The thing I love most about travelling is that it forces you to live in the moment. You never really think more than a few days ahead, if that. It's about what you're doing now. How do we get there? Where does that go? I wonder what that's like. And it gives you an incredible feeling of freedom. At home, we bog ourselves down with worries and plans that keep us focused on what will happen in the future. But when travelling, all that stuff doesn't matter. You deal with it when it happens.
In 2008/09 I went backpacking round the world. Well, some of it. I'm hoping that I'll be off on another adventure soon, but for now, while im at University, I'll be sticking to shorter trips. I've got to go somewhere, I'm thinking europe.My fave travel quotes.

"Not all those who wander are lost." - J.R.R. Tolkien
“When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable. It is designed to make its own people comfortable.” – Clifton Fadiman
