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. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.
– Anthony Bourdain
Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.
Live your life by a compass not a clock.
– Stephen Covey
We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.
We travel for romance, we travel for architecture, and we travel to be lost.
– Ray Bradbury
Traveling’s not something you’re good at. It’s something you do, like breathing.
– Gayle Foreman
We travel initially to lose ourselves and we travel next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel in essence to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in and fall in love once more.
– Pico Iyer
Better to see something once, than hear about it a thousand times…
Live life with no excuses, travel with no regret.
– Oscar Wilde
Jobs fill your pockets, but adventures fill your soul.
– Jaime Lyn
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
There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I’m born to leave.
