“Each harrowing ordeal will become an adventure. For some idiotic reason, your most horrific experiences are the stories you most love to tell.” L’Auberge Espagnole, the movie
Travel KOAN What if nothing happens when we travel? No squad of screaming babies/who surround you like a corral in a 14-hour stage coach. No baggage lost or damaged No room in the back when you asked for the front. The fountains and the lights come on in their time. The rickety scaffolding disappears from the churches ("So, is that what the Duomo looks like!") No one laughs at your accent and The wine gives up its bouquet. The spacious elevators run like a Swiss watch Even in Timbuktu. Did you ever sleep as well? -- this mattress is better than at home! The desk clerk, Ivan, makes sure that the Kremlin tour has your name. You are not penalized for visiting a muddy livestock farm in England or for sampling the cheese. The drug beagle does not show interest in your bags. Every day meets its unlikely promise the jade mountains / and sampan sunsets / the water-tight safari tent and strong dollar. In Vienna, you stride down the Ringstrasse content Wiping away the Linzer torte crumbs from your lips Never seeing that the gypsy and her baby doll Are coming to meet you at the next corner.
