Travel Quotation 73 – Herman Melville

      Noted American author of Moby Dick and other works, Mr Melville seems to be seeking the ultimate in authentic and off-the-beaten-track travel, when he says,
 
           "it is not down in any map; true places never are."
 
           Unfortunately, for most travelers, if a place is not on a map, they will never encounter it. Those who head off into the wilderness might approach this Melville ideal, but, today, most of the world has been explored and mapped and discovered. Although true adventurers still exist, they tend to frequent the rare places on earth which have not been thoroughly visited.
