Finding inspiration while on vacation
“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” ― Lao Tzu
Going on vacation can be more inspiring than almost anything that I can think of. It isn't just about the interesting changes in scenery. It is the family dynamics, the cuisine, the music, etc.
“Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination and the journey. They are home.” ― Anna Quindlen, How Reading Changed My Life
Go somewhere that you have never been and you will tease your senses with a thousand delights. Whether you are exploring the beaches of Florida, The deserts of Arizona, or the cultural diversity of New Orleans every new place offers new opportunities to become inspired.
Travel is important
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” ― St. Augustine
I've put a few images down here from some of my favorite vacations. I hope that these will inspire you to visit some of them as well.
I love interesting architecture
I have always loved interesting architecture and structure. It is very interesting to learn the history of how it was made, what its purpose was and what it is being used for now.
Stun Your Readers
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” ― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
Traveling is as much about what you bring back home with you as it is about what you discover. Remember that the next time that you take a trip.
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” ― Mark Twain, The Innocents Abroad / Roughing It
Travel helps us to learn about the important things in life. We can see first hand the plight of the sea turtle, the effects of pollution, and the ravages of time.
