    The quotes are excellent. I believe “Happiness is a journey, not a destination” Alfred D. Souza.

    Hi Brooke, I really liked the majority of the quotes! I actually spend my free time reading quotes for fun because I get some insights on some philosopher’s mind without actually knowing him or her.

    Anyhow, I’d also like to say that I really like your The World of Wanderlust Story ebook! Still yet to finish it, but I read it bit by bit every week because of my busy schedule. I’ve studied abroad in Florence, Italy for 1 month before and it changed my perspective on life and plenty of things. I plan to live the life you’re living, but I know it takes plenty of dedication.

    You go, girl! :^)
