Travel thoughts to keep you wandering, or is that wondering?

I continue trying to find the time to complete the recent trip write up (A fortnight ago already - where did that time go?)

Meanwhile a few quick aphorisms from others far more gifted at making point than me:
  • "The man who follows the crowd will usually get no further than the crowd.The man who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever been" (Alan Ashley-Pitt)

And for those peering through thick rain clouds, the batteries on the GPS flat, and the compass left back on the dashboard of the car..........

  • "Alone I wander a thousand miles, and I ask my way from the white clouds" (Maitreya)

  • "I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be" (Douglas Adams)

Plenty more ponderings where these gems came from here.

Should give you something to chew over if the rain gets too much for outdoors fun this weekend.

Lovely quotes, John. They have cheered me up no end. I also love the well-known Confucious one: A journey 1000 miles begins with a single step
 
I tried to track that one down recently as I'm sure it appeared/was credited to 'Chariman Mao's Little Red Book' But Confucious seems to be the one who got there first according to t'internet
