This week's travel quote by novelist, poet, short story and memoir writer, Lisa St. Aubin de Teran comes from her book Off the Rails: Memoirs of a Train Addict. I stumbled upon the quote before knowing the source, so it's interesting that it had immediately conjured up for me an image of train travel.
For most of us, travel is temporary, sporadic, something that punctuates our lives rather than constituting our everyday routine. I like the author's comparison here: travel sometimes does feel like a flirtation to me. How many times have you returned from a trip saying that you had fallen in love with a destination, that you wished you could have stayed longer to get to know it better?
Ah, but there are so many destinations to dance with. I may never settle down with just one.
