⋙I love travel quotes. I never get tired of reading inspirational words from others. Whenever I’m tired of working to save money, feeling stuck at home or any number of other cases of homesickness for the road roads of wanderlust-wisdom always make me feel so much better. So, here are 10 more travel quotes!
There is an intense but simple thrill in setting off in the morning on a mountain trail, knowing that everything you need is on your back. It is a confidence in having left the inessentials behind and of entering a world of natural beauty that has not been violated, where money has no value, and possessions are a dead weight. The person with the fewest possessions is the freest. Thoreau was right.”
» Paul Theroux «
“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 «
On the road, you’ll learn that travel is only partially about the destination. Being out of your element – wherever you are in the world – teaches you to tap into your survival skills physically, mentally, and socially. You will figure out valuable lessons about yourself and how you respond to novel situations. Some people you meet will lead lives wildly different from yours, and others will be eerily similar. You will find that friendship is universal; that language barriers are easy to overcome; that no matter how broke you are, there is always a way to get a drink, share a laugh, and dance like you mean business. You will sleep standing up, eat lying down, sprint through airports and bus stations like an Olympic athlete, get thrown off your intended path only to find something much more exciting, discuss political theory using mostly gestures and grunts and love every minute of it.”

I want a life measured in first steps on foreign soils and deep breaths in brand new seas. I want a life measured in welcome signs, each stamped with a different name, borders marked with metal and paint. Show me the streets that don’t know the music of my wandering feet and I will play their song upon them. Perfume me please in the smells of far away, I will never wash my hair if it promises to stay. I want a life measured in the places I haven’t gone, short sleeps on long flights and new words to describe the dawn.
