You lose sight of things…

You lose sight of things… and when you travel, everything balances out. – D. Gidel

It’s true that when you are busy living life, you need time away to regain your balance. This much I know – when I travel, it slows me down and gives me time to think. And that creates balance.

Having time to read (6 books!) doesn’t hurt either.

 

See what you see

The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see – G.K. Chesterton

As March break begins, I am reminded of our trip last year to Bermuda, where I learned how not to be just a tourist.

We did many tourist type activities – a crazy few days driving a scooter, hitting the beach – but the camera helped me to “see what I saw”.
