As you set out for Ithaka, hope that your voyage is long and full of adventures and discovery.
Don’t be afraid of the likes of Laestrygonians, Poseidon, or Cyclopes...
... you’ll never encounter them as long as you keep your thoughts raised high.
May you stop at Phoenician trading stations to buy many fine things.
And may you visit many Egyptian cities to gather stores of knowledge from their scholars.
Always keep Ithaka in your mind, but don’t rush your journey. Take your time and return to Ithaka old and wealthy with all you’ve gained on your trip. Ithaka gave you this journey, and now she has nothing more to give.
