Bill Bryson

​“I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can't read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can't even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses.”

Marcel Proust

 “The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”

G K Chesterton

​​“The traveller sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.”

Jean-Paul Satre

​​"For an occurrence to become an adventure, it is necessary and sufficient for one to recount it"
