My previous blog - Blogtrotter - took care of the trips recorded in digital terms between November 2000 and early 2009. For the pre-digital era - photos scanned either from negatives or from paper - I created the Revival blogs: Blogtrotter 70s & 80s as well as Blogtrotter 90s. Enjoy!
"He who does not travel does not know the value of men" - Ibn Batuta (1304-1377);
"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move" - Robert Louis Stevenson;
"Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen" - Benjamin Disraeli;
"Evolution intended us to be travellers" - Bruce Chatwin;
"Navegar é preciso, viver não é preciso" - Fernando Pessoa. The common translation is: «to sail is necessary, to live is not necessary...»; some say however that the correct translation should be «to navigate is precise, to live is not precise...». But - taking into account that it has been attributed by Plutarch to Gnaeus Pompeius, who, during a severe storm, commanded sailors to bring food from Africa to Rome… - the real meaning may be the first one!!
LOOK AND LISTEN
