on traveling and vacations

Some thoughts and ideas on traveling and vacations. I love the quote by Elbert Hubbard, about needing a vacation most just when one has had one!! I know exactly that feeling and there is never a more miserable moment than knowing that your vacation is over and the next one might be quite a while away. I also really liked the quote about weekends being like rainbows; looking good from afar and disappearing when near. How true that is!

"Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not."
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

He who does not get fun and enjoyment out of every day... needs to reorganize his life.

-George M. Adams

What do I want to take home from my summer vacation? Time. The wonderful luxury of being at rest. The days when you shut down the mental machinery that keeps life on track and let life simply wander. The days when you stop planning, analyzing, thinking and just are. Summer is my period of grace.
-Ellen Goodman

Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them.

-John Shirley

No man needs a vacation so much as the man who has just had one.

-Elbert Hubbard
