'WANDERLUST'

JULY 2019

 

"To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,

To gain all while you give,

To roam the roads of lands remote,

To travel is to love."

—Hans Christian Andersen

"Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go.

But no matter, the road is life."

—Jack Kerouac, On the Road
