A wandering bird's-eye overview of most things even vaguely related to travel, and an opportunity for writers, artists and photographers to contribute the historical, the hysterical, the quirky and quixotic... anything with heart.

Social Responsibilities

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness” – Mark Twain

“Behind all the statements and statistics about refugees, asylum seekers, the internally displaced and the stateless are real people… we must provide a platform for their voices and – when it does not risk their safety – to give a face to the millions of people of concern” – UN Refugee Agency 

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world” – Nelson Mandela

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity” – World Health Organization 

“We look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms. The first is freedom of speech and expression – everywhere in the world. The second is freedom of every person to worship God in his own way – everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want, which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure to every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants – everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear, which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor – anywhere in the world” – Franklin D Roosevelt
