I admit it, I’m a self-proclaimed quote junkie. There is something so powerful about words – Books, song lyrics, love letters, good conversation. I’m a sucker for it all. So as I sit at here at home trying to tame my seemingly never-ending wanderlust, I decided to go through some of the best travel-related quotes that I’ve accumulated throughout the years. I hope that some of them touch you as they did for me 🙂
Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing the lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain”. – Jack Kerouac
The traveler’s rush that hits you upon arrival to a new place is like a drug. And like a drug, the more you expose yourself to it, the more you want it. – Clayton B. Cornell
I’d rather have a passport full of stamps than a house full of stuff.
In the world through which I travel, I am endlessly creating myself.
I can’t buy happiness, but I can buy a plane ticket and that’s pretty close.
The world is a book, and those who don’t travel only read one page.
But that’s the glory of foreign travel, as far as I am concerned. I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly, you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work. You can’t even reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses. -Bill Bryson
This heart of mine was made to travel the world.
My favorite thing to do is to go where I’ve never been.
Life is short, and the world is wide.
Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny space you occupy in the world.
I have left my heart in so many places.
Better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times.
Actually, the best gift you could’ve given her was a lifetime of adventures. – Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Travel with awe, wonder, & gratitude. Take moments and memories over possessions.
There’s the whole world at your feet. – Mary Poppins
And then I realized that adventures are the best way to learn.
I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to, and people I’ve never met.
Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown.
They should tell you when you’re born: have a suitcase heart, be ready to travel.
