If you felt inspired by the last ten quotes, here’s ten more to get your travelling juices flowing …
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart” – Confucius
A travel adventure should be taken wholeheartedly, to be truly appreciated.
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page” – Saint Augustine
Broaden your horizons, explore, travel!
“Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”
It’s a truth that travel broadens your horizons, it enriches your life, and shows you new cultures. You can’t buy that, just the plane ticket.
“Not all those who wander are lost” – J R R Tolkien
You don’t always have to know where you’re going, travelling is about the journey and what you find and meet along the way.
“A ship in harbour is safe, but that is not what ships are built for” – John A Shedd
Get out of your comfort zone and see the world.
“Remember what Bilbo used to say: It’s a dangerous business Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to” J R R Tolkien
“We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfilment” – Hilaire Belloc
Seeing the world will show you sights you never dreamed of, and as a result you’ll meet people you wouldn’t have before. If you have a desire to travel, then if you leave it unfulfilled then basically the urge won’t go away!
“To travel is to take a journey into yourself” – Danny Kaye
You find more about yourself whilst you’re on the road, opening yourself up to more experiences. Will you come back the same, or will you change? Most people change in some way.
“Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and celebrate the journey” – Fitzhugh Mullan
Nobody said travel was going to be smooth and easy, but the potholes should be enjoyed as much as the smooth stuff. Celebrate the problems, laugh at them afterwards.
“Take only memories, leave only footprints” – Chief Seattle
Any memory you make on the road will remain with you, but make sure you leave your mark too. Maybe volunteering? What better way is there to give something back.
