Twyla Tharp the American dancer and choreographer who lives and works in New York City: “Art is the only way to run away without leaving home.” It seems that others have found a way to travel without the use of a plane, train or automobile.
