Travel in Hope.

We like to help people and we really like to help people.

There is a feeling here at book fair vans that it's human nature to help each other, so when someone says they have a problem getting what they need to a book fair at the last minute, we're happy to hear from them and do what we can to help.

Travelling to Bologna is a big draw for the team, after a long winter the chance to cross the Alps and head south for some early spring warmth and sunshine, does create a buzz. I'm sure my colleagues will post the odd piece or two over the coming weeks. In anticipation of this I've put together a short list of quotes on travelling, in the hope that we all have an easy journey to Bologna.

The first one has already crept out but it's worth seeing again because it's elegant, ties books and travelling together.

β€œThe world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” St. Augustine.

There are plenty more to come but do feel free to share any that you know. Drop them in to the comments box, tweet them to us @thebfv or email to
