“Travel is glamorous only in retrospect.”

Paul Theroux

This one made me chuckle a bit.

When we arrive safely home to the familiarity of our lives we tend to forget the misfortunes that occurred abroad.  Our travel tales become embellished and glorified during the storytelling process.  I think by nature we are programmed to recall the pleasant memories more so than the negative ones.  Isn’t it funny how the human brain works?
