⋘ Quotes that Inspire Travel ⋙


This week’s Wanderlust Wednesday is another edition of quotes that inspire travel. Here are 10 quotes from travelers that give fuel to my wanderlust-fire. I hope you enjoy!


Most travelers hurry too much… the great thing is to stray and travel with eyes of the spirit wide open, and not too much factual information. To tune in, without reverence, idly– but with real inward attention. It is to be had for the feeling…. You can extract the essence of a place once you know how. If you just get as still a needle, you’ll be there.

« Lawrence Durrell »

Wanderlust, the very strong or irresistible impulse to travel, is adopted untouched from the German, presumably because it couldn’t be improved upon. Workarounds  like the French passion du voyage don’t quite capture the same meaning. Wanderlust is not a passion for travel exactly; it’s something more animal and more fickle – something more like lust. We don’t often lust after very many things in life. We don’t need words like worklust or homemakinglust.
