Every traveller, at least once, has to say something about travelling, they must do it, it is a stonewritten rule, here a compendium of the best quotes said by the greatest travellers.

Just to help to keep on mind that we are, all of us, just small men in a small planet lost in deepest void we ever imagined. How we could just watch ? How we could just smell that parfume from the windows of our home ? Go out guys…go out and enjoy the show.bkyrn5oat7m
