Traveling is inspirational in so many ways. You don’t just get to know the new culture, city or the country, but the most importantly yourself. Many books were written and so many movies were filmed about it. Obviously, it also inspired people to wrote some of the very beautiful things about it.

Here are some of my favorite travel quotes:
