15 Travel Quotes to Change Your Life

Quotes are like little pieces of wisdom. With just a couple of sentences, the author manages to convey a thought, a perspective, or sometimes an entire experience. Some people love quotes and live by them as if they are mantras to be followed, others just like to read them and be reminded of special moments in their lives.

As it stands, there’s no shortage of inspiring travel quotes! Here’s a selection of 15 quotes and what they mean for travelers.

“A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles.” – Tim Cahill

Have you ever traveled to the same destination and had a completely different experience? There’s no doubt your trip can be influenced by the weather, a holy festival, or an annoying sickness, but the truth is that what really makes it special are the people you’re with. The friendships you make when you’re traveling are intense and you’ll always remember fondly the experiences you had together.

“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

This quote is especially important as it teaches people to respect the local culture and its traditions. So, when you visit a country which eats a noodle fish soup for breakfast (mohinga in Myanmar) or where women cover the heads (many Muslim nations), they’re just being themselves! It’s humbling to understand that you are the odd one out, and that it is you who has to abide by local rules.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain

This is one of the most shared travel quotes of all time and it’s just spot on! Many people dream of foreign lands and amazing around-the-world trips, but keep finding excuses for not embarking on their journeys. All of a sudden they have a lot of adult responsibilities such as mortgages, careers, or kids, and deeply regret having missed the opportunity to travel. So, if you have to chance to travel now, just go, it’ll definitely be worth it.
