Travel Quote of the Day: "It's so hard to listen to these trains outside my window, here it comes again. And it's calling me, begging me, follow me down the track. And it moans so dark and low, baby ain't comin' back… It sounds like crying, it sounds like letting go. Breathing and lying, sinking and dying slow. And I watch from my window, touching the cold glass sky. As the train rolls down the track, I say goodbye" - Melissa Etheridge (Royal Station 4/16) #TQotD http://j.mp/1hjhNvZ

Travel Quote of the Day: “But I’ve been traveling on a boat and a plane, in a car on a bike with a bus and a train. Traveling there, traveling here, everywhere in every gear. But oh Lord we pay the price, with the spin of the wheel with the roll of the dice. Ah yeah you pay your fare. And if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there…

I’ve been traveling on a wing and a prayer, by the skin of my teeth, by the breadth of a hair. Traveling where the four winds blow, with the sun on my face, in the ice and the snow. But oooeeee, it’s a game, sometimes you’re cool, sometimes you’re lame. Ah yeah, it’s somewhere, and if you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there” - George Harrison (Any Road) #TQotD http://j.mp/1hkqVjb

Travel Quote of the Day: "If I could, baby I'd give you my world. Open up, everything's waiting for you. You can go your own way, go your own way. You can call it another lonely day. You can go your own way, go your own way" - Fleetwood Mac (Go Your Own Way) #TQotD http://j.mp/1gwc40N

Travel Quote of the Day: "I don't drink coffee I take tea my dear, I like my toast done on one side. And you can hear it in my accent when I talk, I'm an Englishman in New York.  See me walking down Fifth Avenue, a walking cane here at my side. I take it everywhere I walk, I'm an Englishman in New York.  I'm an alien I'm a legal alien, I'm an Englishman in New York" - Sting (Englishman in New York) #TQotD http://j.mp/1danzjj

Travel Quote of the Day: "Roadrunner, roadrunner, going faster miles an hour. Gonna drive past the Stop 'n' Shop, with the radio on. I'm in love with Massachusetts and the neon when it's cold outside. And the highway when it's late at night. Got the radio on, I'm like the roadrunner" - Jonathan Richman & The Modern Lovers (Roadrunner) #TQotD http://j.mp/1fMKK3z

Travel Quote of the Day: "Well now I'm no hero, that's understood. All the redemption I can offer girl, is beneath this dirty hood. With a chance to make it good somehow, hey what else can we do now? Except roll down the window, and let the wind blow back your hair. Well the night's busting open, these two lanes will take us anywhere. We got one last chance to make it real" - Bruce Springsteen (Thunder Road) #TQotD http://j.mp/MIMpLe
