Traveling towards Home...

Travel

Do you find that throughout your travels, no matter where you go, you discover a piece of Home... a plane of wider context, a connectedness and familiarity, a space that leads you closer to who you're becoming and reveals how marvelously you fit into this amazing world.

Au revoir August and new discoveries and slow summer days with my boys... until next year.

  1. So true what you are saying -but not just travelling but living in a different country and speaking a different language opens up your whole self. Wishing you all a good rentrée - I am still learning my third language.

    1. Merci Melinda! The boys were reluctant to return (summer break is shorter here in France), but so far so good. They're happy to reconnect with their friends :)

  3. The photos are.... wistful {having or showing a feeling of vague or regretful longing} Love them. And, oh boy, do I miss train travel!

    1. Wistful... just love that word. It's perfect for train travel, visiting then leaving a place, watching the landscape undulate and shift around you...

  12. I definitely feel that way when I travel. It's as if I can really make a home anywhere when you realize that culture can be different, but we are all the same under all the culture and language differences. I remember the moment well when I once viewed Thai people as so different because of language and culture, but after years and years I discovered that we were really a lot alike. I love travel both for similarity and differences.

  13. It always seems to me that anticipation of a journey is the best part and the return is less so. Your images depict these feelings especially in monotone, Catherine.

  14. Summer gone but the memories you made remain. Hope those boys have a wonderful school year.

  15. Traveling always takes on a double meaning for me: there is a geographic dimension you can follow on a map and then the mental dimension. They are intertwined and that's also what makes traveling so fascinating. I can confirm - if need be - that I am still not ready to let summer go... If you have a cure for this, I'll take it!
