I’m not usually a big fan of travel quotes but thank you to Michael Palin for this one, he perfectly encapsulates how many of us feel about travel. Anyway, here’s his quote in full:
“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life”
I (Mr W) remember exactly when and where I was bitten by the travel bug. It was a dark November’s evening, 1989. Sitting in a one bedroom flat in Camden, North London watching Michael Palin’s ‘Around the World in 80 Days’.
