Travel Quote of the Day

“But that’s the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I don’t want to know what people are talking about. I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”

― Bill Bryson, Neither Here Nor There: Travels in Europe

I too love this about travel. From home the world looks big and scary, but once you’re out there, that childhood curiosity overtakes fear and I just want to do and learn everything.
