“Half the fun of travel is the esthetic of lostness.”
– Ray Bradbury
We have to admit: we owe our high school English teachers a debt of gratitude. For that’s who first subjected us to American author Ray Bradbury.
Sure, we had to read Fahrenheit 451. There was no escaping it, but then we got to read The Martian Chronicles, I Sing the Body Electric, and Something Wicked This Way Comes. (Okay, we never did finish that last one. And never really liked carnivals afterwards.)
At any rate, Bradbury was a master storyteller in a variety of genres. He could capture your imagination and put words to your thoughts with a sentence, as he did with this Favorite Travel Quote.
Some of our favorite travel memories came from being lost. Some of the biggest lessons we’ve learned, the greatest things we’ve seen, the nicest people we’ve met, came from being lost. That’s the beauty of it: the unplannable, unexpected results of getting lost.
About the Photo
Somewhere in Rome. The directions said the gelateria was down this street. Or that one. Or…the one we just passed? Turns out, we were only mildly lost. The gelateria was on the street on the other side of that church. But what a beautiful church we found, tucked in this narrow corner, somewhere in Rome. (Photo by TravelLatte)
