You Should Travel by Sailboat

"When you travel, you really prefer to carve your own path and do things your way. You want to go at your own pace and do as much yourself as possible. You despise group tours. You don't travel from a schedule or plan... you just go with your intuition. You believe that travel is more about the journey than the destination. And you'd like to sail away into the sunset!"
And, once more, they're not wrong. No wonder this is one of my favourite quotes that I try to live by:
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that 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
(The irony is that if you put me in a rowing boat on a mill pond, I can be violently sea sick. Whereas, in 40 foot waves in the Aegean one late autumn, I was out there on the sun deck, drenched, riding 'em and never sick at all. I couldn't stand still in the shower - I was still going up and down and swaying from side to side with the boat - once I got back to Athens mind you.)

How Should You Travel?
