28. JET LAG IS FOR AMATEURS ~ DICK CLARK

best travel quote | jet lag is for amateurs

This quote is very close to our hearts.

41. “You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I hope someday you’ll join us and the world will be as one.” ~ John Lennon

Travel brings people together. It helps people understand other cultures and religions. What we think we know about other places is thrown out the window, once we land on their soil.

But to us, this quote captures exactly the essence of travel.

We never traveled to escape life, we always traveled to find ourselves.

44. “People don’t take trips, trips take people.”

Travel the World Quotes
Trips take people

We all take trips, but most of the time the trip ends up taking a life of its own.

This doesn’t have a deeper meaning it’s just a cute little travel quote we want to share.

45. “Don’t listen to what they say, go see” ~ Chinese Proverb

Travel quotes that are Inspirational
Don’t listen to what they say…

Perhaps people tell you not to go to a place because they think it is is awful when it is really beautiful.

Or perhaps someone constantly tells you how wonderful a destination is. Go and see for yourself and make up your own mind. That’s what this says to me.

46. Don’t Quit Your Day Dream

Travel quotes | Be inspired by this list of the most inspiring quotes of all time
Don’t quit your daydream

One of my favorite quotes about wanderlust.

One of the things Dave and I are most thankful for is the fact that we never stopped dreaming.

If we settled (like we were supposed to in life) we’d still be working at our jobs thinking we weren’t allowed to have dreams once we reached a certain age.

Never stop dreaming.

52. “TO TRAVEL IS TO LIVE” ~ HANS CHRISTIAN ANDERSON

Travel Quote 5 | To Travel is to Live by Hans Christian Anderson

Why does this travel quote resonate so much with us? Before we traveled, we felt that we never truly lived.

The more we worked, the more exhausted and disconnected we felt.

When we introduced travel into our lives, we felt alive again.

53. “I WANT TO MAKE MEMORIES ALL OVER THE WORLD”

I want to make memories all over the world

To us, memories mean more than things. When we are out with friends, we have so much to talk about.

It’s way more meaningful to have a memory to share than to show off a “thing.”
