If you've stuck with me this far in the A to Z challenge, then you know my theme throughout has been about my recent travel to England, Scotland, and Wales. For me, it was as much about dreaming and discovering as it was researching the places I visited.
Travel is good for the writer's soul. And it doesn't have to be a big trip across an ocean. Anywhere that takes us out of our backyards for a day and let's us experience something out of the ordinary will make a difference in the way we perceive the everyday...if our eyes and minds are open.
Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.

College probably won't hurt you -- if you don't take it too seriously. But far more important, I believe, is broad general experience: living as active a life as possible, meeting all ranks of people, plenty of travel, trying your hand at various kinds of work, keeping your eyes, ears, and mind open, remembering what you observe, reading plenty of good books, and writing every day -- simply writing.
-- Edward Abbey
And one more thing about travel:
If you actually look like your passport photo, you aren't well enough to travel.
