While doing some exploring of travel quotes for the Center for International Education, I kept thinking to myself, ‘who am I to keep these wonderful quotes to myself?’ Although CIE will tweet most them out (follow them @umwcie), I decided I would share them with you all, my lovely readers. Quick note: the quote in the photo above is one that I hold very close to me, as it was said by Bro (aka my grandpa) a few years back.
Let these squander around your brain. Each quote may be interpreted differently by each reader. Let me know what you think.
