Travel brings us back to ourselves

“Cover the earth before it covers you.” – Dagobert D. Runes

“If you are brave enough to say goodbye, life will reward you with a new hello.” – Paulo Coelho

“Imagine a new story for your life and start living it.” – Paulo Coelho

“Man’s real home is not a house, but the Road, and that life itself is a journey to be walked on foot.” – Bruce Chatwin

“Own only what you can always carry with you: known languages, known countries, known people. Let your memory be your travel bag” – Alexandr Solzhenitsyn

“Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.”

“Choose to make a difference. – its the way we work, the way we live, and the way we are!” 

“People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.”

“Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can make anything happen.” – Johan Wolfgang von Goethe

“Stripped of your ordinary surroundings, your friends, your daily routines, your refrigerator full of food, your closet full of your clothes, you are forced into direct experience.” – Michael Crichton

“Such direct experience inevitably makes you aware of who it is that is having the experience. That’s not always comfortable, but it is always invigorating.” – Michael Crichton

“People who don’t travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what’s in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live.” – Martin Yan

“When people ask me why I still have hope and energy after all these years, I always say: Because I travel. For more than four decades, I’ve spent at least half my time on the road.” – Gloria Steinem

“Taking to the road — by which I mean letting the road take you — changed who I thought I was. The road is messy in the way that real life is messy. It leads us out of denial and into reality, out of theory and into practice, out of caution and into action, out of statistics and into stories — in short, out of our heads and into our hearts.”

“Traveler, there is no path, paths are made by walking.” – Antonio Machado

“The best dreams happen when you’re awake.” – Cherie Gilderbloom

“Your true traveler finds boredom rather agreeable than painful. It is the symbol of his liberty – his excessive freedom. He accepts his boredom, when it comes, not merely philosophically, but almost with pleasure.” – Aldous Huxley

“Travel, which is like a greater and graver science, brings us back to ourselves.” –  Albert Camus

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” – Robert Frost

“One the the great misfortunes of modern life is the want of any sudden surprise, and the absence of all adventures. Everything is so well arranged.” – Theophile Gautier

“Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.” – Jack Kerouac 

“Getting lost is sometimes the best way to find yourself” – Maxime Lagacé 

“Not all those who wander are lost.” – J.R.R. Tolkien 

“All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.” – J.R.R. Tolkien

“Collect moments. Not things.” – Unknown 

“I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list.” – Susan Sontag 

“I was surprised, as always, by how easy the act of leaving was, and how good it felt. The world was suddenly rich with possibility.” – Jack Kerouac 

“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” – T.S. Eliot

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust swirling and dancing in eddies and whirlpools in infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” – Paulo Coelho 

“To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.” – Freya Stark
