travel’in quotes

One of my all-time favourite quotes is Mark Twain’s wildly famous:

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.”

I knew I had it in me to just get up and go looking for something I wasn’t even able to define at that age..

From that moment on I had my vagabond shoes in place and I set on the way – which way? Every way. Any way.

New ways.

And exciting ways.

And wrong ways which felt amazing.

And right ways which lead higher.

And dead ends which made me realize that the game is never over.

And challenging ways which drew blood, sweat and tears but in the end elicited laughter.

And those that defined me, broke me in and carved out my persona.

Because the road is my confidant.

  1. And it is your brave, wonderful Vagabond Soul I love,
    Why when I think of you…a great smile takes me over….and shows on my face….
    for you are like no other friend I have.
    I confess I have loved many….
    I do love many women….
    but you are quite special and so unique with the WIND OF FREEDOM in your long hair….
    and in your Mind and in your Heart.

    I am blessed to call Dea, Friend!
    And Fellow Vagabond!

    with all my love,
