“Travelling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it” – Cesare Pavese


"What beautiful things have you achieved today?"


“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things” – Henry Miller


“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white” – Mark Jenkins


“The traveler doesn’t know where he’s going, and the tourist doesn’t know where he is.”


There is more to life than being a passenger. - Amelia Earhart


“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain


"The world is your backyard, explore it!"


"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints"


"I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side"


"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness...Broad, wholesome,charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime." Mark Twain


"The world is a book and those who don't travel read only one page" - St Augustine.


"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step"


"Not all those who wander are lost"


"Not all misadventure remains misadventure. Travel plans gone awry can take you places, connect you with people and cast you into situations that may just change your life" - Amanda Jones


“A journey never ends. Only travellers do. And they can stay alive through memories and narrations. When the traveller seated on a beach and said” there’s nothing else to see” he knew it was not true. We need to see what we didn’t see, to see again what was already seen, to see in spring what was seen during the summer, to see during the day what was seen at night. We need to see in a sunny day what was seen in a rainy day, to see the green harvest, the ripe fruit, the stone that has changed its place, a new shady place. We should go back to walk in our footsteps again and to trace new patterns. We need to start over our trip. Always. The traveller comes back soon.” (J. Saramago, Journey to Portugal)


"To travel is to live" – H.C. Anderson


"Are we there yet?"


"We should remember that the world is wide; that there are a thousand million different human wills, opinions, ambitions, tastes and loves; that each person has a different history, constitution, culture, character from all the rest; that human life is the work, the play, the ceaseless action and reaction upon each other of these different atoms. Then, we should go forth into life with the smallest expectations, but with the largest patience; with a keen relish for and appreciation of everything beautiful, great and good, but with a temper so genial that the friction of the world shall not wear upon our sensibilities; with an equanimity so settled that no passing breath nor accidental disturbance shall agitate or ruffle it; with a charity broad enough to neutralize what is bitter in it- determined not to be offended when no wrong is meant, nor even when it is."


"Travel is the great escape from known to unknown"


Travel is the only way we get a wider perspective on the world…It’s the only way we meet each other and realize we’re all traveling on the same planet.


"Sometimes a trip starts with just one picture, one image, even one taste or one smell…You get a whiff of that aroma and you want to go there."


"My travel list which sadly (or perhaps not so sadly?) I will never get to the bottom of, is what keeps me on the road."


"Travel is a journey into the unknown... no matter where you are"


"I love travel because you may be uncomfortable, hungry, hot and sweaty, cold and shivering…but damn it, you will never be bored!
