Top 30 Best Travel Quotes

  1. “Travel is rebellion in its purest form. We follow our heart. We free ourselves of labels. We lose control willingly. We trade a role for reality. We love the unfamiliar. We trust strangers. We own only what we can carry. We search for better questions, not answers. We truly graduate. We, sometimes, choose never to come back.”
  2. “Don’t be that person who is too busy when you are young and then too tired when you are old”

  3. “And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness, in which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end. “

  4. “A great way to learn about your country is to leave it.”

  5. “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”

  6. “When I say I want to travel I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops. I don’t want to be a tourist. When I say I want to travel I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it. I want to discover small coffee shops in Italy and France. I want to walk on beaches in Australia and browse the book stores of England. I want to hike the Great Wall of China and go cliff diving in Hawaii. I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same. I want to take pictures of things and places and people I meet. I want my mind to be in constant awe of life on earth. I want to see things with new eyes. I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to, the things I’ve seen and the people I’ve met. I want to come home and realize that I have not come home whole but have left a piece of my heart in each place I have been. This, I think, is what is at the heart of Adventure and this is why I plan on making my life one.” 

  7. “Then I realized adventures are the best way to learn.”

  8. “There’s no way I was born to just pay bills and die”

  9. “Love your fucking life. Take pictures of everything. Tell people you love them. Travel to places you have never been. Talk to random strangers. Do things that you’re scared to do. Fuck it, because so many of die and no one remembers a thing we did. Take your life and make it the best story in the world. Don’t waste that shit. “

  10. “I love places that make you realize how tiny you and your problems are.”

  11. “Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.”

  12. “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

  13. “Have stories to tell not stuff to show.”

  14. “It’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.”

  15. “I hope you fall in love with being alive. I hope you pick up flowers and read books and understand that life is so much more than a snapchat from a boy you won’t remember in a couple of years. I hope you feel pursued. I hope you have the best of friends, and even I hope you get in trouble together. I hope you make fun memories and take too many pictures and scream at the top of your lungs on roller coasters. I hope you swim in the depths of the oceans, and feel the dirt underneath your fingernails when you climb mountains. I hope you know the joys of genuine laughter, and the difference between wisdom and test scores. I hope you understand that you can be anything you want to be, but you have to work hard to get it. But I also hope you have fun. In fact, I hope you have unapologetic fun. “

  16. “The goal is to die with memories, not dreams. “


  17. “ Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.”

  18. “ Wanderlust consumed her; foreign hearts and exotic minds compelled her. She had a gypsy soul and a vibrant hope for the unknown. “

  19. “ Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled. “

  20. “Travel. Make memories. Have adventures. Because I guarantee that when you’re 85 and on your death bed you won’t think about that flashy car you bought, or the twenty pairs of designer shoes you owned. But you will think about that time you got lost in your favourite city. The nights spent falling in love under the stars and all the beautiful people you met along the way. You’ll think of the moments that made you feel truly alive. And at the very end, those memories will be the only valuable possessions you own. “

  21. “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams”

  22. If you never go, you never know.

  23. “It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, feels the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed is you. “

  24. “Travel makes you realize that no matter how much you know, there’s always more to learn. “

  25. Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. Explore. Dream. Discover.

  26. “All you need to know is that it’s possible.”

  27. “Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.”

  28. “At its best, travel should challenge our preconceptions and most cherished views, cause us to rethink our assumptions, shake us a bit, make us broader minded and more understanding.” 

  29. “ I’ll look back on this and smile because it was life and I decided to live it.”

  30. “Traveling- it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller. “

    Great post definitely inspires some wanderlust. My favorite travel quote is: “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. -Terry Pratchett”
