QOTD #12 - On coming home

"No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. "
Lin Yutang
I've been off on a work thing for a few days, and later today will get on a plane pointed for home. As much as I enjoy the newness of seeing a new slice of the planet, I always prefer the return leg because of what awaits at the end.

I guess I'm a bit of a homebody, after all. Or I just don't like being away from my family. Yes, the second one.

Your turn: The best part of travel is...?

...everything. I love travelling: new sounds, sights and smells, I enjoy travelling even when everything seems to go wrong :)

The best part of travel is.... I cannot think of a good part of travel these days. Perhaps simply getting there in one piece.

I did see a sign you might like... I guess it would be on the topic..."growing older". It read....

"I have a perfect photographic memory... I'm just all out of film!"

... for me also, after seeing and doing new things, it's the feeling of being home, and knowing where I belong.
