“I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag

That's my current favorite saying.  I've lived in Florida since I was 9 years old.  Trust me, Santa Rosa Beach is beautiful.  The beach here has unparalleled beauty. People spend a lot of money to vacation here year after year.   And yet, I yearn to travel and get away from here.  Seeing another culture changes ones perspective in this short and beautiful life that we live. 

“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.” ― Hans Christian Andersen

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” – Maya Angelou
