Meanwhile on the home front some Aussies restrict their movements to seeing the wonders of Australia, while others satisfy their wanderlust by overseas trips to all parts of the world.
The urge to explore seems inbuilt in our nature, from our early crawling days when we ventured from room to room, to the dream holiday we often plan for that special time in the future.
It is often been said our life is a journey. If this is so, then we are all explorers searching the unknown, looking for the best pathway through life.
If we are on a journey through life perhaps we should resolve, not only to enjoy the trip, but to help our fellow travellers enjoy themselves as well.
