Throw off the Bowlines

I am so glad we decided to go.
Even if on a whim.
All risks aside.
(Admittedly, thoughts of me and 4 small children, with limited food and water,
broken down, or a flat tire, on the roadside, in the mountains in Germany
crossed my mind more than once. It did.)
And people back at Stuttgart were quite shocked to hear that
we traveled alone, so far, to unfamiliar territory, unplanned.
One friend called it "quite ambitious".

But as another good friend, Mark (Twain, that is)
once stated,

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by
the things that you didn't do then by the ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover."

He's right you know!
What did you discover today?
