Travel Quote Series – The Anticipation of Lands Unknown

Travel Quote - Departure into unkown lands


I would personally qualify the above with the addition of two words: ‘Some of….’

It might be considered blasphemous in the travel blogging community, and among the propagators of solo and full time travel, to admit to not all (my) gladdest moments being travel related. But I shall be quick to add, that while the anticipation of a departure into lands unknown does not quite measure up to gazing upon the face of my newborn or the heart-swelling pleasure of a trusting grandchild’s hand in mine….it does come close.

What are your gladdest moments?

  1. Lovely quote. I also love to travel. But my happiest moments are with my family. You mentioned two of them: gazing on the face of one of my newborn children or grandchildren and spending time with them. 😉

  2. I think I agree…because this also includes reading new books and meeting new people and…well, I agree.

  3. My gladdest moment today was when I asked Chevvy [my dog] for a kiss, and she gave it unquestionably. Each day has one of those moments.

  4. At this time I would like to mention a quote from the movie “The secret life of Walter Mitty”: To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
    One of the best ever.

  5. For gladdest moments- I’m with you on seeing the face of your newborn and the feel of the grandchild’s hand. The travel to unknown parts can be exhilarating but I’m always glad to be back home, reunited with my familiar bed.
