About Me
Hey, I'm Syb!

I like to travel and discover new lands and cultures. Here are my favorite quotations:

"Peculiar travel suggestions are dancing lessons from God." - Kurt Vonnegut, Cat's Cradle

"To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world." - Freya Stark

"There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign." - Robert Louis Stevenson

"If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home." - James Michener

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends." - Maya Angelou

"For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." - Robert Louis Stevenson

"For if every true love affair can feel like a journey to a foreign country, where you can’t quite speak the language, and you don’t know where you’re going, and you’re pulled ever deeper into the inviting darkness, every trip to a foreign country can be a love affair, where you’re left puzzling over who you are and whom you’ve fallen in love with." - Pico Iyer, Why We Travel

"it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are." - e.e. cummings

"the most wasted of all days is one without laughter." - e.e. cummings

"to be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting." - e.e. cummings

“Really, if most travellers are honest, they travel because they hate work.” – Dave Briggs

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain
