We have started the process of converting our pages to support Google's Adsense. Any travel topic on the Travel Topic Index page shown in green indicates that the link goes to a page with the new format.  However, to remain user-friendly, our topic text remains free of ads. Ads are limited to a top banner ad and ads along the left column only on a topic page.

To all Travelers and Tourists

Take a minute out of your life on this planet and enjoy some travel wisdom. Here are some of our favorites:
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
-Mark Twain
 
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."  - St. Augustine
 
"He who would travel happily must travel light."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 
"One of the gladdest moments of human life, me thinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy"
-Sir Richard Burton, the explorer
 
"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries."  - Aldous Huxley
