Okay so maybe it isn't exactly true because if you buy a house, it may grow in value and if you buy stocks, you may get lucky and hit the jackpot, but you can never go wrong with travel. It brings riches in life with expeirences, learning and making new friends.

Mark Twain's Famous Travel Quote

#60: “Travel is  fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness., and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts.” ~ Mark Twain

I remember clipping out cards from Oprah Winfrey's “when looking for inspiration in my life more than a decade ago.

We would put her cards up all over our house. On the refrigerator, in the bathroom on our mirrors…everywhere. They were used to motivate us to find our purpose in life.

travel quotes by ghandi

#34: “You must be the change you wish to see in the world.” ~

Travel often opens our eyes to different ways of thinking and understanding the world.

We as travel bloggers love to preach what we have learned to the world, but we also need to live by example.

That is something we strive to work on every day.

travel quotes for dreamers


#33: “Don't quit your day dream.”

One of the things Dave and I are most thankful for is the fact that we never stopped dreaming.

We didn't become professional travel bloggers until our mid 30s. If we settled (like we were supposed to in life) we'd still be working at our jobs thinking we weren't allowed to have dreams once we reached a certain age.

Never stop dreaming.


travel quotes jo watson

#32: “There's a sunrise and sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.”

This is one of my favourite travel quotes because you don't have to travel to enjoy a sunset.

Too many of us wait until we are abroad to appreciate life and nature. Get out there now and start living today. From home!

Not all those who wander are lost. In fact, wandering can help you find yourself, or find that person you lost many years ago.
