Staying and Leaving

I read some of the most practical travel advice yet today:

“A friend of mine would never leave a place until he’d had a good time there.  Another friend would not leave a destination until he had learnt something encouraging about the people and their culture.  Both are currently stuck in Brisbane.

I would never suggest that you set yourself such stringent criteria on what is in essence such an arbitrary decision.  If you’re having a good time – stay.  If you’ve met someone you fancy and who fancies you – stay.  If the police are closing in on you – go.
