Happy Tuesday, friends!
I have recently come into contact with some really, really great travelers. I decided to poll all of my new friends by asking what their favorite travel quotes are, and what they mean to them. I love collaboration posts because they seem to bring a new energy into the blog the post is on, you know? And, come on. Who doesn’t love travel quotes? Travel quotes inspire adventurers in ways you can’t explain. Anyways, here are some quality travel bloggers – read their quotes! If you like them, venture over to their blog (or instagram) by clicking their picture.
GABI – @GABI_NIV ON INSTA
“I was born in Ecuador, at 3 I moved to Spain, at 8 I moved to Canada, I now live in Germany. I’ve always been and will always be an immigrant and a traveler. I sometimes envy those who have one place to call home, but I can’t help but wonder what it would be like to call everywhere my home. It’s difficult but I’ve chosen to embrace what it seems like I was destined to do, which is travel. :)”
ODOARDO – QUEIDUE.IT
“Being a long term expat and having changed a few countries in the last years, my girlfriend and I sometimes feel unsure of where we are heading. But this quote reminds us that there is something at the end of the path, which is just not straightforward as it happens for most of the people.”
AILEEN – IAMAILEEN.COM
You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.
“It’s a bittersweet thing but it’s very true; it’s what travel can do to you… and it’s not a bad thing at all. I definitely don’t regret this way of life and I’m more than glad to scatter my ‘heart’ everywhere. I love leaving a mark — may it be big or small — with the people that I meet, fleetingly or permanently, because in return, they leave a mark on me too that I’ll forever cherish!”
DAVE – SILVERBACKPACKER.COM
I love maps because on them you’re just inches apart from your destination.
“I have always loved maps since the age of six. I used to read them at every opportunity. Follow the travels of Marco Polo and Captain Cook and Dr. Livingstone in my Atlas. I would follow the course of the Nile, Amazon and Missippi with my finger along their route to the sea. Now I never travel anywhere without a paper map. I can always find out where I am and where to go. The moment I reach somewhere new I am on the hunt for a map from a tourist office, railway station or a bookstore. For me a Map is a must have item.”
ALICE – TEACAKETRAVELS.COM
“For me, this is what travel is all about. It’s about pushing your boundaries, facing your fears and entering something which you don’t fully know about so that you can learn, grow, progress and become a more understanding, worldly and knowledgeable human.”
CLARE – CLAREMARCI.WORDPRESS.COM
Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.
“The first time I have read this quote 2 years ago, it brought to my attention that the world is so big and there’s so many wonderful places to be discovered by my own eyes, places that’s been waiting for me to see it’s inner beauty. Life is boring if you don’t wander around. I want to explore and meet some people on my travels. It is the reason why I love to travel to other places at least once a year. I am so excited whenever I’m traveling.”
“This quote means so much to me because I have been lucky enough to live and work across 6 countries in 6 continents over the past 7 years, and have traveled to 106 cities in 33 countries. Travel teaches you patience, awareness and cultural understanding and I couldn’t imagine living my life without getting out there to experience our amazing world.”
JACK – THEGLOBALAUSSIE.COM
The world is a book, and those who don’t travel only read one page.
St. Augustine of Hippo
“This quote is my motivation quote to broaden my world view by trying new things in every aspect of my life, to embrace change no matter if it is for the worse or better. I personally think travel should be a obligatory thing for every teenager/young adult to undertake travel to another country. It really puts things in to perspective. Not everyone can afford to travel, most of the world can’t travel when you compare numbers but for those who can. Go out and see the world with your own eyes. Media is a small window out into the world.”
LEILA – LEILASPASSPORT.COM
Of all the books in the world, the best stories are found between the pages of a passport.
“This is actually the quote for my blog and the name of my blog is because of that quote. I have triple nationality and I found it amazing how I can travel everywhere with one of those passports and I don’t need any visa. I’m definitely taking advantage of my passports and travel the world.”

If you’re 22, 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, eat and cook. Learn from them — wherever you go.
This quote reminds me why I changed the way I travelled the world. I realised that the only way you can learn about a particular culture is through traveling slow and finding out how people live, eat and cook. I did this for 3 years in the whole of Latin America — cooking Mexican food, speaking Argentine Spanish slang, etc. Name it, I learned it this way!
A big thank you to the rad folks who contributed to this post. Thanks for sharing your passion with us! Happy adventures. Hmm… you have me inspired!
