All that is gold does not glitter

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
Tolkein

I have two great friends who travelled to Europe last year – one had this quote as the header for her blog, but for some reason I always read it as, Not all those who wonder are lost… good one Jess.

But this is my top take of the travellers getting into the European spirit. On my love for tourists scale, it rates highly (note to self: in order to best continue the attempt to disguise my touristic ways ensure that you remove luggage tags when wandering).
