Quote of the Day: Mark Twain

March 6th, 2012

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than 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.

Mark Twain

In the last couple years I’ve been trying to really live by this motto; trying to not waste my time on things that I’ll regret, in order to have time for that which I want to do. When we were talking about heading to the Dry Tortugas National Park we were discussing which way we wanted to head out and finally settled on taking a sea plane (mostly because I get horribly seasick and thought this might be the best option in order to enjoy the trip).

We’re so glad we chose this option, it was a little more expensive than taking the ferry, but it was 4 hours shorter and it was a blast. If you ever decide to head down to Dry Tortugas National Park I cannot recommend Key West Seaplane Adventures more, they were fantastic!

What things do you wish you had more time to do?
