Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember and remember more than I have seen.

Benjamin Disraeli

The average tourist wants to go to places where there are no tourists.

Visits give pleasure; if not the arrival then the departure.

Love the second one. It reminds me of why so many people hate Rick Steves. He's turned more places into tourist traps than practically any other travel writer I can think of.

LOL Andie I often think of that when I watch Rick Steves. There goes another great place.

Good quotes all Anneliese. Love the Disraeli quote. It's funny what the mind thinks it remembers sometimes.

Thanks for a great week of quotes. I've read late most nights with a dog on lap instead of a keyboard, but read and enjoyed nonetheless.
