TEDxCrocettaSalon - Travel

"Travel: it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller"
"The real voyage consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes" - Marcel Proust
"Travel: the best way to be lost and found at the same time"
"To travel is to take a journey into yourself"
"A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles"
"I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list"
"All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware"
