For my regular followers and any new visitors – it’s been four months since the end of one of the longest vacations I’ve ever taken. I’m still in a fog of reminiscence as I scroll thru fotos and try to select topics that are short enough to keep from boring my audience rigid (I’ve always liked that phrase; had to think of a way to use it). Look for photos, stories and other musings from Croatia beyond Dubrovnik; Mostar in Bosnia; Slovenia; Salzburg, Austria; Floriade in Venlo, Netherlands and more on my week in London.
For those I met on the Croatia-Slovenia tour, I’d love to see some of your favorite photos. Also, I finally tracked down the complete quote from Mark Twain on travel. The first part is repeated by Joseph Rosendo on his US travel show, Travelscope and it’s a sentiment that should probably be burned onto the forehead of every politician and posted on the bathroom mirror of every human being on the planet…
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Mark Twain wrote this in 1857 and no less true today.
Start planning your next trip today, especially if it will be your first and open your mind!
