Looking for inspiration travel? Need to convince your budget or your significant other that travel should be in your future? Below I captured some of my latest favorite quotes and images that demonstrate the value of travel throughout our lives:
“Set aside the person you’ve always been and commit yourself to living in the moment. See a place for what it is, not for what you need it to be. Don’t compare, don’t anticipate, don’t vacillate, don’t cogitate. Simply embrace the present possibility of having an enlightening experience that reveals something you didn’t know about the world—or about yourself.” -George W. Stone, Secrets of a Travel Writer
“How can tourism help with conservation efforts? One conversation can lead to a massive change.” Travel spreads communication about important international issues. -Katie Knorovsky, Why Conservation Tourism Matters
“Create meaningful relationships – People you meet while on the road usually become some of the most valued ones in your address book, giving you points on the map to visit later on. These folks give you a glimpse outside your hometown circle of friends, forcing you into new and refreshing perspectives on things.” –AirTreks
Smooth your transitions. “If you happen to be between jobs, schools, kids, or relationships, around the world travel can be a perfect way to separate these life stages, give you insight into your next phase and provide closure on the last one. Plus there’ll be a nice time stamp on that moment in your life.” –AirTreks
As I said in my Why Travel?, Why Travel? Part Two, Why Travel? Part Three, and Why Travel? Part Four posts, each of these quotes makes the wanderlust in me grow stronger. Don’t hold back- go on another adventure and be inspirNational!
