Most Memorable Travel Experience
Every experience in travelling through life is memorable. What is most and what is least I cannot say. Each has a flavor for its time and place.

Prince Sacapuntas and Prince Pappagallo dwell in the Court of King Juan. Some quotations from the Court archives follow:

"Journeys, like artists, are born and not made. A thousand differing circumstances contribute to them, few of them willed or determined by the will - whatever we may think" ~ Lawrence Durrell

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover" ~ Mark Twain

"Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living" ~ Miriam Beard

"You don't really long for another country. You long for something in yourself that you don't have, or haven't been able to find" ~ John Cheever

"You can discover or explore a place in visiting, but you only really know a place when returning home" ~ Brian M. Walsh

"There is no foreign land; it is the traveler only that is foreign" ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
“The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page" ~ St. Augustine

"A good traveller has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving" ~Lao Tzu

"Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen" ~ Benjamin Disraeli

"Every perfect traveller always creates the country where he travels" ~ Nikos Kazantzakis

"The heaviest luggage for a traveller is an empty purse" ~ German proverb

"The fellow who says he'll meet you halfway usually thinks he's standing on the dividing line" ~ O.A. Battista

‚ÄúTravel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness‚ÄĚ ~ Mark Twain

"The journey, not the arrival matters" ~ T.S. Eliot

"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things" ~ Henry Miller

"Let your memory be your travel bag" ~ A. Solzhenitsyn

"If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home" ~ James Michener

"Too often travel, instead of broadening the mind, merely lengthens the conversations" ~ Elizabeth Drew

"A tourist doesn't know where he's been. A traveller doesn't know where he's going" ~ Paul Theroux

"A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it" ~ John Steinbeck

"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move" ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

"Traveling is almost like talking with men of other centuries" ~ Descartes

"He who would travel happily must travel light" ~ Antoine de St. Exupery

"They change their climate, not their soul, who rush across the sea" ~ Horace

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail" ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Isn't one of life's great pleasures to see new places and do new things?" ~ Voltaire

"Not what I have, but what I do is my kingdom." ~Thomas Carlyle
