The Greatest Inspirational
Quotes about Travel

This page is a collection of Inspirational Quotes about Travel.

Traveling is an adventure.  I've had the opportunity of driving cross country 3 times. On each trip I've met interesting people and had exciting adventures.

On one trip my brother and I stayed with a couple in New Orleans whom we never met before. It was a blast! They took us around and treated us like family.

There's something magical about traveling, it's as if the world opens up to you. I've experienced strangers acting like family and old friends opening their heart and homes along the way.

If you have the chance, take off and see the world. Give yourself some time to travel and explore. Even if it's just a weekend trip.

Allow these Inspirational Quotes about Travel to motivate you and open your mind to the unknown possibilities that await. Enjoy this page of inspirational quotes about travel.

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



The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.
-St. Augustine
