A journey of a thousand miles
must begin with a single step.
I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to
and people I’ve never met.
Live Life With No Excuses.
Travel With No Regret.
Climb the mountain,
not so the world can see you,
but so you can see the world.
Investment in travel is
investment in yourself.
To Move, To Breathe,
To Fly, To Float;
To Gain All While You Give.
To Roam The Roads
Of Lands Remote,
To Travel Is To Live.
The beauty of nature will leave you
speechless once you start travelling.
But it will make you a storyteller
once you finish travelling.
Travel is more than the seeing of sights;
it is a change that goes on.
Deep and permanent,
in the ideas of living.
The use of travelling is to regulate
imagination with reality, and instead
of thinking of how things may be,
see them as they are.
Life is a magical journey,
so travel endlessly to unfold its
profound and heart-touching beauty.
Travel doesn’t essentially mean you go miles away,
There’s a lot to explore close by.
Tourism can do a great deal of good in
destinations-whether it is by bringing economic benefits
to local communities; helping with conservation efforts
or in placing a value on aspects of cultural heritage.
As “responsible travellers” we must all try to do
more of the good and less of the negative.
