  2. I love that quote by Tom Cahill…it’s definitely true that the joy and fun in travelling is all the people you meet along the way, not just the distance you go. Thanks so much for sharing….also, if I haven’t had a chance to introduce myself, I’m Naomi, & I’m pretty sure that I wandered over here from Matador :)

    • Thanks for stopping by Naomi. That’s one of my favourite quotes. I think the friends we make shape our experiences in life & travel more than anything else. I’m popping over to visit your blog now..
