Why Travel Sickness?

Man’s desire to explore has been responsible for some of his greatest achievements and for some of his greatest travesties. You would think that when one finds a place in life where he is safe, secure and comfortable that one would be happy to stay in one place. But there is something from afar that calls to you. It might be called a quest, a search for truth & knowledge, a desire to connect. But while many would call travel a noble endeavour, some might call it a sickness. That’s not why we called the blog travelsickness. It’s because every time we travel, Claire gets sick. Her mind and spirit are open to travel. Her large intestine wants to stay home.

“Travel is glamorous only in retrospect“, Paul Theroux

“ The World is a book and those who do not travel read only a page”, Saint Augustine

“If God had intended man to stay home, he’d have given us free cable.” Alan Barnett.

We are writing this blog for ourselves in order to preserve the detail and richness of our travels. For those that are interested we invite you to follow along with us.  For those that choose not to, don’t ask us to look at your slides after your next trip.

    It sounds like you guys are off to a great start; hope Claire feels better. As I suspected, very interesting blog – not ‘Boering’ at all!
