20 Quotes To Fuel Your Wanderlust

The weather’s been a bit miserable lately, hasn’t it? I don’t know about you but It’s making me want to just jet off to somewhere hot and exotic and never come back! That’s a little bit difficult to do at the moment, though, as I’m nearing the end of my degree so I need to stay put for the next few months.

Knowing that I’ll be here for the foreseeable, in cold and rainy England, is quite sad, and one of the things that’s keeping me going is planning my travels for after I graduate. That obviously involves spending hours on Pinterest which inevitably introduces me to so many of those pretentious, photoshopped images of destinations adorned with quotes about travelling. However, as much as I claim to dislike them, reading/pinning these quotes is a little guilty pleasure of mine, so much so that I decided to dedicate a whole blog post to them! If you’ve not planned anything yet, or are not looking to do some travelling/go on holiday anytime soon, here are some of my favourite travel quotes to fuel your wanderlust (but with minimal Instagram-esque images):

‘Travel far enough, you meet yourself’- David Mitchell

‘Fill your life with experiences, not things. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.’

‘I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met’

‘We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.’ ― Jawaharlal Nehr

‘The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way.’

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float,
To gain all while you give,
To roam the roads of lands remote,
To travel is to live.” – Hans Christian Anderson

‘Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all’- Helen Keller

“Travel as much, as far, and as long as you can. Life’s not meant to be lived in one place.”

‘Better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times’

yes to new adventures

‘Good things come to those who book flights’

‘Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life’- Michael Palin

‘You get a strange feeling when you leave a place. like you’ll not only miss the people you love, but you miss the person you are at this time and place because you’ll never be this way ever again.’

‘It’s time to remember what it’s like to feel alive’

‘Travelling- It leaves you speechless then turns you into a storyteller’- Ibn Battuta

‘Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.’- Jack Kerouac

‘it’s better to look back on life and think I can’t believe I did that than think I wish I did that

‘Not all those who wander are lost’ J. R. R. Tolkien
