As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this past week, the 8th grade students at my school took their yearly trip to Washington DC. While we spent plenty of time walking around the city, visiting each site of importance, what I was most struck by was the amount of quotes that seem to decorate the city.
Below, I have shared with you a few of my favorite quotations from around the city. Not only do these quotes have special meaning to me, but they also seem to bring the city of Washington DC to life with voices that so clearly echo from the past.
“To travel is worth any cost or sacrifice.” Elizabeth Gilbert
If travel is your first love, as it is mine, you’ll understand exactly what Gilbert means. It is worth any cost or sacrifice because travel brings much more to life than anything else ever could. For me, this is the absolute truth. Travel enhances life, gives us a feeling of being alive, and allows us to experience life in a more concentrated way. Each experience I have had while traveling has made me a better and stronger person, which is why most of my money tends to go to travel.
Just bought a pair of TOMS for my travels this summer. This was on the tag, which I thought embodied my views on travel. I couldn’t help but share it!
Not only are TOMS adorable, they are extremely comfortable. The company also participates in a One for One program that gives a pair of new shoes to a child in need when you buy a pair. Now you can look cute, while making a positive impact on the world. I can’t wait to wear them throughout all of my summer travels.
