The 3rd Rock ®
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." - Jawaharial Nehru
"Adventure is a path. Real adventure - self-determined, self-motivated, often risky - forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind - and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white." - Mark Jenkins
"Travelling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things - air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it." - Cesare Pavese
The 3rd Rock ® and Travulum ® are all about travelling and exploring the world, people and ourselves. We believe that travelling is one of the few, really sensible things a man can do in his life and we want to see the world with you. The 3rd Rock ® and Travulum ® are places where you can find friends, share travel videos, photos and music, watch live video streaming by people travelling the world and find great travel ideas.
We hope you will enjoy it!
Let me introduce myself
"I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move." - Robert Louis Stevenson
"The traveller sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see." - G.K. Chesterton
"Walking ten thousand miles of the world is better than reading ten thousand scrolls." - Chinese proverb
"The Gentle Reader will never, never know what a consummate ass he can become, until he goes abroad. I speak now, of course, in the supposition that the Gentle Reader has not been abroad, and therefore is not already a consummate ass." - Mark Twain, part of travelogue from his trip to Egypt
