And To All a Good Flight....

The end of the year is always a time for me to collect my thoughts, to reflect back on how far I've come and maybe where I'd like to go next.  The more I travel, even for very short trips, the more I've come to appreciate what these trips and destinations have taught me, and have tried to put them into words.  To close out 2016, I'm giving a shot to putting these mid-flight notes together with some of my favorite travel photos from the year.  So, at the risk of sounding like a fortune cookie, here we go....

Chicago O'Hare
 'If there is a universal language, it's travel.'

Panama City from the skies.
'The wonders of the world are not a thing of the past.' 
Cape Cod National Seashore
 'Sometimes solitude is necessary, and is not at all the same as loneliness.' 

View from The Wing, Hong Kong
 'Being able to find familiarity in the foreign is a gift.'

The Red Suite, HND 1st Class
 'Passion for an interest, no matter how unique, is never something that should be apologized for.'
Morning Trail, The Peak, HKG
 'The constant feeling that the thing you're searching for might be just ahead is nothing to be worried about.  In fact, it may be the way to keep moving forward.' 

TBIT Pavilion, LAX
 'You can learn something from everyone you meet.  Yes, everyone.'

Hong Kong Harbor
 'In transit, it's best to think of time as an illusion.  Bedtime, doubly so.' 

"The Bean," Chicago
 'There are so many places to go in this world....

Seattle, WA
 ....But don't forget to enjoy the beauty of coming home again.'

Best wishes to all, and to all a good flight,
