There are many reasons for traveling, including recreation and tourism, volunteer travel for charity or vacationing, business travel or migration to begin life somewhere else, exploration and research travel or getting to know other cultures, visiting friends and relatives or taking personal time for building interpersonal relationships. Travelers may use human-powered transport such as walking or bicycling or vehicles, such as public transport, automobiles, trains and airplanes. But, no matter your own personal reason that you usually travel, you can’t deny the pleasure of traveling.
I bet there were be several times you saw a beautiful place in a postcard, in a travel magazine, on the internet or at some shared photos of a friend who traveled recently and you felt a little bit jealous because, once more, you decided staying home.
Maybe your financial problems are too big to spend them in traveling but traveling isn’t privilege of rich people and that’s why there are so many ways to travel. Or, maybe, you may love the idea of traveling but you’re too scared to make this decision and if that’s true, then the only obstacle is yourself and you must find a way to overcome your fears and doubts to make your passion come true.
For me, traveling is a huge source of knowledge and experience that you’ll carry within yourself for a lifetime and you don’t have to be always with a friend. So, here are some inspirational Travel Quotes that will motivate you to plan your next (or first) trip:
«Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life is not meant to be lived in one place!»
«Please be a traveler, not a tourist. Try new things, meet new people, and look beyond what’s right in front of you. Those are the keys to understanding this amazing world we live in!»
«It’s better to see something once than to hear about it a thousand times!»
«I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list!»
«I travel a lot, I hate having my life disrupted by routine!»
«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 markets on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart and on you body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind!»
«Travel makes you realize that no matter how much you know, there’s always more to learn!»
«You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place!»
«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!»
«So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun!»
