Traveling gave me the opportunity to reinvent myself. You can imagine my excitement when, one year after my bone marrow transplant and two years after my cancer diagnosis, my doctors gave me permission to take my first big trip since cancer. Freedom, finally!
To shuck oysters, you’ll need an oyster knife, a handy tool with a sturdy handle and a short, rigid blade which you can pick up for about ten bucks in a kitchenware shop or fish market. A quick trip online will yield any number of videos and slide shows with step-by-step instructions on how to shuck an oyster.
I did not think that a good movie was the equivalent of a good stage play, any more than I thought an automobile ride was as exhilarating as a drive behind a spirited horse, nor a trip by steam as soul-satisfying as a voyage by sail.
Regarding comments attributed to me in the Los Angeles Times – allegedly made on a bus trip from Germany to Holland in 1998 – I emphatically denounce such comments as false.
The first trip of the Pony Express was made in ten days – an average of two hundred miles a day. But we soon began stretching our riders and making better time.

The only time I travelled solo was when I did a 40-day trip visiting America for the first time.
A road trip in Cuba is probably top of my list.
I used to be sick of the backroads of Minnesota. I had to drive 30 miles to get home every day, take the schoolbus for two hours. But to drive through America and see the backroads, from Nashville to Memphis, Lovick to New Mexico, was incredible. It was probably the greatest trip of my life.
Is a one-way trip to Mars ever really seriously going to happen? Surely that’s morally reprehensible. However old people are, however much they say they want to go on a one-way mission, people should be thinking about the possibility of returning.
In 2007, I did a horseback trip across part of central Mongolia with my 13-year-old son – we encountered Marco Polo at all these historical places where Mongolian nomads would reference his accounts and his relationship with Kublai Khan.
I hope to take my Birthright trip.
I’m old enough, by a long shot, to remember going to the library and spending days researching. If I was looking for a line from a poem or something else I needed, that would be the trip I would have to take.
Every time – well, not every time, but in celebration of a great review or a great accolade, I take the team of Daniel to Katz’s Deli for lunch. We take the trip on the subway, we were like 40 or 50 people, and we go in the back room and have a pastrami sandwich.
Arguments of convenience lack integrity and inevitably trip you up.
You need to make a trip to Des Moines in August, because the Iowa State Fair really is a sight to see. The Iowa Fairgrounds are usually packed for those 11 days, and you get a real sense of what a classic Midwest fair is all about.
In a mahagathabandhan, who will use whom and who will trip whom is not clear.
Far be it for the public schools to teach this, but the U.S.A. was founded on basic Judeo-Christian principles. Don’t believe me – take a trip to Washington D.C. and tour the Supreme Court building. There you will see a sculpted copy of the Ten Commandments on the wall.
Beethoven‘s reputation is based entirely on gossip. The middle Beethoven represents a supreme example of a composer on an ego trip.
I’ve always been pretty indifferent towards the royal family. I went on a school trip once to Buckingham Palace, and all I can remember is that it was really boring.
I did a ‘Love Boat!’ And based on my trip on the ‘Love Boat,’ I said, ‘I’d just as soon not do ‘Fantasy Island.’
I’m a London lad, but I’m fascinated by America. I want to take a motorcycling trip across the country and see those wide open spaces.
When you’re coaching at Kentucky, you’re held to a different standard, and like in politics, there is a core group that absolutely loves you, and everyone else is trying to unseat you in any way they can – anything to trip you up; that’s what it is. If you’re not up to that, then don’t coach at Kentucky.
I became a vegetarian at seven. I went on a school trip to a farm and loved the animals.
Money is like gasoline during a road trip. You don’t want to run out of gas on your trip, but you’re not doing a tour of gas stations. You have to pay attention to money, but it shouldn’t be about the money.
I like touring. It’s like a school trip.
Fortunately for me, my mother loved travel. Our first non-beach family trip abroad – to England, France, and Switzerland – came when I was 11, and thereafter, we often tagged along on my father‘s European business trips.
Maps help us in tracking our cabs – if they’re idle, headed for a booking, or in the midst of a trip. With custom systems built atop maps using available APIs, we are able to manage our inventory extremely well, predict ETAs for customers, and optimally allocate the nearest cab to a booking request.
‘Each One Lost’ I wrote the day after I got home. My week in Afghanistan was a very short trip, but it was a powerful experience.
You know they say the most dangerous person of the world is a member of the United States Congress just home from a three-day fact-finding trip.
It was during my first trip to America in 1953 – that’s when I learned to visit museums. I was then 26 years old. When I travel, the first thing I do is to visit museums. When I go to New York City, I usually go to Broadway to see the shows.
The more we turn down questionable offers like trip insurance and scrutinize ‘one month’ trials, the less incentive companies will have to use such schemes.

If it’s a trip for pleasure, I always go with a comfortable outfit.
I think people read travel books either because they intend to take that trip, or because they would never take that trip. In a sense, as a writer you are doing the travel for the reader.
From Lady Carlisle’s trip to Moscow in 1663 to Veronica Atkinson’s tour of duty during the 1989 Romanian revolution, it is clear that very little has changed. Four hundred years of innovation, liberation, and improvement clearly bypassed the Foreign Office while making its rounds through Westminster.
Being away a lot on tour means that my family has to suffer an inordinate amount of overcompensation, as I return home with skewed ideas of what counts as quality time. I will force everyone into a cinema trip, insistent that three hours in the dark in silence is the perfect way for us all to re-engage.
One thing you notice on treks is how little people wash. I always manage to find a stream, but on one trip there was a guy who didn’t wash for six days. It was pretty disgusting.
People think of me as well-travelled, but I had not been out of Pakistan until I was picked in the Under-19 squad in 1997. The flight went from Lahore to Karachi and then from Karachi to South Africa. It was my first time on a plane and my first trip overseas.
I started when I was 15 years old. And at that time, I was not thinking about changing the world, I was doing graffiti – writing my name everywhere, using the city as a canvas. I was going in the tunnels of Paris, on the rooftops with my friends. Each trip was an excursion, was an adventure.
I have never taken a road trip. Unless you count Los Angeles to Vegas.
The reason to retire is to try to avoid embarrassment; you ought to do it before people are dropping big hints. You want to be the first to come up with the idea. You don’t want to wait until you trip and fall off the stage.
I’ve been here before and will come again, but I’m not going this trip through.
I don’t trip on that much. I just like to enjoy life and be happy.
Pablo gave me gifts any billionaire gives his girlfriend: a crocodile wallet, a trip. I imagine that Trump gave Melania wallets.
There’s something so satisfying about road trip movies – and books!
I’ve no interest in going on a road trip. If I want to go on holiday, I want to sit on a beach, swim, drink cocktails and read a book.
Every other movie is one of those action things. I mean, ‘Lost in Space’? A bunch of good actors running around shooting at special effects on a soundstage? I took my kids to see that and felt like I was on an acid trip.
But, you know, I just did a big trip in the spring to Vietnam and Cambodia and Thailand, and that’s when I bought a Kindle. I have like 15 books on this one little gizmo. But when I came home, the first night I picked up the book that was on my nightstand and I went right back to that.
The first trip I can remember would have to be to Marianna, Arkansas. My mother’s parents are from there, and we’d go every year to visit the church where they were buried. We’d attend church service that day, put flowers around their tombstones, and visit with family and friends that still lived there.
I come from a small town, so there we have this habit of talking to rickshawallahs while you are making a trip. So when I moved to Bombay, people found it strange that I do that.
You could take me anywhere. You could take me to the moon, and believe me, everybody’s going to try to take a trip to the moon to watch me fight.
I don’t remember my first trip, but I do remember when my mom took me to Disney World in Orlando. It wasn’t the rides but Epcot Center that most fascinated me. It made me want to see those countries that are represented there for real.
Brits love a road trip supporting a British fighter.
Being a competitor, you always believe you can come back. I’ll be up at 3 in the morning watching World Cup races in my hotel whether I’m in Asia on a business trip or in New York City and have to get up in 2 hours.
In the end, auditioning was a big deal. It was a long trip for us. I had to take off school and my parents had to take off work. In the end, it wasn’t very fruitful. I think it was just before high school, I decided this wasn’t much fun anymore so that was it.
One moment that changed my mentality was the first time I went to Mali when I was six. Soon after that trip, Barcelona signed me, but when I was there I saw children like me, six years old, who didn’t have shoes, while I had the opportunity to fulfil my dream. It shocked me. I was six and I didn’t understand.
Calling Jack Nicklaus’s last trip to St. Andrews was a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
On a two week road trip I know I can get by better with no underwear than no laptop.
For all that we can see from the road in China, there is a lot that we cannot see. We miss what’s behind the trees, the cover-ups, the darker side of things – the ingredients that so often drive a reporting trip.
We’re in a situation where talented, motivated school leavers and graduates can send off a hundred CVs and not get a reply, and where a trip to the Job Centre is depressing rather than inspirational. And you know what, that just feels wrong.
You know there are so many people that have touched your life both on the ice and within your career in the NHL whether it be owners, GM’s, coaches, players, trainers, all the way down. And that doesn’t even account for all of the people that you encountered outside of the game that you met along this trip, too.
I took a trip to D.C. before the Off Broadway production started, and one of the things that was really telling is that Hamilton has probably the smallest statue in all of the Mall area, and yet he’s got the greatest monument of any of them because we’re all walking around with him in our pockets.
I remember once when I was working on a magazine, and one of the male editors was going on a field trip with one of his sons. The office was full of, ‘He’s such a good dad,’ whereas I came in late from a doctor‘s appointment for one of my children and was asked, ‘Where were you? You’ll need to make up the time.’
A little bit about my family: We didn’t really come from much, and we didn’t take family trips to California, so my first trip to California was actually my first day of school.
When I made my first trip to Israel as a member of Congress, not only did I meet with the Israeli president and prime minister, but I also traveled to Ramallah to meet with the prime minister of the Palestinian Authority. That’s what being a member of Congress is about.
I lived with a coffee farmer called Dukale on a trip I made with World Vision to Ethiopia, and realised there’s no good reason for the disparity in opportunity around the world.
What’s interesting about the transportation market is that you’re often dabbling in multiple categories. The same person who might own a car is still using Uber, is still using a taxi, still might go to Avis on a business trip and rent a car.
I’ve seen too many people who struggle financially who save thousands of dollars and go on a one year trip. And then they come back out of money, thirty years old, and back to living with their parents and saying ‘I’m back to getting any job possible to get more money for travel.’
Beautiful people are always with us, as evolutionary psychologists and a trip to the news-stand confirm.
Ben Affleck exec-produced a documentary for HBO called ‘Reporter‘ about my 2007 win-a-trip journey. I take the trip each year partly to encourage young people to think about global humanitarian issues: I think blogs by a student may be more compelling for that audience than my own work.
What draws me in is that a trip is a leap in the dark. It’s like a metaphor for life. You set off from home, and in the classic travel book, you go to an unknown place. You discover a different world, and you discover yourself.
You don’t want to fall into the trip of doing a ‘Predator‘ story every week for the rest of our lives just because it gets good numbers.
Don’t get me wrong – I’ve gone to a club. But I’d much rather be with my close friends at home or a concert, or on a trip. I’ll go dancing with my grandma. She likes to cut a rug!
I don’t know exactly how I end up with some of these roles. It mystifies me sometimes, but I am a fan of sci-fi. I love being taken into a strange world, and when it’s told with imagination and credibility, I love being taken on that trip. I always have.
I am making this trip to Africa because Washington is an international city, just like Tokyo, Nigeria or Israel. As mayor, I am an international symbol. Can you deny that to Africa?
My guide had a copy of Palestine on my last trip to Gaza. He’d bring it out and show people what I was trying to do. That usually went over pretty well.
In my space journey, I felt vulnerable because we did not have anyone with medical background. When we make that big trip to Mars, we would need a doctor on board.
I went for a six-month trip around the world on a shoestring budget.
My youngest brother and I went on a ten-day canoe trip in Bowron Provincial Park in British Columbia years ago. Believe it or not, we took only granola, thinking we’d be eating a lot of lake trout. Well, we neglected to bring along a net, and our fishing line was only 8-lb. test.
I learned a long time ago that advice is a quick trip to nowhere. It’s the commitment that only you can make in yourself, the responsibility to assume control of yourself.
My wife made me a book of photographs she took of our road trip across the United States. Makes for a good coffee table book.
You can freak when you are at the Olympic Games. There are millions of cameras. Everyone is watching every move. Some people will trip where they would never trip in a routine. It’s the small thing that nerves really bring out in people.
Any East Coast road trip we have is very exciting, just being on the road, taking it all in.
Submerging myself in water makes me feel better after travelling. There’s something about it that does it for me, and I usually go for a swim after every trip.
A lot of my struggles with nutrition date back to my swimming days. I was a super-skinny young girl who would go through hours of intense training. Afterward, I’d be famished, but I had a two-hour trip home before dinner. When I did my hardest workouts, I often ate less; I was too tired to think about food.
I remember my first trip to Jaipur when I was in Class III. I was a little kid and I remember coming here with my classmates and visiting Hawamahal. The city has a charm. Along with the monuments, what I like the most is the handcrafted stuff, bags, jootis, and silver jewellery.
I’ve always listened to music while I write, but none of my work has been so directly impacted by a song as my new novel, ‘So Cold the River,’ for which the brilliant strings piece ‘Short Trip Home,’ composed by Edgar Meyer and featuring the incredible Joshua Bell on violin, inspired much of the story.
My first experience with gymnastics was when I was in daycare. We took a field trip to a gym, and I was hooked.
I first travelled to Africa at the end of 1996 and was immediately captivated. I had planned on a three-week trip, and I ended up staying two months.
Too many actors get on an ego trip and won’t do commercials, so they sit around for 20 years between jobs.
I just yesterday returned from a trip where I photographed a woman with two children whom I photographed first when she was the age of the older of the two children.
I tell people, when I train, I don’t do a Hansel and Gretel workout. I don’t drop breadcrumbs. I saved nothing for the trip home.

Exeter City’s trip to Old Trafford will be a great day for their fans but that is about it – they won’t get the result they want against Manchester United.
With my father, there was one baseball game, one football game, one fishing trip. You got one of everything. And that was all you got. It was enough, though, and I adored him. He was a god to me.
I’d like to go to Brazil I think. Do a little South America trip.
When I was 17, I went to India for six weeks and had what, at the time, was a very challenging trip. You walk down the street and you see lepers and beggars, and there were several of us, a group of Americans. I remember we were just trying to park one night somewhere and people were just sleeping in the parking lot.
I never had a ton of male friends and it’s always been something that’s really interesting to me, what brings guys together? The bonding. ‘Old School‘ is a good example of that. And even ‘Starsky’ and even ‘Road Trip.’
Whenever I start feeling too arrogant about myself, I always take a trip to the U.S. The immigration guys kick the star out of my stardom.
I went camping one time when I was twelve, to the Great Lakes. My friend stepped in really deep muddy water and started screaming and sinking. My mom ran up, and I was just standing there a foot away and wouldn’t stick out my hand to pull him up. So I’m probably not the best person to take on a camping trip.
You know, west Texas is already beautiful to view from the ground. I can’t even imagine what it must look like as you’re floating down to Earth in a capsule making its return trip from outer space.
To travel America and see everything it has to offer, with my best friend, sounds like the perfect road trip.
I took a 51 day trip through Asia; 12 countries and 26 cities. I traveled for 51 days. So, it was everywhere from Sri Lanka and that all the way to Japan, where we ended it.
If you are willing to take the trip through ‘Analogue,’ you’ll be rewarded with some of the best writing in gaming today and a look into the future of what kind of meaningful stories video games are capable of telling.

I have a freelancer’s mentality: if I leave the country for more than 24 hours on a non-work trip, I believe I will never be employed again.
After a summer trip to Switzerland, which was rich in experiences, I started writing. In the beginning, I aimed at descriptions of nature and folk life until, as the years passed, the description of man became my chief interest.
I’ve been married three times, but I’ll never forget my first trip as a young man, on my honeymoon, with my new wife.
Gérard Mourou, who was my PhD supervisor, dreamed up the idea of increasing laser intensity by orders of magnitude. He did it while he was on a ski trip with his family. He probably shouldn’t have been thinking about lasers.
The IRS targeting certain groups for harassment because of their politics would be unfair. If we found out the NSA was keeping special tabs on everyone who worshiped at a mosque or took a Bible trip through the Middle East, you’d have an uprising.
Yet while on my trip to the Middle East, the London bombings occurred. This was yet another stark reminder that if we don’t fight terrorists abroad, they just get closer to our home.
When I first came into the league, we went 13-3 with a first-round bye, and I said, ‘OK, this is how the NFL goes. This is cake. I’ll have a Super Bowl trip every couple of years.’ That’s what I thought.
A diplomat is a person who can tell you to go to hell in such a way that you actually look forward to the trip.

A band asked me to go on tour when I was 22 and asked me to play drums, and I taught myself so I could go on this trip with these people. The drums found me; I didn’t find them. When I started playing, I realized how appropriate an instrument it was for me.
It’s a trip to have a Greatest Hits record. It’s a trip.
All our efforts to guard and guide our children may just get in the way of the one thing they need most from us: to be deeply loved yet left alone so they can try a new skill, new slang, new style, new flip-flops. So they can trip a few times, make mistakes, cross them out, try again, with no one keeping score.
I was born a year after Lindbergh made his historic trip across the Atlantic.
There is nothing quite like an Ashes trip Down Under.
My grandparents used to tell me stories about their trip to Ellis Island from Russia and life on the Lower East Side of New York.
We, some cast members and I, even went on a weekend trip together and spent the weekend at an inn, because we enjoy each other’s company so much, and it was so cool.
I just love to do the songs, and that’s what I’m still about – taking people on a trip. A good trip.
Personally, I don’t take holidays; I go on trips. My idea of relaxing is taking a trip that isn’t commissioned. I’ll work just as hard, but without that nagging pressure of fulfilling a commission. Now that’s what I call a holiday.
Every time I start feeling sexy I trip.
I was shocked when some villagers called out ‘Crorepati’ during a recent trip down south. It proved that ‘KBC-2’ has caught on in the countryside as much as it has among the urban youth.
If I wouldn’t have medaled at the Olympics, it still would have been a successful trip. The medal is the icing on the cake.
I want to feel that every trip I make has enhanced me as a person.
I’ve wept for Haiti a thousand times over the years since my first trip during the Duvalier reign.
I’ve been privy to certain experiences which have allowed me to realize how fleeting time is, in any case, and how ultimately not important this is. ‘This’ being the things perhaps we trip on in life.
The longest road trip I’ve ever been on is from Minnesota to Los Angeles.
My dad planned a road trip every summer, so we always did the road trip. We did the Eastern Seaboard and learned about the history of the United States.
It’s never fun to run out of gas while on a road trip, But the adventure of trying to find gas when your in the middle a nowhere usually ends up being a funny story a few years down the line.
Sometimes I’m having conversations with my friends, and I feel like they can’t relate to me anymore. I’m like, ‘Oh, my God, let me tell you about my experience on ‘Fallon’!’ And they’ll be like, ‘Oh, my God, let me tell you about my trip to the mall!’ It sometimes feels lonely.
Just got back from a pleasure trip: I took my mother-in-law to the airport.
I started gymnastics when I was six years old. I was at day care, and they took us on a field trip to a gym club, Bannon’s Gymnastix in Houston, and that’s how I got started.
Why should American atrocities be merely unsettling, but a trip to Hanoi unconscionable?
You can find me at three in the morning in my living room with a glass of wine and really bad ’90s trip hop beats blaring from my headphones.
When you’re performing, you just have to keep pushing through. You’re human, and you’re going to make mistakes. I think even Beyonce has tripped on stage, and she’s Beyonce! We’re all human beings, and sometimes we trip in our high heels! I barely perform in high heels. I don’t know how those girls do it.
A quick trip to Paris would be nice. It’s a beautiful city, and I’ve visited several times. I like the buzz, the sights and restaurants.
The only real benefit of being famous is being recognized by head waiters and getting good tables at restaurants. The rest is part ego trip and part inconvenience.
It’s not unusual for my room to be stacked with newspapers gathered during a trip.
One of the wonderful things about this glorious holiday trip I’m on is that I’m in public with people. It hasn’t been inclined… I don’t know – something to do with the death of my wife. It’s inclined to make me isolated.
Travel for me is all about transformation, and I’m fascinated by those people who really do come back from a trip unrecognizable to themselves and perhaps open to the same possibilities they’d have written off not a month before.
Novels aren’t pedagogical instruments, or instructions in law or physics or any other discipline. A novel has to be an emotional experience, a trip of the imagination, and because science has raised so many issues that concern and affect humans, it’s a good starting place for me.
I’ve never been to anywhere in Africa except Egypt. We’ve never performed there, so I would definitely like to make that trip, probably to South Africa. I’d also like to score a movie from top to bottom. I’ve had songs in a bunch of films but never done an entire movie. I’d like to do that and have it to be a hit, too!
Look around on your next plane trip. The iPad is the new pacifier for babies and toddlers. Younger school-aged children read stories on smartphones; older boys don’t read at all, but hunch over video games. Parents and other passengers read on Kindles or skim a flotilla of email and news feeds.
When you go on a road trip, the trip itself becomes part of the story.
I mean it’s easier to be in a demonstration if it’s a trip that’s one of the reasons why the whole thing fell apart in 1971, because it wasn’t a trip any longer.
But I’ll never forget my trip to Las Vegas. I’m a huge rollercoaster fan and we did the one at the Stratosphere, which curls around the hotel, and there’s one that dips out from the roof then comes back in. That was intense.
For ‘The Trip To Bountiful,’ I was worried about being too heavy, because I supposedly had just gotten out of the hospital.
So far, my trip in Australia has been absolutely lovely – wonderful country, wonderful people… And then there’s Melbourne.
I understand the art of PR, social media, gossip, and what that does for businesses, so I don’t really trip off of it.
I do have an office where about 70 percent of my writing gets done, but sometimes it does get a bit stir-crazy to be cooped up in there, so I’ll grab my laptop and write somewhere else: another room in the house, out on the patio, or even Heaven-forbid, a trip to Starbucks. But I also write on the road.
You’ve got to take each step as it comes – you can’t think about 20 steps away because it will distract you and trip you up.
I vividly remember early on in my career when I was eight months pregnant, working literally around the clock, and worrying that each trip to the restroom or my need to catch the occasional catnap was causing my colleagues to question whether I could keep up.
For me, music is this incredibly cerebral trip. You turn on the radio or put on a record, and it’s your song, it’s what you see.
Directing your first film is like showing up to the field trip in seventh grade, getting on the bus, and making an announcement, ‘So today I’m driving the bus.’ And everybody’s like, ‘What?’ And you’re like, ‘I’m gonna drive the bus.’ And they’re like, ‘But you don’t know how to drive the bus.’
Nobody was ever better than Roddy Piper was when it came to interviews. He didn’t pull no punches. He wasn’t afraid of nothin‘ or nobody. He was a trip, and he was good people, too. He was a good friend. A damn good friend.
When Dickens arrives in the United States in November of 1867, he’s already in questionable health. So by the end of the trip, he was really in failing condition, and really, he would never recover completely after this point, and you could sort of draw a straight line to his ultimate decline and death.
I feel like even if I was to, say, trip and fall over on the way to the car and scratch all my arm, by the time I got in the car, it would be blacked out in my head.
