Travel Quote Tuesday | Samantha Shannon

Those of us who are able to travel are favoured by immense good fortune.

We have been born into countries where our economies and lifestyles allow us to earn sufficient disposable income to afford to travel, into societies where travel is encouraged and recognised as a worthwhile and enjoyable pursuit, and into an era when getting around the globe is much simpler than it once was.

So many people in the world cannot travel for so many different reasons that I cherish the good fortune that allows me to do so.

This quote by British fantasy author Samantha Shannon speaks of that familiar longing to wander strange lands.

Iceland offers a new and stunning vista around every corner, so many that it’s hard to take in all the visual beauty on offer. This photo was taken at the harbour in Sauðárkrókur.

    Ah Iceland, yet another place that stole a wee bit of my heart. I so want to return but I also want to explore elsewhere. The traveler’s eternal dilemma!

    The quote captures the essence and spirit of travel. If only the spirit was free to roam across the world, flitting from one place to another, not caring for borders, visas and passports. Would that not be absolutely blissful?

    You are right – there are many, many people who aren’t fortunate enough to be able to follow their travel dreams, and many more that have no desire to travel. I’m with you, though… Wanderlust forever.

    I am so thankful being born in Norway and have the opportunity to travl.for me it is important to travel for understanding how the world works and not only for pleasures. I have lived in Ecuador for two years and have seen poverty first hand. Many people don’t really travel outside their city as well and many of them also don’t have a desire to travel as well. Thank you for this reflective quote.

    I understand. It’s easy to be isolated from the realities of the world if one doesn’t get out and see.
