The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.

    True. But sometimes it is the page with the best bit. And sometimes we can learn what is on other pages by following Cherie around on her travels. :) I am pretty sure St Augustine would have been approving of the internet.

      I came across this quote whilst I was researching my next travel adventure :-) It was quoted on one of the websites I visited.

      I agree that with the thought that St Augustine would be a fan of the internet.

      I like the page (and the book) that features in my photograph ;-)

    So true, Cherry. So true. Maybe that’s why I travel more in my senior years than read?! :D

    • CherryPie says:

      Currently I do a bit more reading than travelling. I also read when I am travelling :-)

      I also like seeing the world through other peoples eyes :-)

    I love the two above comments. I think everybody has its own story about reading books and traveling. I love traveling and I love to read about where I go or went.
    And maybe it is good that there are people that don’t fancy traveling… it will give us more space at the places we like to visit…

    I am so glad you have now 4 tires that are full of air and do what they need to do.
    I have to say that is quite nice of the garage to make the deal.
    Have a great day.

      Thanks Astrid :-) I love to read and research the places I visit both before and after my journey. It adds such a lot of depth for me and allows me to seek out the best bits of the places I visit.

      I am glad all my tyres are fully functional now. My colleague at work was rather alarmed when I told him about it. He comments were ‘you could have had a blow out on the motorway’. The thought had also crossed my mind…

  4. Who needs books anymore?
    We have Kindles now.
    Plus a page can be a very long page ;)

    I was just reading a book about anti-gravity.
    I can’t put it down. ;-)
