My yorkie loved to travel. Picking up the keys to the car would make her crazy happy. She also enjoyed planes and trains.

I've loved Robert Louis Stevenson's poetry all my life. Especially "A Child's Garden of Verses." The way he writes about his longing for "foreign lands" has always given me a feeling of nostalgia--even though I have never had the desire to travel.

Travelling is full of surprises and many of them are unplesant. Home Sweet Home is my motto.

Either you don't have/like your home or any place out there feels just like home.

It seems to me It was already posted, maybe this summer even, but in any case it's a very meaningful saying.

Generally, he was a very intelligent and talented writer. I like his books, his images, and his ideas very much.

The quote in context:

From :"Travels with a Donkey in the Cévennes" or " Travels with an ass through the Cevennes " (1878).


(At the end of the last century, the Scottish writer Robert Louis Stevenson undertook a voyage as a recluse through the Cevennes to search for the heart of camisarde. On the basis of Monastier sur Gazeille with for his only partner an ass, it will end to Saint Jean of Gard after a high tour of and be recorded in the book)

Camisards were Huguenots (French Protestants) of the rugged and isolated Cévennes region of south-central France, who raised an insurrection against the persecutions :


For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move; to feel the needs and hitches of our life more nearly; to come down off this feather-bed of civilisation, and find the globe granite underfoot and strewn with cutting flints. ”

Reminds me of a book by John Steinbeck - Travels With Charley.

Except I don't think he had a Yorkshire Terrier!

(although terriers are the coolest dogs)

Is he trying to be mobile or what? A big cage like the one for a chipmunk will do just fine.

Love his Kindnapped. It was fancinating.

I do agree with R.L. Stevenson. True traveller travels for travel's sake.

Nowadays it is not necessary to travel. Through the computer you can go all around the world.What really matters is how you feel not where you are.

LIKE RLS says, it's The Journey, the process to get 'there' and what one can learn from that experience. Best school of learning ain' some campus somewhere, it's The School of Travel'.......in my humble opinion/IMHO.Think
