“Travel” by Anthony Bourdain


This weekend, I am traveling to Virginia again, but this time  for a family wedding. I loved this quote and have been saving it .  Yes, I know that the travel or journey metaphor is over used. . . . life is a journey, spiritual journey, family journey. . . .just about any journey you want to describe. And of course, a trip or travel  either in your country or abroad. But all those are  journeys we travel as we pass through this world.

Travels often tucked into lovely warm experiences are not  always  pretty and often uncomfortable as you face new challenges. Sometimes there is pain as you are changed with uncomfortable new things and or people.  Some people we love, go and some others we wish would go , stay.  Every experience, each new person or location leaves marks somewhere . . . . .on your memory, your conscience , on your heart, or on your physical body.  During all these experiences you take something with you.   Hopefully you leave something good behind  through a word, smile, kindness  or example. Don’t we all hope  to leave something good and positive behind  that makes a difference in someone’s life  when  we have passed through this world?

Can you share about your travels or journey?  Are they synonyms ?
