Pleasure of Traveling; Adventure



The pleasure in traveling consists of the obstacles, the fatigue, and even the danger.  What charm can anyone find in an excursion when he is always sure of reaching his destination, of having horses ready waiting for him, a soft bed, an excellent supper, and all the eases and comfort he can enjoy in his own home!  One of the great misfortunes of modern life is the want of any sudden surprise, and the absence of all adventures.  Everything is so well arranged. -THÉOPHILE GAUTIER, WANDERINGS IN SPAIN

 

Less than a week to go and finally some adventure.  Like the quote states above, I’ve always fallen into that category of traveling in comfort; going to a foreign land and experiencing all of the same luxuries I typically experience at home.  Finally a change of mind and heart and a true desire to experience some hardships and obstacles on this trip.  From challenge comes change and hopefully a strengthening of character.  Bring on the Adventure.



The BEST holidays
