“Travel, in other words, is . . .
. . .an act of imagination, as well as the body.
Certainly it requires a reporters memory and eye for detail, research,
an ability to sponge up the stories one encounters.
But the travel narrative remains an imaginative act
an uncovering and forging of connections that
might not occur to another person
to be worth writing down.”
How would you complete the sentence, “Travel, in other words, is. . .”?
That’s it for this Travel Photo Thursday – head over to Nanci’s Budget Travelers Sandbox for more armchair travels! And if you miss us there, stop by The Tablescraper's "Oh, the Places I have been!"

I'd have to say Travel, in other words is, learning about the world while learning more about one's self.
Thanks much, Marcia. One really does learn more about one's self while out there in the world, don't they?Delete
Travel is simply everything. I can't think of something which brings me more joy, or a more intense feeling of joy.ReplyDelete
You summed it up well, denise! It really is everything around this household!Delete
Lovely photos for lovely words, Jackie. Travel is "very personal" which I think is the point of his last words "... an uncovering and forging of connections that might not occur to another personReplyDelete
to be worth writing down.”
Thanks Cathy. You are correct about travel being so very personal, just like one man's junk is another man's treasure.Delete
....to pursue your soul...", Jackie. Good post :)ReplyDelete
Love the way you completed that sentence, Mike! Thanks for visiting.Delete
Beautiful poem and beautiful pictures to go with them. It's hard to complete this sentence since it means so many things to me but the most important for me is that Travel is showing my kids the world and making special memories with them.ReplyDelete
Travel is... different for every person. Great poem and wonderful images. I especially like the one of the clear, shallow harbor. I know that in my family, each person notices different things when we travel. We have to combine all our stories to get a full picture.ReplyDelete
