Last week one of my colleagues who had read my previous entry on travelling showed me some quotations in a small dictionary named : "Mariam Webster's of Quotations" ...
I read them & found them reallyyy interesting ...
I thank him and write them for my readers :
--- The time to enjoy a European trip is about three weeks after unpacking. __ GEORGE ADE, Forty Modern Fables
--- Traveling is the ruin of all happiness . There's no looking at a building here, after seeing Italy. __ FANNY BURNEY, Cecilia
--- Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection. __ LAWRENCE DURRELL, Bitter Lemons
--- A man who has not been in Italy is always consious of an inferiority. __ SAMUEL JOHNSON
--- Thanks to the interstate highway system, it is now possible to travel across the country from coast to coast without seeing anything . __ CHARLES KURALT, On the Road
--- Travelers are always discoverers, especially those who travel by air. There are no signposts in the sky to show a man has passed that way before. There are no channels marked. The flier breaks each second into new unchartedseas. __ ANNE MORROW LINDBERGH, North to the Orient
--- A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it. __ GEORGR MOORE, The Brook Kerith
--- 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, Travels with a Donkey cannot rest from travel; I will drink Life to the lees. __ ALFRED LORD TENNYSON, "Ulysses"
--- Travel is glamorous only in retrospect. __ PAUL THEROUX, quoted in The Observer
--- Extensive traveling induces a feeling of encapsulation; and travel, so broadebibg at first, contracts the mind. __ PAUL THEROUX, The Great Railway Bazaar

My brother & I were listening to a piece of music song by A-HA band ...
It was excellent & reminded us of the good times we had in Europe 2 years ago ...
My brother said, " It's summer again ... I remember the good days we had ... I wish we were there ..."
We really enjoyed ourselves when we were there and I can say that one of the best times I've had in my life has been my travels in Europe and the US with my family ...
In my next entries I'll write about them with more details ...
But what I as well as my brother agreed on was that we enjoyed ourselves a lot only because WE HAD GONE ON A TRIP ! Only because WE HAD TO COME BACK SOME TIME SOON and leave those places, and also because it has always been difficult to travel ( because of problems in getting visa , high expenses, ...)
The enjoyment that a tourist has can never be compared with that of an inhabitant living there all her life ...
