Travelling 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 write some of the lovely things about it.
Here are some of my favorite travel quotes:
You can never cross the ocean unles you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
There comes a point in your life when you need to stop reading other people’s books and write your own.
To live will be an awfully big adventure.
Actually, the best gift you could have given her was a lifetime of adventures.
LEWIS CARROLL, Alice in Wonderland
Travel is still the most intense mode of learning.
The Earth has music for those who listen.
Traveling. It leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.
It’s a funny thing coming home. Nothing changes. Everything looks the same, even smells the same. You realize what’s changed is you.
F. SCOTT FITZGERALD
And at the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.
You will never be completely at home again, because a part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.
And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.
