During our last meal together, we all passed around a list of travel quotes, and we each chose one quote that spoke to us personally. Afterwards, we went around and read our quotes, and explained why we chose them. Here are a few of ours:
Emma: “I sooned realized that a journey doesn’t go far if the distance travelled externally is the distance travelled within.” -Lillian Smith
