Travel Quotes: Memory
Posted in Travel Quotes3 comments
This week’s travel quote struck a nerve with me when I read it. I have a long tradition of wearing very rose tinted glasses when looking back at my former travels. What was once an annoyance is now a taste of local flavor, what was once heart attack inducing turbulence is now a mildly bumpy ride, and what was once a tear inducing frustration is now a funny party story. The bad parts just seem to fade away. But good old Ben says it better than me:
“Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.”- Former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli
God ain’t that the truth!
That is a great quote! Whenever I’m traveling and hear some one talk about things going bad, I say, “this will be a really funny story later.”
It’s really the best way to look at things!
