When we can’t find inspiration or motivation within ourselves and for our dreams, we look for them outside.
Like a good horoscope or a bible of proverbs, inspirational quotes are guides and reminders that help align us to the path towards our dreams. For instance, I have a board on Pinterest dedicated to the collection of travel quotes and inspirations that will inspire me to travel, when I’m not. They are words and ideas that I resonate with, enough to beam with pride.
We need to know our travel dreams are possible and that wandering makes sense. Travel is to throw off who we think we should be, to be who we are. It is to walk with courage into the unknown and formless, and make the intangibles tangible. It is a place of deep magic. Yes, I am a traveler. If you’re reading this, you are probably one too.
Read, enjoy, pin and be inspired by these 13 awesome quotes that will inspire you to hit the road and travel.
