Travel: Jaunt The World

Spread the love

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” Saint Augustine

Travel: JauntTheWorld - Visit all the people and places you can see!

Travel: JauntTheWorld – Visit all the people and places you can see!

I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. Hilaire Belloc
Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. Mary Ritter Beard

Where would you like to go for a short jaunt? An extended trip? Travel has always been a big part of my life. I grew up in a family of travel lovers and had the opportunity to live/study on three continents. I’ve traveled beyond the original three, and have shared my love for travel with my children; they continue to look for new places to visit and explore. While I took a short break in the last couple of years, I’d love to get back to traveling the globe and have decided to dedicate this page to all things travel related and that includes food, music, culture and more. Join me!

To travel is to take a journey into yourself. Danny Kaye
A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. John Steinbeck

One of the joys of traveling is getting to meet the locals and making new friends. Whenever I take a trip, I make an effort to connect with local people and see their world through their eyes; even if for a few minutes. This helps me understand how the locals live and what matters to them. The world is a big and beautiful place and there is so much to see, learn and share. Join me and add your favorite locations here. If you’d like to invite me on an excursion or wish to share a wonderful location with my readers, I’m all ears. Bon Voyage!

    We travel extensively and just got back from Spain and Portugal. There aren’t many places left on our bucket list, so we are doing some repeating. We’ll be back in France yet again for 3 weeks next year. The rest of the year, only domestic destinations but one or two each month. This weekend, Virginia, then Manhattan, western NY, Montana, Maui and Santa Fe. What did I leave out?

    Traveling is a big lesson plan and once we’ve seen and visited so many places, we surely will not be lost anymore. why? because we have heard a lot of dialects and perhaps learned a few or two – that would help us communicate with others. We have learned the cuisine and delicacies in each places so we will never get hungry. And surely we have met a soul or two who will be our friends to lead us.

    I just read (and loved) a great post about how that St Augustine quote belittles the experiences of those who do not have the means to travel. Which I totally agree with! That being said, I think traveling is wonderful and I miss being able to do it more.

    • 05/07/2017 1:29 am

      I have read reactions to that quote and I think the point that people are missing is that travel doesn’t have to be international. It can be local. Saint Augustine lived in a time when there were no planes and most people walked or rode horses. Travel could even be as simple as getting to know your own community and neighborhood. So it is not intended to be cruel. It is an encouragement to reach out to others from wherever we are. <3

    Hey Eliza, that opening statement (the one from Saint Augustine) is a catch! Traveling sure gives you the opportunity to touch lives of people and cultures you otherwise won’t even know existed.

    Connecting with local people is always what we do too, but this is only possible when we know how to speak their language. If not, we would be having trouble doing sign languages or showing text through paper.

    • 02/07/2017 12:41 pm

      We can connect even with limited knowledge of the language. English is a universal language and hand signs, few words and smiles go a long way. 🙂

We went there in November 2013 for my middle daughter’s destination wedding, but we want to go back by ourselves some day and have the honeymoon we never had when we got married over 11 year ago.

    We stayed at the Excellence Resort (worthy of its name!) on an all-inclusive package deal and it was amazing! All amenities, meals and drinks included – I think over a dozen different restaurants and beach-side/pool-side bars. The staff would walk along the beach and take orders, and then serve guests – we didn’t even have to move! Great way to have a vacation!
