Opening from Hans Christian Andersen’s Diary from a travel in Germany, 1831

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give, 
To roam the roads of lands remote: 
To travel is to live.”
Hans Christian Anderson, in ‘The Fairy Tale of My Life’

To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,

To gain all while you give,

To roam the roads of lands remote:

To travel is to live.”
