To Travel is to Live (And Warm Beer)

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.”

I was reminded of this eloquent quote from Hans Christian Andersen as Mrs Landy, Janet-Planet, and I took an early morning stroll in the picturesque village of Dittisham, situated on the River Dart in Devon, England.

Yes, I hear the chorus ring out…

“There is no red dust or never ending blue skies in the South of England Baz”…

Crikey, I can live with that, for a week or two, but seriously, warm beer?

Mind you, after a couple of pints down at the Ferry Boat Inn, okay Janet, three, I didn’t realise we were counting, one can almost get used to it…

“To travel is to live”.

    Off topic, but I just finished “Wild by Nature,” by Sarah Marquis n thought of you…her last section is about her recent walk across Australia (she’d done it in the past, as well). If you haven’t already read it, you might enjoy it. Meanwhile…you’re in a great country for walking. It must be an interesting time to be there – post-Brexit vote.
