11 Quotes that Will Make You Want to Travel

solo

Since my childhood, traveling has always been fascinating to me. I never quite understood how people could spend the whole of their lives living in one place. There is so much out there, don’t they get curious, was what I always questioned. 

I was sure that I could never be able to live in one place all my life. What if the next big thing was right around the corner and I missed it because I refused to move from my spot? That thought always scared me.

Growing up, I have come to realize that fear isn’t what was fueling my need to get out in the world. It was hunger, hunger to see the world, to explore

Here are some quotes that I resonate with and hopefully can inspire you to travel.

  • “Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you.

  • “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous
  • “Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life.” – Michael Palin
  • “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did.” – Mark Twain
  • “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.” – Terry Pratchett
