Five Tips To A Healthy Trip
Traveling By The Book

Saturday ’s Quotable Traveler

"Going up that river was like travelling back to the earliest beginnings of the world, when vegetation rioted on the earth and the big trees were kings.  An empty stream, a great silence, an impenetrable forest.... The broadening waters flowed through a mob of wooded island; you lost your way on that river as you would in a desert, and butted all day long against shoals, till you thought yourself bewitched and cut off for ever from everything you had known once - somewhere - far away - in another existence."

- Joseph Conrad 1857-1924 / Russian-Born English Writer
