    Hi Karla, hope you’re well and having adventures! This is my favorite ever travel quote:

    “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”

    It’s from A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett. 🙂
    Happy new year!

      Yes things are great thank you, how about you?

      Wow, that is an awesome quote. It’s the 1st time I’ve ever seen it but love it. Very true!

      You need to go out and explore, only to come back home and appreciate everything that we’ve got right?

      Happy New Year to you & your family 🙂
