Inspiration For the Week: 13/5/13 Travel Is a Change in the Ideas of Living

  “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” -Miriam Beard As I slowly settle back into ‘life at home’ attempting to re-establish a schedule and sense of “normalcy,” I am becoming strangely aware of just how these travels have changed me on a deep and very real level.

Inspiration For The Week: 28/1/13
