George Moore wonders...

"A man travels the world in search of what he needs and returns home to find it."

Listen to my thoughts about George Moore's inspirational quote in the video below. You'll also discover a bit more about where I went on holiday, this year - a great train journey on The Ghan, between Adelaide and Alice Springs in Australia!.

What I Wonder...




(NOTE: Yes, I wrote any captions you see in this video. It's called self-deprecation, and it's mostly a healthy thing (I think!).)


So, as you'll notice in the video I really like these words by George Moore but I have a difficulty in coming up with a tangible example of how it applies in my life, or how it might apply in yours.

So I recorded this video whilst travelling towards the famous Ayer's Rock (real name: Uluru) in Australia, and I had a sense that something was going to change in me simply because I was going to visit this magical place.

And something did shift in me, I'm sure, but it's only when I returned home that I was able to discover what that shift/change is. (I'm still waiting, in actual fact!)

Perhaps this is what George Moore means.

Or perhaps it's about the need of the journey to reveal to the traveller what he actually needs, and to provide the ability in her or him to recognise it - and thus be able to recognise it when she returns home. (It was always there, at home, after all!)

Or perhaps this is about the inner journey one makes, a journey of discovery after discovery when nothing really changes other than your perception and apprecation of who you've always been.

Or, perhaps, this is one of those times when I do not fully understand the inspirational quote and where YOU can come to my rescue.

Yes, I'd love to hear your wisdom regarding this quote too... :-)

Thanks for reading,
Steve

Travel
by: Anonymous

I want to travel to see the world, to see places, people, culture etc.. I leave my country to migrate to Australia and during my first few days I was so excited, happy and carefree. Then later after a year or so I miss my own country so I went back home and took a long holiday. I was excited again to see the place where I called home then after my 2 months stay I missed Australia. Now I am in Australia again like to go back home. haah....confusion.....

I think we want to travel not only to see the world but to escape the current world we live in. Whatever the reason is I still love to travel. If you like to help me please feel free to
donate ;-)

George Moore's quote
by: Jennifer M

Steve, I think it simply means no matter where you go - there you are:)! It's how one is forever changed after travel but you can only see it once you are home again in familiar surroundings and not thinking about your next move - where your mind can wonder freely as opposed to trying to soak everything in :).

Hows it going?
by: Anonymous

a) Might need to work on the accent a little bit!

b) I take a walk every day along Cairns Esplanade (N.Australia), while my hubby takes his radiation treatment, and on my walk I pass an inscription on a board about Peace being inside you and not something you look for outside yourself. I take this quote to mean something like that??????????

Home - the best
by: Anonymous

I travel to various places, not actually in search of any need to satisfy but because I like to travel. Traveling accords me the opportunity to see things (cultures, languages, colors, dressing, dialects) and also to see diffrerent people, not that I would not see them while at home but just for the fun of it; because there is nowhere like home - for home is the best.
