About rlgpeu

A little about Gabor:

I'll admit I consider myself a pretty down to earth kinda guy, that is when my heads not in the clouds :P. Love going to the beach and bushwalking, and am always up for a laugh. Own an Openwater Diving Certificate, would like to get the advanced one day. Other than obviously knowing English, I am reasonably fluent in Hungarian, specially since the latest stay there & have dabbled in French. Hoping to do much more travel in the years to come with my beautiful partner Rhony. Mainly in Europe, though I would like to go to Japan and Russia also. As a final note, although I was born in Hungary, I've lived from the age of 2 to 22 in Australia, and so consider myself foremost an Aussie, and a Hungarian second.

Here's a Bunch of Travel Quotes & Proverbs:

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
- Mark Twain

The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.
- St. Augustine, City of God, 413-426

I have wandered all my life, and I also traveled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.
- Hilaire Belloc

The traveler was active; he went strenuously in search of people, of adventure, of experience. The tourist is passive; he expects interesting things to happen to him. He goes "sight-seeing".
- Daniel J. Boorstin

One of the gladdest moments of human life, methinks, 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 Francis Burton

Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from travel's immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad new sights, smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand how others do differently what we believed to be the right and only way.
- Ralph Crawshaw

Stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines, your refrigerator full of food, your closet full of clothes - with all this taken away, you are forced into direct experience. Such direct experience inevitably makes you aware of who it is that is having the experience. That's not always comfortable, but it is always invigorating.
- Michael Crichton

All the pathos and irony of leaving one's youth behind is thus implicit in every joyous moment of travel: one knows that the first joy can never be recovered, and the wise traveler learns not to repeat successes but tries new places all the time.
- Paul Fussell

If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.
- James A. Michener

A man travels the world over in search of what he needs, and returns home to find it.
- George Moore

To see once is worth more than hearing a hundred times.
- African Proverb

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
- Chinese Proverb

Good company on the road is the shortest cut.
- Italian Saying
