Friday Fun - add your travel philosophy here!

Wherever you go, there you are. Your luggage is another story.

Please feel free to add your own or plagiarized expressions!

My two rules of travel:

1. Hotels should have names, not numbers (Roman Numerals excluded).

2. There are 2 kinds of restaurant in the world--the kind where you look down to read the menu and the kind where you look up. You can look up for a lunch menu, but never dinner.

My lifelong motto, instilled by my amazing mom:

Go wherever you can, whenever you can.

You can make more money; you can't make more time.

The rewards of the journey far outweigh the risk of leaving the harbor.

i've posted this before...
explore, and explore. make yourself neccessary and the world will give you bread.
i definitely use this for all aspects of my life. for me, it's just about reaching out, extending yourself, making sure you show up for the life that is meant for you.

A road of 1,000 miles begins with... a cash advance!

So few summer days, and so many ball parks.

There is another way to go through life besides being drug through it kicking and screaming.

My favorite, only take half of what you think you will need and budget twice as much as you think you will spend.

I'll spend all day in the great outdoors......as long as I can spend all night in the great indoors!

I made that up a long time ago after an awful night sleeping in a tent. It will never happen again.

Sleep with the windows open and soak in some of the culture!!!

Bring a journal or notebook and take notes of your wonderful experiences, names of towns you pass, restauarants, people you meet.

There is no such thing as bad weather only bad clothes.
