Well, this really is the last post of
Stephen and Mary @Guyana
and I hope that you have enjoyed reading our adventures. If we have our way, it won't be the last one and there will be many more adventures to come but this particular one has ended and we must "get on".
For anyone out there who is thinking of doing a VSO placement, I can only encourage you and hope that you have a time as rewarding as the two of us.
And so I leave you with the following........
"The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page." ~ St. Augustine
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." ~ Mark Twain
"A journey of a thousand miles starts in front of your feet." ~ Lao-tzu
"Two roads diverged in a woods, and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference." ~ Robert Frost
And finally my favourite .........
"Travel has a way of stretching the mind. The stretch comes not from
travel's immediate rewards, the inevitable myriad of new sights,
smells and sounds, but with experiencing firsthand
how others do differently
what we believed to be the right and only way."
From "Guess who?
