The adventure being that one can never be sure that they are about to reach the destination until they do (and sometimes not even then :O)
Its the journey that matters. A journey which should not be made in a hurry at all. Why would one want to arrive before their time?
So take time and smell the roses. Enjoy the bumps and the occasional potholes.
Refuse to be carried by others, walk by yourself. Decide your own course, find a good partner whose company you would enjoy on this road. And above all, enjoy the journey.
