"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime".

(Mark Twain)

"Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world".

(Gustave Flaubert)
