Travelling - A Different Perspective

Travelling - A Different Perspective


Travel brings its own challenges

What to bring, what to leave behind

Sun cream and summer top?


Travel brings its own challenges

Who to bring, who not to leave behind

Some scream and some won't stop


Journeys from hell, a challenge again

Train cancelled, flight delayed

Put up in a nice hotel, reward for a night


Journeys from hell, a challenging terrain

A fight for your life if you'd stayed

Put up in a filthy room, reward for your plight


People make places so they say

Friendly locals, wonderfully hospitable

Welcome honoured guest


People make places if you pay

Suspicious locals, conditions inhospitable

Not welcome refugee pest


Always a pleasure to travel

But always great to be back home

Because home is where your heart is


Always a challenge to travel

And to have been forced from your home

Because home is where your heart was broken







Travel - for the fortunate holidaymaker, who can return to their home, happy and well rested.


Or for the refugee forced to flee conflict, risk a perilous journey and leave behind their home, uncertain if or when they will ever return.
