Quote of the Day!

27 Jul

“I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.”

Confucius

This quote can be applied in many different cases throughout life. Within the realm of traveling, however, it really rings true.

There are many stories that we hear about other people traveling, their adventures or misfortunes, but we can easily forget these stories as they are not our own.

We can even look or read about these similar journeys in books magazines, see the pictures, read the words. When we have the visual aspect of photos we can remember the feeling or emotion that we received from seeing it.

But when we actually “do” travel in our own way and have our own experiences and capture our own photographs, that is truly when we can fully understand what it is to travel. The beauty of it is, my favorite part, no one can take that away from you ever!

Let’s go “do” some traveling!!

I’m standing here at Confucius square in NYC waiting for the parade to come through.
This is the most important day in the Chinese year because it represents rebirth and continuing the wealth and prosperity of the previous year.

This new year is the year of the Rabbit!!

Xin nian kuai le!!!
