36. Life is more about enjoying the journey than reaching the destination.

Journey 
“It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”
Ernest Hemingway

This picture was taken in the UK - only one country after this to go in the tour around the world at Epcot. We stopped here and ate fish and chips and you two were fascinated with all the people who took their picture in that phone booth. You had no idea why it was so popular but wanted your picture taken in there as well.

It took us a full day tour the country showcase.

Our final destination was to be in Canada and to watch the Illuminations fireworks show. 

As it started to get dark, you both got nervous - are we going to miss the show?

 I reminded you that journey is part of the show - and that we would be able to see the final fireworks from anywhere in the world, so no rushing.

Sometimes I think we often get caught up in trying to get where we are going - I hope we will always take the time to linger, allow for detours, and to enjoy the journey.

Even if you can't identify the Beatles famous telephone booth!
