Travel Quote: If ever I’ve seen magic, it has been in Africa. -John Hemingway, the American Author.
No wonder so many movies are filmed in Africa. It is a continent that gets into your blood, unknowingly. Once you’ve been, you want to go back repeatedly. I think of movies such as Out of Africa (filmed in South Africa), I Dreamed of Africa, Invictus, Blood Diamond, Lord of War, The Lion of Africa (adventure), and so many more blockbuster films.
Travel Quote: The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. – Marcel Proust
Antarctica is on many of our bucket lists, but it’s not always practical or possible to travel that far to discover new landscapes. We can also look around the immediate region we live in and compile a bucket list of things to explore locally. It’s a more budget-friendly holiday and sometimes a lot less stress-free because planning the trip is so much easier, being local.
Travel Quote: When someone says you can’t do it, do it twice and take pictures. – Unknown
I love this quote for the reason of exactly what advice it gives. There is no greater joy than traveling somewhere when you were told it will never be possible. And yes, then those beautiful photos follow, a personal moment of sheer joy to be able to say “I’ve done it. I’ve been to…”. Another bucket list destination fulfilled.
Travel Quote: You don’t have to plan every minute. Take a breath. Trust. Let Go. And see what happens. – Unknown
As much as I love planning a trip to the actual hour (not quite minute) I thought to try the advice. And so I did. I knew where I was heading, and I had my first overnight accommodation reserved. From there, it was a surprise. I got up in the morning, decided if I should stay or move on, and act accordingly. It was a much more relaxed holiday but not to be recommended if you don’t like surprises. Because every day was a surprise! I loved it so much, that I tried it not only in South Africa but also in France.
Travel Tip: The most important tool to have is a reliable one-stop (because you don’t have hours to spend searching for information) reliable booking platform with reputable service providers where you can book direct.
Travel Quote: Once a year, go somewhere you have never been before. – Dalai Lama
We live in such unusual times and everything happens so fast, yet so slow. The COVID-19 pandemic is a perfect example of how fast things happened. The pandemic reached unimaginable proportions. But it feels the recovery period takes forever. This is taxing and stressful.
Or it could be a career, or taking care of loved ones, that add to your stress levels and impact negatively on your health. Those necessary evils can be relieved with a vacation to a new destination. Something that will take your mind off the stress factors. And for that reason Dalai Lama’s advice is great, because, in addition, you also have amazing memories to feed on until your next new holiday destination.
Travel Quote: Traveling in the company of those we love, is home in motion. – Unknown
To travel alone has its downside, and that is not being able to share something at the moment, right there and then when it happens. And for that reason, this quote is also great advice. Whether it is your friends or family, being surrounded by those you love turns a holiday into the best holiday. With fabulous memories for years to come!
THE DICTIONARY CHALLENGE
We’ve (Travel-and-Home) coined the word “tuotes”, meaning travel quotes.
Tuotes are used to refer to travel quotes such as we’ve published today. And for that matter, all sorts of travel quotes, like funny travel quotes, motivational travel quotes, inspirational travel quotes, general travel quotes, and so on…
Well, for starters it’s great fun, and secondly, it aptly describes travel quotes in just one single word! Short, to the point, catchy, and smart.
The more the word is used, the more attention it will attract from lexicographers (the people who write and edit the dictionary).
So, why not start a word-tsunami by using “tuotes” instead of travel quotes, when you quote travel phrases from famous and inspiring people!?
And by doing so, you are part of getting a brand-new word into the dictionary. A new legacy that you’re leaving behind!
Hurray! Be the first to spot the use of the new word, tuotes, elsewhere on the internet. Share your discovery – tell us where you saw it being used – and so more people will join in our word-tsunami!
We love chatting about and sharing our experiences. That said, we also love hearing your version. In return, it again helps other travelers to make up their minds as to what to do, where to stay, and so on. And so they have more ideas for their next trip. All thanks to your feedback in addition to ours.
