So on that encouraging note I am posting a few quotes about travel and adventure, for a boost.
"The road goes ever on and on down from the door where it began. Now far ahead the Road has gone, and I must follow, if I can, pursuing it with eager feet until it joins some larger way where many paths and errands meet." J.R.R. Tolkien (The Hobbit)
"Tourists don't know where they've been, travelers don't know where they're going." Paul Theroux
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." Lao Tzu
