“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page” – Saint Augustine of Hippo.

If for some reason you’re delaying on acting on your wanderlust, remember that travel can be one of the most life-changing experiences…. not all of us can travel the whole globe, but just making travel a priority—even to a new place a day’s drive away—can be eye-opening.Mark Twain
