I want to share with you a couple of my favourite travel quotes of all time that never get boring no matter how many times I read them.

In fact they are a daily burst of inspiration while my feet lay idle. They stir the blood on a cold northern hemispheric winter morning. Whip the emotions up into a mini 'far away' frenzy, sometimes they even take me away for what pensioners would call, 'a special moment'.

I hope that they do the same for you.

"Our battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life” ~ Jack Kerouac

Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” ~ Maya Angelou

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain

Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” ~Mark Jenkins

Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” ~ Miriam Beard


  1. very nice collection of quotes...

    traveling is an addicting activity, or maybe it's our way of life which others dont seem to understand...

    a good friend once asked me, "why do you like traveling?"

    and i said, "it's the only thing in this world that makes me feel alive." :-)

    have a great day bud!

  2. alright flippy, traveling is certainly an addiction, one that i struggle to appease.

    its a disease that i hope they never find the cure for.

    Nothing beats catching the trade winds in the sails like Twain describes

    walk on you crazy nomad

  3. the only thing i am wary of when i travel is...a sprained ankle. i have this habit of staring at things while walking.

    other than that, very little else scares me.

    and that says a lot, since i live in the philippines.

    cheers to people who leave their baggages behind but bring an open mind when traveling.
