Happy Hump Day!

“So how are you finding ‘hump day’?”

“EXCUSE ME?!”

I think my shocked and confused expression said it all. I’d never heard of anything called ‘hump day’ and as far as I was concerned – and I think a fair few English ladies would agree – it could come across as a somewhat inappropriate question.

“How are you finding Wednesday….I mean Wednesday!”

After a sigh of relief and laughing off the misunderstanding, it turns out hump day is commonly used by Canadians when referring to the uphill struggle to the middle of the week (Wednesday), after which the weekend is in sight and gets that little bit closer.

With that in mind, I thought I’d share an inspirational quote by Maya Angelou which (I think) perfectly sums up how travel can unite us, whether it be in that passing glance to long friendships forged through life’s great adventure.

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all people cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends” – Maya Angelou
