Postcard from Turkey

A Postcard from Turkey sent by Simone

A Postcard from Turkey sent by Simone

My dear friend Simone is currently on a world tour. She has already seen many places and the last time I heard from her, she was heading to Italy. Go for it Simone. Strike while the iron is hot. Travel makes a person well-rounded and makes her/him better equipped with cultural knowledge and enhanced understanding of certain countries different from one’s own.

Traveling Quotes below are sourced from Think Exist

Only the traveling is good which reveals to me the value of home and enables me to enjoy it better.

Henry David Thoreau (American Essayist, Poet and Philosopher, 18171862)

Traveling through the world produces a marvelous clarity in the judgment of men. We are all of us confined and enclosed within ourselves, and see no farther than the end of our nose. This great world is a mirror where we must see ourselves in order to know ourselves. There are so many different tempers, so many different points of view, judgments, opinions, laws and customs to teach us to judge wisely on our own, and to teach our judgment to recognize its imperfection and natural weakness. silvertoes

Michel de Montaigne (French Philosopher and Writer. 15331592)

    Hello for Simone, I just tried to call the phone number of Violy Sapalit to ask if everything is okay with the taifun in the Philipines and it is, nobody answering which might be due to the time difference, so here it is 11 AM. If you friend tried northern from Italy, here is Schwäbisch Gmünd, Sao Francisco, Caritas, we try to help, everyday.
