Keys to a Happy Journey

Keys to a Happy Journey

Recently came across ‘Keys to a Happy Journey,” that was given to me several years back and since travel season is not far off thought I would share with everyone.


When you pack your bags to explore the beauties of the of the world consider the keys to a happy journey.

Travel Lightly—You are not traveling for people to see you.

Travel Expectantly--Every place you visit is like a surprise package to be opened.

Travel Hopefully--‘To travel hopefully’, wrote Robert Louis Stevenson, ‘is better than to arrive.’


Travel Humbly--Visit people and places with reverence and respect for their traditions and way of life.


Travel Courteously—Consideration for your fellow travelers and your hosts will smooth the way through the most difficult days.


Travel Gratefully—Show appreciation for the many things that are being done by others for your enjoyment and comfort.


Travel with an open mind—Leave your prejudices at home.


Travel with Curiosity—It is not how far you go, but how deeply you go that mines the gold of experience.  Thoreau wrote a big book about tiny Walden Pond.


Travel with Imagination—As the old Spanish Proverb puts it, ‘He who would bring home the wealth of the Indies, must carry the wealth of the Indies with him.”


Travel Fearlessly--Banish worry and timidity, the world and its people belong to you just as you belong to the world.


Travel Relaxed-- Make up your mind to have a good time---Go and let go


Travel Patiently-- it takes time to understand others, especially where there are barriers of language and customs; keep flexible and adaptable to all situations.


Travel with the spirit of a world citizen--You’ll discover that people are basically much the same the world around.  Be an ambassador of good will to all people.
