Thoughts on travel (mash-up!)

Just another research mash-up from the archives and other places for you cats (in chronological order, no less).

Parkin

From “Round the Empire” by George Parkin (1892). Link to full text in various formats – Canadians might get a particular kick out of this.

Elaine Forsyth, writing in 1943.

“Bypasses are devices which allow some people to drive from point A to point B very fast whilst other people dash from point B to point A very fast. People living at point C, being a point directly in between, are often given to wonder what’s so great about point A that so many people of point B are so keen to get there, and what’s so great about point B that so many people of point A are so keen to get there. They often wish that people would just once and for all work out where the hell they wanted to be.” – Douglas Adams, The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (1979)
