Travel Quote Tuesday | Diane Arbus

‘Diane Arbus was an American photographer and writer noted for photographs of marginalized people—dwarfs, giants, transgender people, nudists, circus performers —and others whose normality was perceived by the general populace as ugly or surreal.’ (Wiki)

What that says to me is that she excelled in finding beauty where others fail to see it, a quality that holds much currency in our home lives as well as when we travel.

Today’s quote, one of her most often cited, resonates strongly. When planning our travels, I like to mix up trips to places that are familiar to us, and that we know and love well, with holidays that take us to places we’ve never been before.

(c) Kavita Favelle - Diane Arbus - Antarctica

Pete and I have visited Antarctica twice – our ‘once in a lifetime trip’ in 2004 only whetting our appetite to return, which we did four years later. My hope is that we are able to visit this beautiful region of the world for a third time in the years to come.

    Couldn’t agree more! I always try to visit somewhere new – but am a sucker for falling in love with places too quickly and returning year after year!


    Yeah, feel like that about a few places… we’ve been back more than once to Botswana and Namibia, to Japan (three trips so far and very eager to go back again soon), of course to France which we love…

    I totally agree. In some ways I think there are too many places in the world to visit anywhere twice, but then when you visit the same place again (as I have done a few times) you learn so much more about it and really delve into is beauty. Ah so much travel too little time!

    I’m not sure which I love most – the photo or the quote! One of the best things about travel writing for me is that opportunity to just say yes and go to places I’ve never considered…for the most part I am pleased and sometimes it is just a great great discovery.
