My blog has a quote on the main page that likens the world to a book and relating that to those who travel and those who do not. This photo and quote came through my blog reader and I love it! It might be a great alternative quote if I decide I want to change mine some day!
I’m a fan of Rick Steves’ travel shows and his travel advice. Yes, he and his company conduct tours in Europe and no, tours aren’t for everyone, as I’ve just finished explaining earlier today. But if you’re a fan, and can work out the time difference, there is a day of web-seminars today. They start at 9 a.m. Pacific time, noon on the east coast of America, 1 p.m. Atlantic time where I am, and so on. I’m reblogging the details from Liberated Traveler here for those interested.
Rick Steves is hosting another live travel festival tomorrow. The webcast begins at 9:00 AM Pacific Time and can be found at this link. What seminars will he be offering?
- 9:00 a.m. European Travel Skills
- 11:30 a.m. Packing Light and Right
- 2:00 p.m. France
- 4:30 p.m. Italy
- 7:00 p.m. Europe 101: Art and History for Travelers
I enjoy letting the webcast play as I dream about my next travel plans. Have a great weekend!
Wow, what a great blog post on travel is this. International Travel Chick has some very true throughs on travel and the “The Travelling Be’s”.

Travel is about seeing new things and making memories and even if things don’t go to plan, you’ve got a great story to tell!
Each month, Oprah writes a column titled “What I Know For Sure” for her O Magazine. After recent events, I am inspired to write my own article on “What I Know For Sure” about travel. For me, travel is all about “The Travelling Be’s”…
Travelling is like gambling…sometimes you win, other times you crap out. I would love to say ‘always bet on black’ but you might get caught in a blackout and I can’t have that on my conscience :) Not every trip will go as planned…and that is the beauty of travel. The adventure you experience along the way. You may have a bad experience or 2, but hopefully the good travel memories blot out the bad. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Remember this…you are somewhere AMAZING (hopefully…sorry if you aren’t…that does suck for you…and if that is the case, get a ticket and go somewhere amazing…
