In trying to explain to someone yesterday why I like to travel so much, this popped out of my mouth:

"When you travel you leave your baggage at home."

Is anyone else the author (however unwittingly) of their own travel philosophy? Wocca, I'm counting on you here! ;)

Once you go beyond your everyday habits, and the constraints of your own nationality ... then you begin to realize your full self

It's better than being at work.

There's nothing philosophial about my approach to travel. I get 2 months leave a year from work, so why hang around the UK when i can get out and about on this little planet of ours

Two months?

My new travel philosophy is going to be "Find a job with more time off."

I forgot to mention i work 4 days then have 4 days off, work 4 then 4 off etc etc, when i'm not on my 2 months holiday!!! It would certainly be a challenge to find a job with more time off!!!

I was thinking the same thing...two months??? Wow, I only have 2 weeks but I always end up getting four because I work so many hours. But the thing is I HAVE TO WORK FOR IT! Thats it, I am moving to Europe!
