Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss

A couple of years ago I did a post for Dr. Seuss Day coupling some of my travel photos with a few favourite quotes from “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”. To celebrate the ever-relevant man’s birthday this year, here are a few more quotes from some of his other works matched up with a few more travel shots.

From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things
are everywhere.

Today you are you! That is truer than true!
There is no one alive who is you-er than you!

Don’t give up! I believe in you all!
A person’s a person, no matter how small!

The more that you read,
the more things you will know.
The more that you learn,
the more places you’ll go.

I know, up on top you are seeing great sights,
But down at the bottom we, too, should have rights.

Happy Dr. Seuss Day.

About ailsapm

Hi there! I’m Ailsa Prideaux-Mooney. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my ice cream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. And I’m just getting started. If you’ve enjoyed what you’ve read so far, I’d love you to follow my travelogue - wheresmybackpack.com - and remember, anyone who tries to tell you it’s a small world hasn’t tried to see it all.
