To Travel Is To Live

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”

Hans Christian Andersen, Danish Author and poet (1805-1875),
The Fairy Tale of My Life: An Autobiography

How true!

Nationalpark Mols Bjerge

Nationalpark Mols Bjerge. Sometimes you don’t have to travel very far to see something nice and new. This is ‘just down the road’ (5 miles away) a couple of weeks ago.

One of my best tips for wellness is to travel, not necessarily to Bali or the Easter Islands, though probably nice, but to get out and about and see, do and learn something new.

To do it when you can and while you can: Travel in your own town, state, country – or the world, if you got time (read money) to spare.

Go somewhere new, get variety in life. I suddenly realized, having visited e.g. Los Angeles and London more than 10 times each, that there are 206 sovereign states (193 UN member states) and thousands of other cities to see. Think about that …
Maybe it is time to see something new and not go the same ole places every time …

What do you think?

  1. So true! I have started a blog about this same idea. We view travel as some exotic place with beaches and fruity cocktails, but sometimes you can find something new right around the corner.

  2. It is very true! I think travel is not an activity, but a soul. Even back home you can always adventuring by trying something new! Of course if you got the time and money, it would be fun to go someplace new 🙂
