The 100 Best Inspirational Travel Quotes to Spark Your Next Adventure

Inspirational Travel Quotes

I was a voracious reader when I was growing up, typically reading two books a week on average.

My lower-middle class family didn’t have the money to do much in the way of traveling, outside of the occasional camping trip in North Georgia . Both my parents worked, and my dad worked multiple jobs to support his family of five.

The furthest we ever traveled was a trip to visit my godparents in Virginia when I was 14. So instead I read books about travel and adventure long before I had the financial means to start taking adventures of my own.

It was the written word that originally fueled my travel dreams, from Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island  and Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Books  to Ernest Hemingway’s The Old Man and the Sea .

It was through Henry David Thoreau’s Walden , John Muir’s Our National Parks ,  and Ralph Waldo Emerson’s Nature  that I developed a passion for the environment. Without them, who knows if I would’ve become the advocate for ecotourism and wildlife conservation I am today. 

And when I finally started traveling, the work of travel writers such as Jon Krakauer , Bill Bryson and Paul Theroux greatly influenced the way I did it.

But the first classic quote I remember having a significant impact on me came in the form of a Robert Frost poem: “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by. And that has made all the difference.” This idea influenced many of my choices, setting me on the path to becoming a full-time professional writer in my twenties.

For me, these inspirational travel quotes aren’t just words: They are the distillation of a philosophy that continues to drive my life and work today. I hope they will prove equally influential for you…   –Bret Love; photos by Bret Love & Mary Gabbett

99 Inspirational Sustainability Quotes

Sustainability quotes are great because they remind us how important sustainability is and they help to inspire us to be more sustainable in our everyday lives. As the likes of Greta Thunburg and David Attenborough like to remind us- we simply cannot continue living in the way that we have been- sustainability isn’t a choice, it is quite literally a matter of life and death. We might not see the impacts where we live today or tomorrow and the impacts of our (unsustainable) actions will not present themselves to us all at the same time, but eventually all of humanity will suffer if we do not collectively change our behaviours.

There are many things that we can do to be more sustainable , but outlining all of those is not the purpose of this article! Instead, this article provides you with 99 inspirational sustainability quotes that can help to give you those subtle reminders to do the small things like switching off the lights or recycling your litter as well as inspiring you to do good for the planet. Are you ready for some inspirational sustainability quotes? Keep scrolling…

“A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people.” By Franklin D.

With an increased focus on sustainability, more and more people are looking for ways to travel more responsibly. “Green travel” is a broad term that can refer to anything from eco-friendly accommodation and carbon offsetting programs to sustainable tourism initiatives and sustainable transportation options.

There are many benefits of green travel, both for the environment and for the travelers themselves. Here are just a few of the reasons why you should consider “going green” on your next trip:

1. Green travel can help reduce your carbon footprint. 2. Green travel can help preserve natural resources and promote conservation. 3. Green travel can support local communities and economies. 4. Green travel can offer a more authentic and immersive travel experience. 5. Green travel can help you connect with nature in a deeper way.

From natural wonders to man-made landmarks, these destinations will have you excited to plan your next green vacation.

## 1. Norway Stringing together a series of protected fjords and picturesque valleys, Norway’s coastline is unsurprisingly named the world’s most beautiful by National Geographic. The country is home to landscapes that stretch as far as the eye can see, with peaks, valleys and waterfalls dotting the landscape.

## 2. Banff National Park, Canada Nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies, Banff National Park is a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts of all levels. With more than 2,564 square kilometers of unspoiled wilderness, the park offers visitors an opportunity to connect with nature in a way that is impossible in more developed areas.

## 3. The Galapagos Islands A place where time seems to stand still, the Galapagos Islands are home to an incredible array of endemic species that have been isolated from the rest of the world for centuries. This unique destination offers visitors a rare chance to get up close and personal with some of nature’s most fascinating creatures.

## 4. The Amazon rainforest As the world’s largest tropical forest, the Amazon is home to an astounding array of plant and animal life. Visitors can explore this green oasis by foot, boat or even helicopter, taking in the sights and sounds of this one-of-a-kind destination.

The Worst Green Travel Destinations green travel, sustainable travel, responsible travel, eco-travel, volunteer vacations

“The development of tourism has undoubtedly had an impact on the environment and sustainable development worldwide. The modern tourist is a global consumer, often from a wealthy background, travelling to multiple destinations. The growth in air travel has resulted in a massive increase in carbon emissions from aviation.” – WTO

“The average American annually produces about 20 metric tons of carbon dioxide – almost 10 times the world average. If everyone consumed at US levels, we would need several planets to support us.” – WWF

So where should the responsible traveler not go? Here are a few of the worst destinations for sustainable tourism:

Las Vegas, Nevada – nicknamed “Sin City,” Las Vegas is known for its casinos, Shows, and indulgent nightlife. It also happens to be one of the most water-stressed cities in the US due to its location in the Mojave Desert. 90% of its water comes from Lake Mead, which is currently experiencing a severe drought.

Orlando, Florida – home to Walt Disney World and Universal Studios Orlando, this city welcomes over 50 million visitors each year. It’s one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the US, and its rapid expansion is putting strain on already limited water resources. What’s more, much of Orlando sits on top of limestone – meaning it’s highly susceptible to sinkholes.

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Rio is a gorgeous city with world-famous beaches, but it’s also facing major environmental issues. Its bay is heavily polluted with sewage and trash, and the city struggles with air pollution due to heavy traffic and industry.

“The goal of sustainable tourism is to make better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit.” – Costas Christ

Sustainable tourism is the tourism that does not have negative impact on the environment or the societies where it took place. So, how can you make your travel more green?

Here are some tips: -Use refurbished items or second-hand items instead of buying new ones -Compost your food waste -Bring your own reusable water bottle and coffee mug -Choose public transportation or renting a bicycle over renting a car -Stay in environmentally friendly accommodations -Support local businesses

“The future of travel must be founded on a new awareness that we are visitors to this world and custodians of its beauty and resources.” -Zita Cobb

“Sustainability is the key to the future of travel and tourism. We must find ways to make our industry more sustainable so that it can continue to thrive and grow.” -Doris Salcedo

“True luxury is not about things, it is about experiences. It is about connection, creativity, curiosity and culture. It is time for the travel industry to wake up and offer something different.” -Anna Young

“The biggest adventure you can ever take is to live the life of your dreams.” -Oprah Winfrey

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” -Anonymous

With more and more people becoming eco-conscious, it’s no surprise that “green travel” is on the rise. According to a report by Greenbiz, the global green travel market is expected to reach $571 billion by 2022.

There are many ways to offset your carbon footprint while traveling, but it can be difficult to know where to start. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of 10 green travel tips that will Inspire your next journey.

1. Choose carbon-neutral transportation options whenever possible. This includes taking public transportation, biking, carpooling, or flying direct whenever possible. 2. Stay in accommodations that are environmentally friendly. This could mean anything from staying in a hostel or guesthouse that uses solar energy to booking an entire eco-friendly vacation package. 3. Pack light! This will help reduce your carbon footprint by using less fuel during transportation. Plus, it’ll make your travels a lot easier! 4. Bring along a reusable water bottle and refill it as often as possible to avoid buying single-use plastic bottles of water. 5. Bring along reusable shopping bags so you can avoid using plastic bags when shopping for souvenirs or groceries while on vacation. 6 Purchase carbon offsets for your flights before you travel. Carbon offsets are a way to financially support projects that help reduce greenhouse gas emissions (such as planting trees). 7 Avoid wasting food by only ordering what you know you’ll eat and cutting down on food waste while on vacation. 8 Support local economies by buying products made locally and eating at locally owned restaurants whenever possible. 9 Reduce your energy consumption while traveling by turning off the lights and AC when you leave your hotel room and unplugging electronics when they’re not in use. 10 Educate yourself about the environmental issues in the places you’re visiting and do your best to avoid harming natural resources or contributing to pollution while on vacation

With more and more people wanting to live a sustainable lifestyle, it’s no surprise that green travel is on the rise. However, there are still a lot of misconceptions about what green travel actually is. To help clear things up, we’ve debunk some of the most common green travel myths.

Green travel doesn’t have to be expensive – There are plenty of ways to travel without breaking the bank, and many of them are also eco-friendly. For example, you can Couchsurf or camp instead of staying in a hotel, cook your own meals instead of eating out, and take public transportation instead of renting a car.

Green travel doesn’t have to be difficult – A lot of people think that sustainable travel is complicated and time-consuming, but it doesn’t have to be. There are plenty of simple ways to reduce your environmental impact while on the road, such as packing light to save on fuel, offsetting your flights, and choosing eco-friendly activities.

You don’t have to sacrifice comfort for sustainability – Just because you want to travel sustainably doesn’t mean you have to rough it. There are many luxury eco-resorts and hotels around the world that offer their guests comfortable accommodations without compromising on their environmental standards.

You can still have an amazing trip even if it’s not perfect – Just because your trip isn’t 100% green doesn’t mean it isn’t worth taking. Sustainable travel is all about doing your best to reduce your impact, and every little bit counts. So don’t stress if you can’t perfectly align your trip with your values – just enjoy the journey!

When it comes to eco-friendly travel, there are a lot of ways to be green while you hit the road. Public transportation, renewable energy, and even something as simple as bringing your own reusable water bottle can make a big difference.

But where do you start? To help inspire your next sustainable trip, we’ve rounded up some of the best green travel quotes out there. So whether you’re looking to reduce your carbon footprint or just want to be more mindful while you travel, these quotes will get you thinking about how you can travel the world while staying green.

• Mark Twain Travel Quotes

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the Earth all one’s lifetime.
To do something, say something, see something, before anybody else — these are the things that confer a pleasure compared with which other pleasures are tame and commonplace, other ecstasies cheap and trivial. Lifetimes of ecstasy crowded into a single moment.

responsible travel quotes

It is the loveliest fleet of islands [ Hawaii ] that lies anchored in any ocean.
No alien land in all the world has any deep strong charm for me but that one [ Hawaii ], no other land could so longingly and so beseechingly haunt me, sleeping and waking, through half a lifetime, as that one has done. Other things leave me, but it abides; other things change, but it remains the same.   For me the balmy airs are always blowing, its summer seas flashing in the sun; the pulsing of its surfbeat is in my ear; I can see its garlanded crags, its leaping cascades, its plumy palms drowsing by the shore, its remote summits floating like islands above the cloud wrack; I can feel the spirit of its wildland solitudes, I can hear the splash of its brooks; in my nostrils still lives the breath of flowers that perished twenty years ago.

We leave something of ourselves behind when we leave a place. We stay there, even though we go away. And there are things in us that we can find again only by going back there. — Pascal Mercier
Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to. — Alan Keightley
Every dreamer knows that it is entirely possible to be homesick for a place you’ve never been to, perhaps more homesick than for familiar ground. — Judith Thurman

responsible travel quotes

Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey. — Pat Conroy
No man is brave that has never walked a hundred miles. If you want to know the truth of who you are, walk until not a person knows your name. Travel is the great leveler, the great teacher, bitter as medicine, crueler than mirror-glass. A long stretch of road will teach you more about yourself than a hundred years of quiet. — Patrick Rothfuss
It is always sad to leave a place to which one knows one will never return. Such are the melancolies du voyage: perhaps they are one of the most rewarding things about traveling. — Gustave Flaubert

responsible travel quotes

The wish to travel seems to me characteristically human: the desire to move, to satisfy your curiosity or ease your fears, to change the circumstances of your life, to be a stranger, to make a friend, to experience an exotic landscape, to risk the unknown. — Paul Theroux
Although I deeply love oceans, deserts and other wild landscapes, it is only mountains that beckon me with that sort of painful magnetic pull to walk deeper and deeper into their beauty. They keep me continuously wanting to know more, feel more, see more. — Victoria Erickson

• Travel With Friends Quotes

A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles. — Tim Cahill
You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place. — Miriam Adeney
We are all travelers in the wilderness of this world, and the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend. — Robert Louis Stevenson

responsible travel quotes

• Adventure Travel Quotes

Adventure is worthwhile in itself. — Amelia Earhart
If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it is lethal. — Paulo Coelho
Most of us abandoned the idea of a life full of adventure and travel sometime between puberty and our first job. Our dreams died under the dark weight of responsibility. Occasionally the old urge surfaces, and we label it with names that suggest psychological aberrations: the big chill, a midlife crisis. — Tim Cahill
Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter. — John Muir
Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. — Edward Abbey

responsible travel quotes

Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process, a new factor enters and takes over. A trip, a safari, an exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys. It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness. A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless.   We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us. Tour masters, schedules, reservations, brass-bound and inevitable, dash themselves to wreckage on the personality of the trip. Only when this is recognized can the blown-in-the glass bum relax and go along with it. Only then do the frustrations fall away. In this a journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it. — John Steinbeck
What is that feeling when you’re driving away from people and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? – it’s the too-huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies. — Jack Kerouac
A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for. — J.A. Shedd
Do not follow where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and make a trail. — Ralph Waldo Emerson

responsible travel quotes

It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any. — Hugh Laurie
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

responsible travel quotes

The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. — Christopher McCandless
Adventure is allowing the unexpected to happen to you. Exploration is experiencing what you have not experienced before. How can there be any adventure, any exploration, if you let somebody else – above all, a travel bureau – arrange everything before-hand? — Richard Aldington
Be careful because Cambodia is the most dangerous place you will ever visit. You will fall in love with it, and eventually it will break your heart. — Joel Brinkley

responsible travel quotes

• Solo Travel Quotes

To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the most pleasant sensations in the world. — Freya Stark
Do not go where the path may lead; go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. — Unknown
I can’t think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything. Suddenly you are five years old again. You can’t read anything, you have only the most rudimentary sense of how things work, you can’t reliably cross a street without endangering your life. Your whole existence becomes a series of interesting guesses. — Bill Bryson
The true fruit of travel is perhaps the feeling of being nearly everywhere at home. — Freya Stark

responsible travel quotes

When you’ve managed to stumble directly into the heart of the unknown – either through the misdirection of others, or better yet, through your own creative ineptitude – there is no one there to hold your hand or tell you what to do. In those bad lost moments, in the times when we are advised not to panic, we own the unknown, and the world belongs to us. The child within has full reign. Few of us are ever so free. — Tim Cahill
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. — Lin Yutang
He travels the fastest who travels alone. — Rudyard Kipling

responsible travel quotes

Travel can be one of the most rewarding forms of introspection. — Lawrence Durrell
When the traveler goes alone he gets acquainted with himself. — Liberty Hyde Bailey
The man who goes alone can start today; but he who travels with another must wait till that other is ready. — Henry David Thoreau

responsible travel quotes

I think one travels more usefully when they travel alone, because they reflect more. — Thomas Jefferson
Loving life is easy when you are abroad. Where no one knows you and you hold your life in your hands all alone, you are more master of yourself than at any other time. — Hannah Arendt
Personally I like going places where I don’t speak the language, don’t know anybody, don’t know my way around and don’t have any delusions that I’m in control. Disoriented, even frightened, I feel alive, awake in ways I never am at home. — Michael Mewshaw

responsible travel quotes

I can speak to my soul only when the two of us are off exploring deserts or cities or mountains or roads. — Paulo Coelho
Afoot and light-hearted I take to the open road. Healthy, free, the world before me. The long brown path before me leading me wherever I choose. — Walt Whitman

   

• Anthony Bourdain Travel Quotes

If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.
Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.
It’s an irritating reality that many places and events defy description. Angkor Wat and Machu Picchu , for instance, seem to demand silence, like a love affair you can never talk about.   For a while after, you fumble for words, trying vainly to assemble a private narrative, an explanation, a comfortable way to frame where you’ve been and what’s happened. In the end, you’re just happy you were there — with your eyes open — and lived to see it.

responsible travel quotes

Travel is about the gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown.
I’m a big believer in winging it. I’m a big believer that you’re never going to find the perfect city travel experience or the perfect meal without a constant willingness to experience a bad one. Letting the happy accident happen is what a lot of vacation itineraries miss, I think, and I’m always trying to push people to allow those things to happen rather than stick to some rigid itinerary.
Do we really want to travel in hermetically sealed popemobiles through the rural provinces of France, Mexico and the Far East, eating only in Hard Rock Cafes and McDonalds? … I know what I want. I want it all. I want to try everything once.

responsible travel quotes

It seems that the more places I see and experience, the bigger I realize the world to be. The more I become aware of, the more I realize how relatively little I know of it, how many places I have still to go, how much more there is to learn.   Maybe that’s enlightenment enough – to know that there is no final resting place of the mind, no moment of smug clarity. Perhaps wisdom, at least for me, means realizing how small I am, and unwise, and how far I have yet to go.
I think food, culture, people and landscape are all absolutely inseparable.
Food is everything we are. It’s an extension of nationalist feeling, ethnic feeling, your personal history, your province, your region, your tribe, your grandma. It’s inseparable from those from the get-go.
Southeast Asia has a real grip on me. From the very first time I went there, it was a fulfillment of my childhood fantasies of the way travel should be.

responsible travel quotes

I wanted adventures. I wanted to go up the Nung river to the heart of darkness in Cambodia . I wanted to ride out into a desert on camelback, sand and dunes in every direction, eat whole roasted lamb with my fingers. I wanted to kick snow off my boots in a Mafiya nightclub in Russia. I wanted to play with automatic weapons in Phnom Penh, recapture the past in a small oyster village in France, step into a seedy neon-lit pulqueria in rural Mexico. I wanted to run roadblocks in the middle of the night, blowing past angry militia with a handful of hurled Marlboro packs, experience fear, excitement, wonder.   I wanted kicks – the kind of melodramatic thrills and chills I’d yearned for since childhood, the kind of adventure I’d found as a little boy in the pages of my Tintin comic books. I wanted to see the world – and I wanted the world to be just like the movies.
At this point I think my body is like an old car. Another dent ain’t gonna make a whole lot of difference. At best it’s a reminder that you’re still alive and lucky as hell. Another tattoo, another thing you did, another place you’ve been.

responsible travel quotes

Without experimentation, a willingness to ask questions and try new things, we shall surely become static, repetitive, and moribund.
If I’m an advocate for anything, it’s to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else’s shoes or at least eat their food, it’s a plus for everybody. Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.
Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.

Solo Journey Quotes

Traveling alone is one of the scariest and most rewarding things you can do. Going where you want, when you want, without having to account for someone else… it sounds perfect, doesn’t it? Well, yes and no.

Taking a solo trip is liberating and reminds us how responsible and accountable we can be for our actions. We get to enjoy the journey, as well as the amazement of going somewhere we’ve never been before, with no distractions or drama.

Although traveling alone can be a little lonely, it’s also a great way to build confidence . It’s worth remembering that a solo trip might also introduce us to new friends, family we didn’t know we had, or even a significant other.

Suzy Strutner Quote "Solo travel not only pushes you out of your comfort zone, it also pushes you out of the zone of others' expectations"

My Favorite Classic & Obscure Travel Quotes

Last updated on June 24, 2023 by Shannon

For years, I’ve been collecting phrases on notecards, bookmarking quotes from my favorite books, noting song lyrics that resonate. This list of inspirational travel quotes includes some that you’d expect—iconic quotes I, and many others deeply love—but also a mix of unconventional and obscure travel quotes representing influences from the more than 15 years since I first shouldered a backpack to travel the world.

It’s not all about traveling, because life is twisty and long and ultimately travel is just one part of the human experience. I’ve been on the road for more than a decade now, and this unconventional life choice has made me see all the ways travel intersects with kindness, individuality, and much more. I have dedicated much of my life and travels to raising awareness about responsible tourism and service, and I also maintain a giant list of my favorite quotes about service and volunteering . And as a writer, I collect tidbits of thoughts, advice, and quotes about writing and being an artist . Whenever I need inspiration, I go to one of these lists and read through the succinct ideas, thoughts, and perspectives of others who have come before me.

“Every place is a goldmine. You have only to give yourself time, sit in a teahouse watching the passers-by, stand in a corner of the market, go for a haircut.

“The only unit of time that matters is heartbeats. Even if the world were totally silent, even in a dark room covered in five layers of foam, you’d be able to count your own heartbeats. When you get on a plane and travel you go 15 heartbeats per mile. That is, in the time it takes to travel a mile in flight your heart beats 15 times. On a train your heart might beat 250 times per mile. And we count this up and we make sense of it. We’re constantly switching accelerations; we’re jumping between time frames. That’s what we’re asking people to do every time we make something new, some new tool or product. We’re asking them to reset their understanding of time. To accept that the sequence we’re asking them to follow is the right way to do a thing. It’s like the farmer with the clock.” — Paul Ford

“They thought that it would be a disgrace to go forth as a group. Each entered the forest at a point that he himself had chosen, where it was darkest and there was no path. If there is a path it is someone else’s path and you are not on the adventure.” — Joseph Campbell / The Hero’s Journey

“ There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. ”    — Nelson Mandela

“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice that produces beggars needs restructuring.”    — Martin Luther King, Jr

“Among men, it seems, historically at any rate, that processes of co-ordination and disintegration follow each other with great regularity, and the index of the co-ordination is the measure of the disintegration which follows. There is no mob like a group of well-drilled soldiers when they have thrown off their discipline. And there is no lostness like that which comes to a man when a perfect and certain pattern has dissolved about him. There is no hater like one who has greatly loved.”    — John Steinbeck

“Travel is like love, 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.”    — Pico Iyer

“The day the child realizes that all adults are imperfect, he becomes an adolescent; the day he forgives them, he becomes an adult; the day he forgives himself, he becomes wise.”    — Alden Nowlan

“Mankind’s true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply buried from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it.”    — Milan Kundera

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”   — Elie Wiesel

“Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.”   — Martin Luther King, Jr

“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I do know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve.”   — Albert Schweitzer

“All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.”   — Samuel Johnson

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.”    — Bill Bryson

“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”   — Maya Angelou

“Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.”    — Freya Stark

“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

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”   — Steve Jobs

“A man of ordinary talent will always be ordinary, whether he travels or not; but a man of superior talent will go to pieces if he remains forever in the same place…”   — Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

“You don’t choose the day you enter the world and you don’t chose the day you leave. It’s what you do in between that makes all the difference.”   — Anita Septimus

“I’m happy to be here, but still a little sad to be here too. Sometimes it’s better to travel than to arrive.”    — Robert Pirsig

“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”   — Neil Armstrong

“People do not decide to become extraordinary. They decide to accomplish extraordinary things.”    — Edmund Hillary

Travel quote from Gustave Flaubert

“If you are a dreamer, come in If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer . . . If you’re a pretender, come sit by the fire For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!”

— Shel Silverstein

Those things make happiness.”    — From “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn”

This quote metaphorically compares the world to a book, implying that there is so much to see, learn, and experience. Each place we visit is like turning a new page in the book, offering us a fresh perspective, new characters, unexpected twists and turns, and stories waiting to be discovered.

The second part of the quote, “those who do not travel read only one page,” suggests that if we don’t travel, we limit ourselves to the knowledge, experiences, and perspectives of just our immediate surroundings. We remain on a single page of the book, and consequently, our understanding of the world remains limited and narrow.

This quote can have a powerful, positive influence on our lives. It encourages us to step out of our comfort zones and explore the world, thereby broadening our horizons and enriching our understanding of the world. Travel can be transformative, promoting personal growth by building self-confidence, fostering tolerance, enhancing adaptability, and encouraging self-discovery. This quote acts as a reminder of the educational and transformative power of travel, nudging us towards embracing new experiences and learning from them.

This quote by Ibn Battuta, a famous Moroccan explorer, beautifully captures the profound impact of travel. The initial part, “Traveling – it leaves you speechless,” reflects the awe-inspiring moments we often experience when we encounter new places, cultures, and experiences. Travel can be overwhelming in the most positive way, presenting us with sights, sounds, and experiences that leave us momentarily without words, simply because they’re beyond anything we’ve known before.

The second part, “then turns you into a storyteller,” speaks to the transformative power of these experiences. Once we’ve processed the wonders we’ve seen and the experiences we’ve had, we naturally want to share them. We tell stories of our adventures, recounting the things we’ve seen, the people we’ve met, the lessons we’ve learned, and the experiences we’ve had. In this way, travel enriches not only our own lives but also those of the people we share our stories with.

This quote can inspire us to seek out those speechless moments that will later turn into our personal narratives. It encourages us to welcome new experiences, understanding that they broaden our perspective and deepen our connection with the world. Ultimately, it reminds us that travel isn’t just about seeing new places, but about the stories we bring back, the changes within us, and the richer understanding we gain of our world and our place within it.

This quote from Prophet Muhammad promotes travel as a path to both physical well-being and spiritual or mental sustenance. While the quote is succinct, its implications are profound and multi-faceted.

The first part of the quote suggests that travel can contribute to physical health. This may refer to the active nature of traveling, which often involves walking, hiking, or other physical activities that promote fitness. It could also refer to the mental health benefits of travel, such as reduced stress and increased happiness, which can in turn have positive effects on physical health.

The second part of the quote suggests that travel allows us to seek sustenance. In a literal sense, this might mean the pursuit of resources or opportunities that can provide for our physical needs. In a more figurative sense, ‘sustenance’ could refer to the intellectual, emotional, and spiritual nourishment we gain from new experiences, perspectives, and encounters during our travels. This could include personal growth, expanded worldviews, and increased understanding and appreciation of different cultures.

This quote can influence us positively by encouraging us to view travel not just as a leisure activity, but as a means of promoting our physical well-being and nourishing our minds and spirits. It invites us to see travel as an opportunity for growth, discovery, and rejuvenation, reminding us of the many benefits that travel can offer.

This profound quote from J.R.R. Tolkien’s poem “The Riddle of Strider” from “The Lord of the Rings” encapsulates a powerful idea about travel and life in general. The phrase suggests that wandering or traveling without a fixed destination doesn’t necessarily mean one is lost. It affirms the value of exploration, curiosity, and the willingness to venture into the unknown.

It’s common to equate wandering with being lost, but Tolkien reframes this notion, highlighting that many people choose to wander not because they’re lost, but because they’re explorers at heart. They seek to discover, learn, grow, and experience life outside of their regular, predictable patterns. They may not have a specific destination in mind, but their wandering is purposeful and meaningful.

This quote can be highly influential in a positive way, as it encourages an open-minded and adventurous approach to life. It reassures us that it’s okay not to have everything figured out and that there is value and joy to be found in the journey itself. It teaches us that life isn’t necessarily about following a fixed path but about embracing the opportunities for discovery and growth that come with wandering. This can inspire individuals to explore, to take risks, and to find their own unique paths in life.

This quote encapsulates the idea that travel, unlike material possessions, enriches us in intangible but invaluable ways. The phrase suggests that while travel requires financial expenditure, the returns it offers are priceless and enduring.

When you buy a physical object, its value often depreciates over time. However, when you invest in travel, you’re buying experiences and memories that enrich your life in various ways. You gain new perspectives, acquire knowledge, discover cultures, meet new people, and encounter experiences that stimulate personal growth. These are forms of ‘wealth’ that do not diminish over time but instead add depth and richness to your life.

Furthermore, travel often challenges us, pushing us out of our comfort zones and teaching us resilience, adaptability, and problem-solving skills. These experiences can lead to increased self-confidence and a better understanding of oneself.

This quote can inspire us in a positive way by reminding us that spending on experiences, rather than things, can lead to personal enrichment. It encourages us to invest in experiences that foster learning, growth, and self-discovery, reinforcing the idea that the value of travel goes far beyond the cost of a plane ticket.

This quote by T.S. Eliot, a renowned poet, playfully challenges the common notion that the destination is the ultimate goal. Instead, Eliot emphasizes the importance and value of the journey itself.

In the context of travel, the ‘journey’ refers to the entire process of traveling – the planning, the anticipation, the travel itself, and the experiences along the way. The ‘arrival’ is the destination – the place you intended to reach. The quote suggests that the experiences, learning, growth, and memories created during the journey often hold more value and meaning than simply reaching the destination.

The journey often involves challenges and unexpected situations that require us to adapt and grow. It’s during the journey that we learn new things, meet different people, experience diverse cultures, and create memories that last a lifetime.

This quote can influence us in a positive way by encouraging us to focus on the process rather than the outcome, not only in travel but also in other aspects of life. It reminds us to be present, to appreciate each moment, and to learn from the journey rather than rushing towards the destination. It urges us to embrace the journey with all its ups and downs, knowing that these experiences shape us and enrich our lives.

This quote by Miriam Beard touches on the transformative power of travel. It suggests that traveling is not just about physically visiting different places or seeing famous landmarks. While these are aspects of travel, they don’t capture the entirety of what it means to travel.

The quote proposes that travel brings about a deep, enduring change in our understanding of life and our way of living. When we travel, we encounter different cultures, customs, and perspectives. We learn about different ways of life, which can lead us to question our assumptions and expand our understanding. Travel exposes us to diversity and reminds us that there’s no single ‘correct’ way to live.

Moreover, travel often pushes us out of our comfort zones, making us adapt to new situations, solve problems, and build resilience. These experiences can lead to personal growth and a deeper understanding of ourselves.

This quote can inspire us in a positive way by highlighting the profound impact travel can have on our lives. It encourages us to embrace travel as a tool for personal growth and learning, urging us to seek experiences that challenge us and broaden our perspective. It emphasizes that the true value of travel lies in its ability to transform our understanding of life and our place in the world.

This quote by Helen Keller, a remarkable woman who overcame the dual challenges of being deaf and blind, encapsulates her view of life as a journey filled with potential adventures. The quote conveys the idea that life, in its fullest sense, is about stepping out of your comfort zone, taking risks, and embracing new experiences – in essence, living adventurously.

In the context of travel, a ‘daring adventure’ could mean exploring unknown territories, experiencing unfamiliar cultures, or simply trying something new and different. However, this quote applies to life in a broader sense as well. It could refer to daring to dream big, facing personal fears, pursuing passions, or tackling challenges head-on.

The alternative Keller offers – that life is ‘nothing at all’ without such adventures – underscores her belief in the value of active engagement, courage, and risk-taking in leading a fulfilling life. Living passively, avoiding risks, and staying within one’s comfort zone, by contrast, reduces life to a bland, unfulfilling existence.

This quote can influence us positively by inspiring courage and a spirit of adventure. It serves as a reminder that embracing challenges, trying new things, and taking risks – whether in travel or in other areas of life – can lead to personal growth, memorable experiences, and a more vibrant, fulfilling life.

Amelia Earhart, known for her courageous and groundbreaking achievements in aviation, espoused the idea that the true value of an adventure doesn’t necessarily lie in the destination or the end result, but in the adventure itself.

Adventure, in the context of this quote, can refer to any endeavor or experience that takes us out of our comfort zones and exposes us to new things. This could be a physical journey, such as travelling to a new place, or it could be a metaphorical journey, such as taking on a challenging project or pursuing a new interest.

The phrase “worthwhile in itself” suggests that the inherent value of an adventure lies in the journey, the learning, the growth, and the experiences along the way. It’s about the thrill of discovery, the joy of overcoming challenges, and the personal growth that comes from stepping into the unknown.

This quote can influence us positively by encouraging us to seek out and embrace adventures, regardless of their outcomes. It reminds us to appreciate the journey, with all its challenges and rewards, rather than focusing solely on the destination or the end result. It inspires us to embrace uncertainty and to see the inherent value in the adventures we undertake. This mindset can make our lives more exciting, enriching, and fulfilling.

This quote from the Dalai Lama encourages the practice of exploration and discovery as a regular, intentional part of our lives. The quote’s call to go someplace new each year isn’t just about physical travel, though that is certainly one interpretation. It’s a broader encouragement to continually expand our horizons, seek out new experiences, and challenge ourselves to grow and learn.

The phrase “someplace you’ve never been before” can refer to a physical location, a new culture or community, a different mindset, or even a novel experience or skill. By seeking out these new experiences, we expose ourselves to different perspectives and ideas, fostering a greater understanding of the world around us and promoting personal growth.

The impact of this quote can be profound and positive. It encourages us to step out of our comfort zones, to embrace change and novelty, and to continually seek personal growth and learning.

This quote by philosopher and statesman Francis Bacon beautifully encapsulates the transformative power of travel across different stages of life. It suggests that travel serves different but equally important purposes depending on our age and life experience.

For younger people, travel is often a formative experience that contributes significantly to their education. It isn’t just about academic learning, but about life lessons and practical knowledge that can’t be taught in a classroom. Travel exposes young people to diverse cultures, ways of life, and perspectives, fostering an open mind and a broader worldview. It teaches them adaptability, problem-solving, and interpersonal skills, equipping them for the future.

For older people, travel serves as a rich source of experience and enjoyment. It offers opportunities for reflection and self-discovery, providing new perspectives even on familiar things. Travel for the “elder” is less about acquiring knowledge and more about enjoying experiences, exploring new places, and creating memories.

This quote by travel writer Paul Theroux makes a distinction between tourists and travelers, playing on the commonly held stereotypes of the two. The difference, according to Theroux, lies in their awareness and engagement with their surroundings.

When Theroux suggests that “tourists don’t know where they’ve been,” he might be implying that tourists often visit places superficially. They might check off landmarks and attractions without fully immersing themselves in the culture, history, or local life of the places they visit. This could result in a lack of deeper understanding or meaningful connection with the places they’ve been.

On the other hand, when he says “Travelers don’t know where they’re going,” he might be suggesting that travelers embark on their journeys with an open mind and a spirit of spontaneity. They are open to the unexpected, willing to deviate from their planned itineraries, and flexible in their plans. This approach allows travelers to discover and experience things that might be missed with a more structured, goal-oriented mindset.

This quote can positively influence us by inspiring a more mindful and immersive approach to travel. It encourages us to be fully present and engaged in our travels, to embrace spontaneity, and to seek out authentic, meaningful experiences. It reminds us that travel isn’t just about ticking off a list of attractions, but about immersing ourselves in new environments and cultures, being open to unexpected discoveries, and growing from our experiences.

This quote by Lucy R. Lippard, an internationally known writer, activist, and critic, encourages us to cultivate curiosity and mindfulness not just when we’re traveling, but in our everyday lives and surroundings as well.

The first part of the quote suggests that many people only truly ‘look around’ and become fully aware of their surroundings when they’re traveling. This might involve noticing the details of a place, its people, its culture, and its history, and being curious and open to new experiences and learning.

The second part of the quote suggests that if we brought the same level of attention and curiosity to our own neighborhoods, we could learn a great deal. Our local surroundings are full of stories, cultures, people, and experiences to discover. By becoming tourists in our own towns or cities, we can expand our understanding and appreciation of our local community and environment.

This quote can influence us positively by inspiring us to be more mindful, curious, and engaged in our daily lives. It challenges us to see the familiar with fresh eyes and to discover the extraordinary in the ordinary. It reminds us that every place, including our own neighborhoods, has something to teach us if we’re willing to look and learn.

This quote encapsulates the exhilarating blend of uncertainty and excitement that often accompanies travel. The quote suggests that a key part of the allure of travel lies in stepping into the unknown, in willingly embracing uncertainty, and in being open to whatever experiences and adventures might come our way.

The phrase “gorgeous feeling of teetering in the unknown” beautifully captures the paradox of travel. On one hand, there’s the unease of being in a new, unfamiliar place, where the language, customs, and environment might be different from what we’re used to. On the other hand, there’s the thrill of discovery, the joy of new experiences, and the potential for personal growth and learning.

Travel, according to this quote, is not about predictability or comfort. Instead, it’s about stepping out of our comfort zones, challenging ourselves, and embracing the thrill of discovery. It’s about relishing the chance to explore, to learn, and to grow, even (or perhaps especially) when we’re not quite sure what lies ahead.

This quote can influence us in a positive way by encouraging us to embrace uncertainty, not just in travel, but in life more generally. It reminds us that stepping into the unknown can be an opportunity for growth and discovery, rather than something to fear. It encourages us to see the beauty in uncertainty and to cherish the thrill of stepping into the unknown.

This profound quote by Anna Quindlen, an American author, journalist, and opinion columnist, underscores the potential for change and personal evolution at any point in life. It suggests that our past does not define us entirely and that we always have the capacity to embark on new journeys and experiences, which in this context could mean traveling.

The “life you have led” refers to your past experiences, habits, roles, and identities. While these aspects undoubtedly shape who you are, Quindlen’s quote emphasizes that they don’t need to limit your future. You have the power to create new experiences, pursue new interests, and evolve in different ways.

In the context of travel, this quote might inspire someone to venture out and explore new places, cultures, and perspectives, even if they’ve lived a relatively stationary or routine life up until now.

When we travel, we come face to face with the enormity of the world and the diversity of people, cultures, landscapes, and experiences it contains. It puts into perspective just how small a part we play in the grand scheme of things.

The term “modest” in this context refers to the sense of humility or perspective that comes from recognizing our relative insignificance in the broader world. This isn’t intended to diminish our value or worth, but rather to foster a sense of humility and respect for the vastness and diversity of the world.

Seeing “what a tiny place you occupy in the world” is a reminder of our interconnectedness with others and with the world at large. It encourages us to respect and appreciate other cultures and perspectives and to recognize that our way of life is just one among many.

Travel exposes us to different cultures, landscapes, and ways of life, providing an invaluable education that extends beyond academic knowledge. It teaches us adaptability, problem-solving, and empathy, and it helps us to understand our place in the world.

Furthermore, travel often allows for reflection and self-discovery, as we step away from our daily routines and familiar surroundings. This time away can help us to gain a clearer understanding of our values, passions, and goals, thus contributing to our personal development.

The quote implies that popular opinions or stereotypes about a place should not deter us from exploring it for ourselves. It encourages us to approach new destinations with an open mind, ready to discover their unique charm and beauty, regardless of any negative narratives we may have encountered.

Thompson’s words remind us of the importance of personal experience and firsthand exploration. They encourage us to challenge our own biases and judgments, and to form our own opinions based on our individual encounters and interactions with a place and its people.

This quote has a transformative influence by reminding us that we should not let preconceived notions limit our sense of adventure and exploration. It encourages us to step outside our comfort zones and embrace the unknown, as it is in these moments that we often find unexpected joy, beauty, and cultural richness.

In this succinct quote by Simon Raven, the brevity of life and the vastness of the world are juxtaposed. It serves as a reminder of the limited time we have and the endless possibilities that exist beyond our immediate surroundings.

The quote implies that life is fleeting, urging us to seize the opportunities that come our way and make the most of our time on this planet. It highlights the importance of embracing the world and all it has to offer, rather than confining ourselves to a narrow perspective.

Raven’s words encourage us to break free from the limitations of our comfort zones and explore the vastness of the world. They inspire us to embrace new experiences, cultures, and landscapes, recognizing that there is so much more to discover beyond our familiar routines.

This quote has an invigorating influence by prompting us to embrace a sense of adventure, curiosity, and openness. It encourages us to step outside the boundaries of our daily lives and engage with the richness and diversity that the world has to offer.

In this thought-provoking quote by Paul Theroux, the perception of travel as glamorous is challenged. It suggests that the romanticized notion of travel often fades when confronted with the realities and challenges that come along the way.

The quote implies that the true essence of travel may not always align with the idealized images we have in our minds. It reminds us that the experience of travel can be far from glamorous, involving discomfort, uncertainty, and unexpected obstacles that may not be apparent in retrospect.

Theroux’s words invite us to reflect on our own travel experiences and acknowledge that the beauty and allure of travel are often found in the memories and stories we create after the fact. They remind us that it is through the lens of nostalgia that we often view our travels as glamorous and transformative.

This quote has a reflective influence by prompting us to reevaluate our perceptions of travel and challenge any romanticized notions we may hold. It encourages us to embrace the raw and authentic aspects of our travel experiences, even if they are not always glamorous.

In this intriguing quote by Thomas Fuller, the impact of travel on individuals is explored. It suggests that while travel has the potential to enhance the wisdom and knowledge of a wise person, it can have a negative effect on a fool, potentially amplifying their foolishness.

The quote implies that the way we approach travel and engage with the world determines its impact on us. For those who possess wisdom, an open mind, and a thirst for learning, travel can be a transformative experience that expands their understanding, broadens their perspectives, and deepens their wisdom.

Conversely, for those lacking wisdom, travel may expose their ignorance and reinforce their foolish behaviors. It may amplify their negative traits and limit their ability to appreciate and understand the world around them.

Fuller’s words highlight the importance of personal growth and self-awareness in the context of travel. They encourage us to approach travel with a sense of curiosity, humility, and a willingness to learn. They also serve as a cautionary reminder to continually seek personal growth and self-improvement, regardless of our circumstances.

In this insightful quote by Hilaire Belloc, the distinction between wandering and traveling is explored. It suggests that while wandering may serve as a form of temporary distraction, travel holds the potential for deeper fulfillment and personal growth.

The quote implies that wandering is characterized by aimlessness and a desire to escape the routines and responsibilities of everyday life. It provides a temporary diversion from our thoughts and concerns, offering a respite from the familiar.

On the other hand, travel is portrayed as a purposeful and intentional journey. It goes beyond mere distraction, offering opportunities for discovery, cultural immersion, and self-realization. It provides a sense of fulfillment that comes from exploring new places, engaging with different cultures, and gaining a deeper understanding of the world and ourselves.

Belloc’s words remind us that travel is not just about going from one place to another, but about the personal transformation that occurs along the way. It encourages us to seek meaningful experiences, connect with the essence of a place, and embrace the challenges and rewards that come with travel.

This quote has a reflective influence by inviting us to consider the motivations behind our journeys. It encourages us to move beyond wandering aimlessly and instead embark on purposeful travel that enriches our lives and contributes to our personal growth.

In this insightful quote by George A. Moore, the idea of searching for fulfillment through travel is juxtaposed with the realization that what we truly need may already be found within the comforts of home. It suggests that while travel can broaden our horizons and offer new experiences, our ultimate fulfillment often lies in the familiar and the connections we have in our home environment.

The quote implies that the act of traveling can be driven by a sense of restlessness, a desire for adventure, or the belief that what we seek is elsewhere. However, upon returning home, we may discover that the sense of belonging, purpose, and fulfillment we long for can be found within the familiar settings and relationships we have cultivated.

Moore’s words highlight the importance of appreciating and valuing what we have in our immediate surroundings. They remind us that true fulfillment is not solely dependent on external experiences or distant places, but on our ability to nurture meaningful connections and find contentment in the present moment.

This quote has a reflective influence by inviting us to reflect on the motivations behind our desire to travel and the significance of our home environment. It encourages us to seek a balance between exploration and rootedness, recognizing the value of both external adventures and the comforts of home.

In this insightful quote by Sandra Lake, the correlation between age, travel, wisdom, and understanding is highlighted. It suggests that as we grow older, we gain wisdom through the accumulation of life experiences. Similarly, through travel, we gain a deeper understanding of the world and its diverse cultures, people, and perspectives.

The quote implies that age and wisdom are not solely derived from the passing of time but also from the experiences and knowledge we acquire along the way. Likewise, travel is portrayed as a transformative experience that broadens our horizons, challenges our preconceptions, and fosters empathy and understanding.

Lake’s words invite us to embrace both the inherent wisdom that comes with age and the expansive understanding that comes through travel. They encourage us to continue seeking new experiences, exploring unfamiliar territories, and engaging with the world around us to cultivate a deeper appreciation for its complexity and diversity.

This quote has an empowering influence by reminding us that there is always more to learn and understand, regardless of our age. It encourages us to embrace a lifelong journey of self-discovery, personal growth, and cultural exploration through travel.

In this profound quote by T. S. Eliot, the emphasis is placed on the significance of the journey itself rather than the final destination. It suggests that the process of undertaking a journey holds greater value than reaching a specific endpoint. It is the experiences, transformations, and lessons learned along the way that truly matter.

The quote implies that our focus should not solely be fixated on the end result or the achievement of a goal. Instead, we should embrace the entire journey—the challenges, the discoveries, the growth, and the moments of reflection. It is through this journey that we find meaning, purpose, and a deeper understanding of ourselves and the world around us.

Eliot’s words encourage us to shift our perspective and appreciate the beauty and richness of the journey itself. They remind us to be present, to savor each moment, and to fully immerse ourselves in the experiences that shape us.

This quote has a transformative influence by inviting us to embrace the process of personal growth, self-discovery, and exploration. It encourages us to let go of the fixation on outcomes and instead focus on the lessons, connections, and insights gained through our journeys.

In this insightful quote by Mark Hertsgaard, the parallel between travel and knowledge is drawn. It suggests that similar to acquiring knowledge, the more we explore and travel, the more we become aware of the vastness and depth of the world that remains unknown to us.

The quote implies that travel is a continuous journey of discovery and learning. As we venture into new places, encounter different cultures, and witness diverse perspectives, we realize the boundless nature of the world and our limited understanding of it. Each new experience only reveals how much more there is to explore and comprehend.

Hertsgaard’s words invite us to embrace the humility that comes with travel. They remind us that no matter how much we have seen or know, there will always be more to discover and learn. Travel becomes a catalyst for curiosity, an invitation to expand our horizons, and an acknowledgment that true wisdom comes from acknowledging the vastness of the world.

This quote has an enlightening influence by encouraging us to approach travel with an open mind and a hunger for knowledge. It reminds us that the purpose of travel extends beyond ticking off destinations on a list—it is about the deepening of our understanding, the broadening of our perspectives, and the continuous pursuit of knowledge.

In this profound quote by Hypatia, the notion of life as an ongoing process of growth and understanding is highlighted. It suggests that as we embark on our personal journeys, both physical and metaphorical, we gain a deeper comprehension of the truths that shape our existence.

The quote implies that life is not a static state, but rather a continuous unfolding. Through travel, both in the literal sense of exploring new places and in the figurative sense of seeking knowledge and experiences, we expand our horizons and open ourselves up to a broader understanding of the world and our place within it.

Hypatia’s words invite us to embrace the transformative power of travel. They remind us that each step we take, each new encounter we have, and each experience we undergo contributes to our personal growth and allows us to grasp deeper truths about ourselves and the world around us.

This quote has an empowering influence by encouraging us to approach life with a sense of curiosity, openness, and a hunger for truth. It reminds us that the more we venture out into the world, physically or intellectually, the more insights and wisdom we can acquire.

In this insightful quote by Rosalia de Castro, the embrace of the unknown and the journey itself is celebrated. It suggests that the uncertainty of not knowing where one’s path will lead becomes the very motivation to embark on the journey and discover what lies ahead.

The quote implies that having a clear destination or a fixed outcome is not always necessary. It is the allure of the unknown and the possibilities that lie beyond the horizon that ignite the passion for exploration and travel. The willingness to step into the unknown, with all its uncertainties, is what fuels inspiration and sparks personal growth.

De Castro’s words invite us to embrace the beauty of the journey, even when the destination remains uncertain. They remind us that it is in the act of traveling our path that we discover our true selves, encounter unexpected wonders, and find meaning in the experiences along the way.

This quote has a liberating influence by encouraging us to let go of the need for certainty and control. It inspires us to trust the journey itself and have faith that our path will unfold as we navigate through life. It reminds us that the process of exploration and self-discovery is often more important than the destination we aim for.

In this powerful quote by Elizabeth Gilbert, the inherent value and significance of travel are emphasized. It suggests that the benefits and rewards of exploring the world and experiencing new cultures are so profound that they outweigh any challenges, expenses, or sacrifices that may come with it.

The quote implies that the transformative power of travel, the expansion of horizons, and the enrichment of one’s perspective are invaluable. It highlights the idea that the personal growth, cultural understanding, and profound experiences gained through travel far surpass any material or temporal investments required.

Gilbert’s words invite us to embrace the idea that travel is not merely a luxury or a leisure activity but an essential part of a fulfilling life. They remind us that the insights, connections, and memories we gather through our journeys are priceless and contribute to our overall well-being and understanding of the world.

This quote has a liberating influence by encouraging us to prioritize and invest in travel experiences. It challenges us to consider the value of immersing ourselves in different cultures, exploring unfamiliar territories, and embracing the unknown. It reminds us that the personal growth and enrichment that come from travel are worth the sacrifices and commitments we make.

In this thought-provoking quote by Randy Komisar, the danger of deferring our dreams and desires in favor of future promises is highlighted. It suggests that postponing what truly brings us joy and fulfillment in the hope of acquiring freedom later carries a significant risk — the risk of missing out on living a life aligned with our passions and aspirations.

The quote implies that true freedom lies in pursuing our passions and living in alignment with our authentic desires rather than relying on future circumstances or financial security. It challenges the notion that we should sacrifice our present happiness for the promise of a more liberated future.

Komisar’s words invite us to question the traditional narratives of success and challenge the assumption that postponing our dreams is a wise or fulfilling choice. They remind us that life is precious and that our time is limited, urging us to prioritize doing what we truly want and value rather than deferring our happiness to an uncertain future.

This quote has an empowering influence by encouraging us to live in the present and take calculated risks to pursue our dreams. It reminds us that the pursuit of our passions and desires brings a sense of fulfillment and purpose that cannot be bought or guaranteed by external circumstances.

For those who yearn for more than just a change of scenery, for those who seek to dive into the unknown and revel in the thrill of discovery, our collection of quotes about travel and adventure are just for you. And lastly, for those who view travel not just as a physical journey, but an inward and personal one, our travel journey quotes might resonate deeply with you.

Each quote is a testament to the transformative power of travel, serving as a reminder that the journey is often just as important, if not more so, than the destination. So, sit back, soak in the wisdom, and let these travel quotes inspire your next adventure!

I hope these quotes inspire you to pack your bags and explore the world, or at the very least, spark your wanderlust. Safe travels!

John Gunter, President & CEO of Frontiers North Adventures, spoke today at the  Skift Global Forum .

Working with his team of 50+ full-time and seasonal staff, Gunter is responsible for the company’s growth, expense management, corporate culture and maintaining the company’s commitment to corporate social responsibility.

Gunter guides Frontiers Norths’ relationship with Polar Bears International, a non-profit polar bear-habitat and species conservation group, an organization with which he also holds an advisory position.

Gunter’s talk on “The Travel Industry’s Footprint” revolved around being a responsible traveler. Here are three things we learned:

  • “Keep in mind stakeholders are included in your community. Define your brand position and bake corporate social responsibility into your brand DNA.”
  • “It doesn’t matter if you operate a small company, or if you work for a larger company, we all need to empower our teams and staff to make responsible decisions.”
  • “It’s our responsibility to inspire our guests, not to scare or manipulate them into visiting these places.”

Quotes that prove solo travel makes you stronger

Solo travel often starts with taking a leap of faith. If it’s your first solo trip, you must actively work on believing in yourself and trusting your instincts.

Sometimes in travel (and in life), the only certainty is uncertainty. Things won’t always be easy, things wont’ always go to plan. Barriers and hurdles are almost guaranteed – but these experiences are likely to make you stronger and more resilient.

These travel alone quotes are all about testing your limits.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

– Neale Donald Walsch

“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you; it should change you.

– Anthony Bourdain

“Life is a journey with big rocks to climb, little ones to trip over, and milestones to mark where we have been.”

– David Cuschieri

Quotations that prove solo travel changes your perspective

I’ve never met anyone who decided to solo travel and came back the same person. Travel changes you – that’s undeniable – and often travel alone can shape you in ways you never could have anticipated.

One of the greatest lessons travel can teach you is to be humble. Travel helps you find your place in the world. A solo trip can give you the tools you need to tackle all of life’s adventures – and misadventures, too.

These solo travel quotes refer to self-discovery, breaking through your comfort zone, and seeing travel as a motif for the journey of life.

“A person susceptible to ‘Wanderlust’ is not so much addicted to movement as committed to transformation.”

“Adventure can be an end in itself. Self-discovery is the secret ingredient.”

– Grace Lichtenstein

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world.”

Tips for being a responsible, respectful traveler

Consider the culture, people, and the earth when you travel.

by Allie Volpe

An illustration shows a person with a camera standing in an Asian-style garden surrounded by greenery and seen through a red archway.

When travel reporter Victoria Walker first embarked on international travels at age 22, she was of the “very American view,” she says, that the world was her oyster. She’d jump at cheap flight deals, often never giving a second thought about why she even wanted to visit certain destinations. She was guilty of visiting all the same Instagram-friendly destinations and posting the same photo as thousands of others before her. In her post-pandemic travels, Walker says she’s considerably more thoughtful with her planning: She researches hotels’ sustainability policies, asks other travelers about their experiences in destinations, finds hole-in-the-wall dining options.

“I want to go to a place and feel like I got something from being there,” Walker says, “and that they got something from me being there or I didn’t take anything away from that destination.”

You don’t need to cross international borders to be mindful of your impact on a community and the environment. For over two decades , the responsible travel movement has put forth the message that by prioritizing and protecting local people, culture, and natural ecosystems, tourists can have more authentic experiences, meaning a trip that immerses visitors in the local culture. As recently as 2017, American travelers were least interested in exploring a destination’s culture and history and were most likely to book a cruise for their next vacation, according to an Expedia survey. Another Expedia survey from 2017 found that US travelers across age demographics were more likely to look for the best deals when it came to travel and valued outdoor trips. 

Over the last few years, traveler sentiments have more closely aligned with the tenets of responsible travel: Since pandemic travel restrictions were lifted in 2021, tourists have placed a greater emphasis on sustainability and respect for local communities in their adventures. These ideals apply whether you’re visiting the next town over or a foreign country, whether you’re traveling for leisure or for business. 

“Being a responsible traveler,” says Wesley Espinosa , the interim executive director at the nonprofit Center For Responsible Travel , “is going to a place with the mindset that you are going to treat it as your home and leave it better than you found it.”

Travel isn’t an inherently good or bad experience, Espinosa stresses — “travel just is,” he says, “it exists.” That doesn’t mean remaining ignorant of your impact on a destination. After all, while this may be your vacation, the city, town, or village you’re visiting is someone’s home and you should treat it as such. From putting in the legwork before you depart to ensuring you’re choosing a hotel or travel guide that supports the local economy , here’s what to keep in mind if you want to travel responsibly. 

Plan your trip in a way that supports local people, customs, and nature

Any trip, near or far, requires some level of preparation and research: Where will you go? How will you get there? What will you do once you’ve arrived? Where will you stay on overnight trips? While making these decisions, consider the nature of your trip. If you’re planning a bachelor or bachelorette party and expect many late nights, you’ll want to identify a locale — and a neighborhood within that city — that supports these activities. “Mostly, the centers of big cities are set up for tourists and tourism and it’s hard to go wrong there,” says Justin Francis, the co-founder and chief executive of the tour operator Responsible Travel . “But if you’re traveling to a neighborhood, which is where local life really happens, just be a bit more mindful that some bars are local bars and they’re not going to take kindly to you going crazy.”

Do some research to determine if your proposed vacation destination is amenable to tourists. For instance, the city of Amsterdam recently released public service announcements deterring young British men from visiting the city, due to complaints from locals about “ nuisance tourists .” The US State Department also keeps a list of countries where tourists are not advised to travel , such as Russia and Afghanistan. Maintain a basic understanding of environmental, social, and political news in your planned destination to ensure not only that it’s safe for you, but also that you won’t exacerbate any ongoing problems. “Understand the religion , understand the politics a little bit,” Francis says. “The big political problems that are likely to come up in conversation, just be aware of them.”

When you’re booking lodging, if you can, choose locally owned hotels and Airbnbs — you’re putting your money back into the community. While Airbnb has been linked to rising rent and diminishing housing supply , without any systemic policy change targeting short-term rentals, individuals choosing to abstain from Airbnb bookings will have negligible impact. “Individuals choosing not to Airbnb because of a housing shortage is all great but the big decision that needs to be made is governments disincentivizing landlords from those practices,” Keith Jacobs, a sociologist at the University of Tasmania, told the Guardian in 2022 . There are some alternatives based on your needs and budget, including traditional bed and breakfasts and house and pet sitting . 

For an extra step, you can call a hotel and ask how much of their staff live within a few miles of the property and if they’re paying at least the minimum wage to all employees, Francis says. Other things to consider to minimize your carbon footprint while staying at a hotel: Do they have space devoted to nature on the property? Do they offer plant-based food options? Is the hotel powered by renewable energy ? “It’s not always possible in every country in the world to switch from carbon and carbon-intensive fossil fuel energy to renewable energy,” Francis says, “but it is in many.” If you’re having trouble finding a hotel, try looking at sustainable tourism company Beyond Green , which partners with hotels, resorts, and lodges that promote sustainability, and hotel booking platform Kind Traveler , which allows travelers to donate to local charities when booking hotels. 

Walker relies on information from other jetsetters in Facebook groups, such as NOMADNESS Travel Tribe , a community for Black and brown travelers. Walker will ask other members about their experiences in specific destinations, if they have connections to locals in the area, and hotel and restaurant recommendations. 

If you’re considering a tour guide or excursion company, choose a locally run business, Francis says. Not only are you supporting the economy, but locals speak the language and know the most authentic restaurants, photo opportunities, and hideaways. Search your destination’s tourism office and find their list of suggested tour guide operators, Espinosa says. 

As for how you’ll get there — and get around while you’re there — opt for transportation with the smallest carbon footprint. A flight might be necessary to get from point A to point B, but consider an extended stay in one location instead of hopping on multiple flights for a few days excursion, Francis suggests. For closer trips, try taking the bus or train . Public transit should be your preferred mode of transportation within your destination as well. 

Spend your money in local restaurants and on artisan goods

Not only do you get a more authentic experience by shopping and dining locally, but you’re putting dollars in the pockets of the people whose home you’re visiting. For Espinosa, an “authentic” trip is not one that relies on hokey attractions, but the moment when you engage with local culture. These tourist hotspots aren’t inherently bad, but they don’t give you the full picture of a destination. “When I think of my favorite memories when I travel, it’s never the wild moment of peering over the Grand Canyon, although that’s cool,” he says. “What’s always memorable to me is on my way to the Grand Canyon, I stopped at a gas station and I met an old guy and sat down and had a cup of coffee with him and he told me about his life living in the area.”

Food is an excellent entry point into a community. In the car on her way from the airport to her hotel, Walker’s first order of business on every trip is asking rideshare and taxi drivers their favorite meals. “I phrase it as like, ‘If I only have X amount of days here, what should I eat?’ Or ‘If you are coming back home from a long trip, what’s the first thing you want to eat?’ Or ‘What’s the first thing you ask your mom or your grandma or somebody in your family to make you?’” Walker says. “Because everybody has a story.”

Whenever you can, avoid chain restaurants and eat your meals at local establishments, Francis says. Try to dine at restaurants that source at least some of their ingredients locally. Spread the love: Dine at different locations every day to support multiple businesses, Espinosa says. 

When shopping, locally owned boutiques are preferable to malls — but craft or artisan markets is where you’ll make the most economic impact. “It’s a fantastic way to talk to local people about traditions and their ways of life,” Francis says, “and very often [you] end up buying something and supporting them.” Try Googling local markets, craft fairs, or artisan markets in the city you’re visiting or strike up a conversation with a local — a barista, someone sitting next to you on the bus, or a guide if you’re using one — to get their suggestions. 

Be respectful when visiting sacred or natural sites

Among the top tourist destinations worldwide are historic ruins, national parks, and holy sites. If any of these locations has a museum or educational focus associated with it, there are likely posted instructions informing visitors about photo and waste policies, clearly marked paths (for natural sites), and preservation information. It should go without saying, but follow those rules. Espinosa recommends booking a tour if they’re offered to get an in-depth look at the site.

For locations without posted visitor guidelines, err on the side of caution and ask someone nearby if entering a space or taking a photo is permitted — especially if you are photographing another person. “That’s the first and foremost most respectful thing you can do,” Espinosa says. “And guess what? It’s an opportunity to learn. Somebody feels connected to their own place … and they get to transmit information to you.” 

Operate with respect when visiting nature preserves: Stay on marked paths, take your trash with you and only dispose of it in clearly marked waste receptacles, don’t take plants, sand, shells, or other natural objects with you, and don’t disturb or touch animals.

Regardless of your itinerary, Espinosa suggests donating to area nonprofits to ensure future visitors can enjoy the location, too. For example, if you’re visiting a marsh or wetland, look for a nonprofit that supports conservation. “The people there who also enjoy doing what you enjoy doing, if that’s eating good food, if that’s music and arts, if that’s outdoor recreation,” Espinosa says, “find the people who care about that in that scene.”

Take your time and fully immerse yourself in the culture

The most memorable part of your vacation might not be angling for a glimpse of the Mona Lisa, but rather the lively chat with the owner of a fromagerie. “If you went to a destination and you only spoke to other tourists, or people in a service role,” Walker says, “then you didn’t do well by that destination, you didn’t do well by that trip.”

Don’t take for granted the joy in the smaller moments that happen when you aren’t rushing from museum to museum, reservation to reservation. Allow yourself leisure time to discover the nooks and crannies of a destination and connect with the people there. It helps to learn a few phrases of the native language — something as simple as “hello,” “please,” and “thank you,” Francis says — which earns the respect of locals. 

Remember, there are parts of the world where looser schedules prevail, so don’t stress if a train is delayed or people walk slower than they do at home. “You’re going to find you enjoy yourself more if you don’t get stressed by that and angered by that and just go with the flow,” Francis says.
