“I have good news and bad news to report. The bad news is that there are more fantastic things in the world to see than you can ever possibly hope to get to. You are just not going to live long enough. Sorry. The good news, however is that there are more fantastic things in the world to see than you can ever possibly hope to get to…..and this is the really crucial point – it’s tremendously exciting to be part of a planet this is so packed with wonders that you have to choose which fraction of them you will visit. How dreary it would be, after all, if you actually could go everywhere and do everything. There would be nothing left to dream about, and dreaming, in my view, is often the best part of travel…” – Bill Bryson, Off the Tourist Trail
