  1. I am not a big fan of travel quotes because I find them cheesy 😂 but I have to admit that you have a good bunch on your list and pairing with your beautiful pictures from around the world makes the quotes more adequate! There are many that caught my thoughts but there is one that I like the most is: « The most beautiful thing in the world is the world itself »..JUST SAY NO MORE!❤️

  2. I love to read travel quotes. They are indeed an inspiration. I like the Chris Humphrey quote. The road is there, but you do have to decide to take it. Sometimes that first step is the hardest. The Roberto Bolano quote does inspire me to wander. You never know what is around the next corner. As someone who has lost far too many people at a young age, travel makes sure that my life does not escape me. And as a water baby, I know that water is my driving force. Thanks for some new travel quotes.

  3. I have been doing the same thing, I collected travel quotes for decades and a few years ago, started combining them with my own photos to share them! I love seeing your photo choices for many of the same quotes.

  4. Loved your compilation. This has always been my favorite – “We travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.”

    Personally, I travel because it just makes me feel alive. 🙂

    Thank you for sharing these wonderful quotes. I bookmarked it for future reference.

  5. Whenever I feel a little low, I read quotes. you have compiled a great list of travel quotes and they are quite inspiring. My favorite is “There is no WiFi in the forest, but you will get a stronger connection.” Loved reading the quotes

  6. These are some really good quotes and love your pictures. I particularly liked your first quote by Chris Humphrey. a lot ” I couldn’t agree more that more travel you need conviction more than anything else. The road to Oman from Dubai looks stunning.

  7. I have loved the travel quotes that you have accumulated in your blog especially the sun rises and the sunsets that are absolutely free that is so true. There are so many things to see in the world, so many places to explore, and yes I agree it’s the journey that matches not a destination to be honest.

    1. Yes Shreya, some natural wonders are free to be admired. And journey is always a beautiful thing which everybody should keep in mind.

  8. So many great travel quotes here i’m inspired already. I love the simple one that just says “the journey is my home.” Such a nice way to think about travel and what it means to be on the road so often.

  9. All fantastic quotes but my favourite one on this list has to be – “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is the change that goes on deep and permanent, in the ideas of living” By Miriam Beard. – defo sums up who I am.

  10. These are some great quotes. I could never get enough of inspirational travel quotes! My favorite is “Leave the road, take the trails.” By Pythagoras.

  11. Who doesn’t love a good travel quote? So many to choose from…I like “Travel – the only place where you can be lost and found in the same place.” I love getting lost when traveling, truly surrendering to where the feet want to go, and in doing so have the best memories and experiences.

  12. So many great quotes here to remind us all of why we travel (or want to travel). It’s also a good reminder that the challenges we face in making travel happen are worth every bit of it.

  13. I think about the very first quote all the time since I live in Southern California. There is so much to explore here on the road and I don’t take advantage of it as much as I should. I need to decide next year when I want to take it 🙂

  14. I love how you’ve combined the travel quotes of various people with your own beautiful photos of different places around the world, to add more emphasis. So much fun to read. One of my favourites is “The Best way to know a city is to eat it”, because food is one of the best things about travelling.

  15. I’m absolutely in love with this series of your photos with quotes! Its wall paper worthy!!! Love it all!!!
    My favourite travel quote is actually a monologue from the Tamil movie Vaaranam Aayiram which translates to: “You learn more when you’re in the streets, travelling”

  16. What a great collection of travel quotes! My favorite one is “When one door closes, pack your bags and go traveling.” I remember a time in my life when this proved to be a life-saver. It got me out of a big crisis, so thank you for reminding me how beneficial travel is!

  17. Wow! Sooooo many amazing quotes! It’s hard to pick a favorite, but I’m torn between ““I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.” and ““Not all classrooms has four walls.” I’ve worked hard to educate my four children beyond the classroom by traveling with them over the years.

  18. My favorite quote is from Kate Douglas Wiggin. I love coming home from a trip with new memories and experiences! Traveling really changes you.

  19. I think the most impactful quote in this bunch is “A journey of thousand miles must begin with a single step” By Lao Tzu

    And I say that because SO many people dream of travel, or they dream of doing something BIG with their life….but they think the mountain is too tall, or the trip too expensive, or the goal is just too grand to achieve….so they never take that first step. But once they do, they see the goal is actually MUCH closer than it previously seemed.

    1. I also agree with Mike that start is the basic essence and once you start no one can stop you. It then becomes an addiction.

  20. what a great collection of quotes. I especially love the one about no WIFI in the forest and also about meeting different people in different cities. Without travel, we remain ignorant of the world outside of our own. I think it should be required somehow 🙂

  21. These are all such beautiful quotes! I’m a big nature lover so I really resonated with the quote “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.” I love how you emphasized on travelling not being going to exotic destinations too. A lot of us tend to forget that and overlook the hidden gems in our backyards!

    1. Yes, if we look our backyard then sometimes we find hidden gems there instead of traveling to famous touristic places. Travel is to explore the world.

  22. My favorite is “There is no WiFi in the forest, but you will get a stronger connection.” By Jess Stuart. This is so true. I think that people should have real connections with people outside the digital world. Loved reading the quotes

  23. “Investment in travel is an investment in yourself” I’ve always thought of trips as a learning experience. Going to new places helps expand your mind and way of thinking.
