Travel by Chris Guillebeau
If we live truly, we shall see truly. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not everyone wants to travel the world, but most people can identify at least one place in the world they’d like to visit before they die. Where is that place for you, and what will you do to make sure you get there?

I’ve always wanted to see the Northern Lights while on an Alaskan Cruise. Something about this phenomenon just is awe inspiring to me. I’m sure some day I will get there. What will I do to make sure I get there? Hmm let’s say this. I’ll see it before 50.
Done and done.
Your genuine action will explain itself, and will explain your other genuine actions. Your conformity explains nothing. The force of character is cumulative. – Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
If ‘the voyage of the best ship is a zigzag line of a hundred tacks,’ then it is more genuine to be present today than to recount yesterdays. How would you describe today using only one sentence? Tell today’s sentence to one other person. Repeat each day.
Here is how I describe today (or the rest of this year), “The time to rebuild is now, don’t F***(!) it up.”
Sorry for the expletive but in this case, it was pretty necessary to get the point across of the severity of not messing things up (for the second, third, forth time).
