There are few things in life that will impact you as much as traveling will.

That’s because traveling has the ability to change who you are for the better. It brings out the best version of you and you gain confidence because you’ve tried awesome things and broadened your perspective. You start to appreciate the small things and learn to be present. You fall in love with life again.

While traveling has taught me more about the world and the people in it, it has also taught me about the world within. I’ve conquered some of my worst fears on my travels, and I’ve learned to get out of my comfort zone. It hasn’t always been fun, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.

Today, I live by some of the travel quotes below; Helen Keller’s in particular. If you’ve had a tough week or you need some inspiration, take a few moments to re-energize yourself with these motivational quotes from some of the world’s greatest thinkers.

Adventure is out there. Go get it!

    Love these quotes Miriam! My favorite one is “If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal”

    This has been one of my most recent favorites 🙂

      I’m glad they helped, Amy! This time of year when the weather is cold, stormy and grey I also find comfort and inspiration in quotes like these. Like Karen Blixen said: “This too shall pass” x

    Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
    It’s so true I think

    Enjoyed the quotes as well as the beautiful images, thank you. My favourite one is “To travel is to take a journey into yourself”. It develops self-awareness and it is applicable both to the wonders of physical travel and consciousness travelling within the richness of our inner being.

      I absolutely agree, Yudi. It’s one of my favorites, too.

    Hi Miriam,
    I love travelling. Every year i make a travel with my friends and always we try to make adventure. I’m slightly embarrassed to say that I love inspirational travel quotes. They capture little moments of clarity that highlight truths about travel, adventure, and life.
