This post represents another installment in The Big Switcheroo series – tales from last spring’s epic journey from the northeast to the Florida Keys and back – involving family, friends and an extraordinary range of adventures.
“Life is a journey, not a destination.” I don’t know who said it, but I’ve heard that quote quite often, and I do believe it’s true. So many times, we’re looking ahead to the next thing, the next year, the next smartphone, the next project, the next destination. I’ll counter with another quote, one that has always struck a chord with me: “Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift; that’s why we call it the present.” I don’t know who said that one either, but it hasn’t prevented the quote from remaining one of my favorites. The savviest travelers among us know that, while our destination is the goal, the journey along the way can be just as rewarding.
