An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered.
(G. K. Chesterton)

This quote captures the essence of travel perfectly. Traveling is an inconvenience, a departure from the norm. There’s scheduling, planning, and packing involved. Along the way, there are travel mishaps like traffic, delayed flights, and lost baggage. There are also many delightful things – adventure, new experiences, and fresh perspectives.
