Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Glaciers and Ferry Rides in Norway

One of the things that my hosts did for me last year when I visited was to take me on perhaps the longest road trip of my life – around 300 km in all, including around two ferry rides. I have to confess that my stomach was pretty much unsettled when we got to the glaciers, it was probably the high altitude combined with the winding pathways that did me in. I am usually a stalwart traveler, hardly ever getting sick, but this one time was particularly noteworthy. But the view was just so worth it.

“The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see what’s in between, and they took great pleasure in doing just that.”
― Norton Juster, The Phantom Tollbooth

“We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.”
― Henry Ward Beecher

“…there ain’t no journey what don’t change you some.”
― David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas

“No single decision you ever made has led in a straight line to where you find yourself now. You peeked down some roads and took a few steps before turning back. You followed some roads that came to a dead end and others that got lost at too many intersections. Ultimately, all roads are connected to all other roads.”
― Deepak Chopra

“If you find yourself drawn to an event against all logic, go. The universe is telling you something.”
― Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road

“Memory is the basis of every journey.”
― Stephen King, Dreamcatcher

“Here today, up and off to somewhere else tomorrow! Travel, change, interest, excitement! The whole world before you, and a horizon that’s always changing!”
― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows

“I finally felt myself lifted definitively away on the winds of adventure toward worlds I envisaged would be stranger than they were, into situations I imagined would be much more normal than they turned out to be.”
― Ernesto Che Guevara

“That’s the place to get to—nowhere. One wants to wander away from the world’s somewheres, into our own nowhere.”
― D.H. Lawrence, Women in Love

“It is easier to bear the worries of wandering than to find peace in your hometown, where only the sage can live in a happy house surrounded by trite troubles and daily distractions.”
― Hermann Hesse
