Did you read the 30 travel quotes that pushed me to travel in the first place?
Here are 20 more that inspire me to keep going, keep exploring and never settle!
Most good things happen without a plan: friendships, falling in love, finding a job, and so on. If you want to make your new year count, you’ll need to be intentional — not by setting goals, but by making space in your life for what really matters. -Jeff Goins
You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place. Like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again. -AzarNasifi
Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.’” – Lisa St. Aubin de Teran
There is something special about a quiet untouched forest that just pulls you into the moment. Something that no parks will ever be able to achieve. Isn’t that what we’re all searching for in life? To just be happy and content in the moment, to just be there in the “now”? –Jon Krakauer
This is how it works: a calm and centered person makes different decisions than a stressed person does. An angry person chooses differently than a joyful one. When the nervous system is harmonized, we begin to resonate with calmer people and places. We slowly discover that we don’t need such intense stimuli to feel alive, so we let go, little by little, almost unconsciously, of negative habits, foods, and substances. We need fewer stimuli yet feel more alive. These apparently small changes accumulatively redirect the course of our life. –Max Strom
Figure out what your purpose is in life, what you really and truly want to do with yoru time and your life; then be willing to sacrifice everythigna nd then some to achieve it. If you are not willing to make the sacrifice then keep searching – Quintina Ragnacci
Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? – Mary Oliver, The Summer Day
The edge is a great place to be. Inside the box is too dark. Outside the box, there’s no leverage. But on the edge of the box, you can get things done! – Seth Godin
For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again. – From The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button
May all your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view……where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you.. –Edward Abbey
The world lies in the hands of those who have the courage to dream and who take risk of living out their dreams – each according to his or her own talent –Paulo Coelho
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, no matter how small. And in return, life and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks on your body or on your heart are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt. – Anthony Bourdain
I’m a dreamer. a glassy wave seeker, an art maker, and a passport stamp collector. I have a master in laughter, and am a world renown mess maker. I’m a wannabe world changer, a frequent smiler, a devoted pray-er, and an avid forgiver. I’m a sand magnet and sun seeker, an accident prone adventurer, and hopefully, when I look back, a professional life-rider, and full-fledged compassion giver.
If you don’t do something that you love because you are scared to lose your freedom, you already lost your freedom.
Travel the world, fill your suitcase with treasures. They all have a story that becomes a memory for life.
I beg young people to travel. If you don’t have a passport, get one. Take a summer, get a backpack and go to Delhi, go to Saigon, go to Bangkok, go to Kenya. Have your mind blown, eat interesting food, dig some interesting people, have an adventure, be careful. Come back and you’re going to see your country differently, you’re going to see your president differently, no matter who it is. Music, culture, food, water. Your showers will become shorter. You’re going to get a sense of what globalization looks like. It’s not what Tom Friedman writes about, I’m sorry. You’re going to see that global climate change is very real. And that for some people, their day consists of walking 12 miles for four buckets of water. And so there are lessons that you can’t get out of a book that are waiting for you at the other end of that flight. A lot of people – Americans and Europeans – come back and go “ohhhh”, and the lightbulb goes on. – Henry Rollins
Life is not something that “has” meaning. It’s something we give meaning to. You don’t end up with a meaningful life, you create it.
The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins. – Bob Moawad
You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.
If you don’t do wild things while you’re young, you’ll have nothing to smile about when you’re old.
…and a bonus in case you haven’t gotten enough inspiration yet 🙂
Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.
