Even a great love can get a dent from an excruciatingly long trip... So long!

Some people can be very nice on a trip, but a real PITA in regular life...

THAT and also their proclaimed reputation. It provides a coherent indication of whether one will chose an association with you, or not.

The certainty of following the path of a friend can often bring misfortune better described as the wrong place at the wrong time

Isn't that the premise of a really terrible 90s film with John Farley/Chris Candy and Steve Nielsen/Leslie Martin?

Mark Twain’s travel writing

Twain was lucky enough to be able to travel quite a bit during his lifetime, and he detailed those experiences most famously in The Innocents Abroad , which is one of the best-selling travel books ever written, and Twain’s best-selling book during his lifetime. The book details his experiences traveling to Europe and the Middle East, and contains many of the travel quotes for which Twain is famous.

His next book, Roughing It , details his adventures in the American West, where he briefly dabbled in the 19th century lottery that was gold prospecting.

So it’s hard to imagine today, but Mark Twain could have been the Rick Steves of his time. Just with a whole lot more alcohol, and far more swearing. Imagine going on one of his tours.

Mark Twain's humour has always seemed very 'Australian' to me, even though he uses American terms. His skewed, iconoclastic view of life is typically Aussie. I think his writing style is so familiar that I can't help but relate to him. So funny & so quotable.

Ironically, life is often thought of as a journey.
Let us hope that--those we travel with--we love,
and that they give joy to our lives.
