“Travel ... six letters flowing like melted French Brie across two syllables.”—Cathy Salter, Sept. 27, 2010, Columbia Daily Tribune
The famous Twain quote and the Saint Augustine quote and so many other famous travel quotes—they’re just so earnest, aren’t they? After reading Cathy’s words of wisdom above it occurred to me that we could use a little more levity, a little more strangeness, a little more melted French brie in our famous travel quotes.
Inspired by her words, I humbly submit a few suggestions for the canon:
- Travel ... in Spanish, it’s five letters that melt like jamon across three syllables.
- Travel is like a Peruvian flute band busking in your soul.
- Travel sticks with you like gum in your hair until you get it out with peanut butter.
- Travel opens the heart, and the wallet.
