Summer wanderlust grabs hold and sparks a strong desire to hit the holiday road in order to satisfy the wanderlust within, discover roads less traveled, and revel in new adventures while finding ourselves along the way.
“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.”
― Pico Iyer
“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path, and leave a trail.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
“When we get to a place where no one knows us, we become most ourselves.”
Paris at Night
“I love Paris in the summer, when it sizzles.”
― Cole Porter
“A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.”
—Oliver Wendell Holmes
“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.”
– Andre Gide
“To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the most pleasant sensations in the world.”
Summer wanderlust travel guides us to destinations known or pondered, sights seen and those soon to behold.
I hope you have a fetching Friday and inspired weekend.
