a*point of origin

i’m wanting in riches, but with tremendous desire to step on local and foreign lands. damn if i’ll not find ways to make it happen. crossing my fingers….

current quote:

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 harbor.

Catch the tradewinds in your sails.

Explore… Dream… Discover

–Mark Twain

      This is so true. I feel like I am behind in things that I have always wanted to do but have not had the funds.

      • vetlongwalks March 7, 2010 at 11:44 AM #

        i recently came across a quote that runs something like “establish a purpose, and the means will follow”… that is the solution that’s been working out so far for me when it comes to issues on funds. i secure a ticket first, and figure out the funds later. most of the time, the funds will just come. thus, right now i’m convinced that it’s not really the issue on money that’s keeping people from traveling. it’s WILL. or the lack of it. i recognize that money is needed when traveling but i believe one can work around the issue of money if the will to travel is really THAT great. otherwise, you let yourself be convinced that traveling really is impossible.

I got a million pics, I ‘ve been to a couple of locations, but i have never put the excitement and the experience into words…not like you. Paeeeeeeeet. Hehe, nice work, vet.

      Explore. Dream. Discover. That was the title of my old blog. That quote inspires me to be all that I can be….

      • vetlongwalks February 4, 2010 at 12:24 PM #

        hi..thanks for visiting. the quote’s empowering, isn’t it? it gives you this bit of excitement that there’s something out there, waiting…

        • Den February 4, 2010 at 2:57 PM #

          Yeah, got here through Meream’s blog. =D Exactly how I feel about the quote. My other blog was actually a project blog — 101 goals in 1001 days. Talk about reaching out for things that are out there just for you!

    13. Mark May 27, 2010 at 11:45 AM #

      Quite interesting. I have been looking for a travel companion. Please feel welcome to contact me. USA Guy.

      • vetlongwalks May 27, 2010 at 7:20 PM #

        hi mark! thanks for visiting. what are your travel plans? i’m afraid i’m not really a hard core traveler. as much as i’d love to travel frequently, reality is i can only hop islands on very rare occasions – money constraints and all.

        good luck in finding a travel companion 🙂
