I love traveling. With frigidly cold weather here in the Northeast, I'm very much looking forward to warmer weather, and with that warmer weather, some exciting travel plans for the spring and summer:

"My mom says that when you go to a place just to see what all the other tourists see, you're a tourist. But when you go to a place and see how people live and do things in ways that are different from what you do at home, you're a traveler. I like being a traveler better than being a tourist."
-- Susan Runholt,
The Mystery of the Third Lucretia, p. 38

Are you a tourist or a traveler? What did you find Quotable this week?


  1. I wanted to join this last week, but never got around to it. :( Even though I'm a day late, I still thought I'd get in on it for this week. I'll do my best to be here next week too.

  2. You picked a wonderful passage! Thanks so much sharing it. :)
