"I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking twelve miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people — Americans and Europeans — come back and go, “Ohhhh.” And the lightbulb goes on."
"Love is an untamed force. When we try to control it, it destroys us. When we try to imprison it, it enslaves us. When we try to understand it, it leaves us feeling lost and confused."
"Absence diminishes minor passions and inflames great ones, as the wind douses a candle and fans a fire."
La Rochefoucauld, 1613-1680
Oh panda cakes! I likey…. >_<
Sagada… my dream travel. I have only heard about Sagada in tales from my family and friends, read in the news paper, saw on a travel logs online and yes… even followed updates on twitter. Of all the other places to visit, why the northern region far off…
I am always reminded of that special person when looking at sunsets.
