Concise Oxford English Dictionary
On Sunday I returned from my latest trip, to Morocco. I've been travelling quite a bit since December.
A friend of mine sent me this quote a few months ago:
‘Travelling outgrows its motives. It soon proves sufficient in itself. You
think you are making a trip, but soon it is making you – or unmaking you.’
N. Bouvier – The Way of the World – 1963.
I have exchanged many smiles that start with the eyes and reach deeper
Shared some special moments
Enjoyed enlightening conversations
Found new friends
I am thankful to and for the people (and creatures) that I've met, who have made me feel welcome with their warmth
Precious moments give life meaning.
Sherry-Rebujito - now you know where I've been! Your parcel's in the post... ;-)
Dany - "trip" comes from "trippen ‘to skip, hop’." *grins* I am keeping hoppy most of the time and striving for it the whole time!
Rafal & MacGuffin - Thank you for asking, I am very well and working on improving! ;-)
Busy catching up and planning but soon I hope to be back to uploading... because (inter alia) I have been taking photos!
