“I love to travel, but hate to arrive” – Albert Einstein

Einstein had it right all along! It’s not about the destination you are going to, but rather the journey that matters. What happens along the way to your next beautiful travel destination will be what really shapes your experience and memories of the trip. Live in the moment and make sure that the end destination is your “cherry on top”, not the only thing you focus on for your whole trip.

Famous quotes about travel for posters

“Travel reminds us of what we share and what we have become – the ability for us to recognize ourselves in each other” – Barack Obama

One of the greatest leaders in American history is a big believer in traveling. This quote was taken from an interview he did with BBC after he was talking about his experiences traveling in Kenya and meeting new people in his 20’s. He found that after meeting new people while on the road, he was able to relate to them without even speaking the same language. Exchanging food and facial expressions were enough to know how much they had in common as humans.

Inspirational travel quote Barack Obama

“It’s a big world out there, it would be a shame not to experience it” – J. D. Andrews

This is one of those travel quotes that will motivate your journeys because it shows that the world is HUGE! In terms of our own travels, Ine has been to over 50 countries since she was 18 years old. And there’s still so much we want to see together. Our bucket list is endless because we realize we live in one of the most diverse and special planets in the entire universe. When we have such a beautiful planet to live on, it would be silly not to see as much of it as possible!

Famous quote on travel

“Oh the places you’ll go” – Dr. Seuss

This was one of Zac’s favorite books growing up! His mom would read it to him at night when he was young and he would drift off into a dream world of places he might go in the future. Little did he know, he would be traveling the world for real and helping people find their own travel inspiration one day!

Dr. Seuss Travel Quote

“Live life with no excuses, travel with no regret” – Oscar Wilde

Even if you have hiccups on the road and miss out on highlight destinations on your road trip, it’s ok! It’s more about the journey and what moments you were in while traveling. Don’t regret a single thing. We’ve had some of the best days of our lives traveling when we did an activity that we didn’t plan. And we’ve had some down moments when the destination wasn’t like how we imagined it in pictures. BUT, we never regretted any of those moments and are happy we experienced all of them.

“I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met” - John Green

This is one of those awesome travel quotes for your and your friends that speaks to the idea of being open to new experiences and people. The world has so much to offer and your next best memory is very likely to be with someone you’ve never met before or in some place that you’ve never been. New is good, especially when traveling.

Travel quote about cities

“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

If you could predict what you will have done in your life 20 years from now, life would be boring. You would know it all before it happened. Even though you don’t know what’s going to happen, it’s important to put yourself in as many self-growth situations as possible. You will have many stories to tell if you’ve put yourself out there and taken advantage of the experiences offered through traveling over the next 20 years. You won’t regret it!

Mark Twain famous travel quote

“Wonder. Wander. Repeat.”

If you are a wanderer at heart, then this is the perfect quote for you. As travelers ourselves, we constantly feel like we’re in an endless cycle of new adventures and experiences. And we love it.

“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

We are big believers in taking the path less traveled. For instance, everyone can go to Machu Picchu by bus, get a tour with thousands of people, and see the ancient ruins. However, what about going on a 4-day trek through the Andes to get there? Entering through the “Sun gate” just like people had to do when they were invited to visit the area in ancient times? This experience will give you much more long-lasting pleasure and memories than being in a crowded tour bus to see this world wonder. Trust us, we tried both and prefer the hike in every time!

Famous travel quote from a book

“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” – John Steinbeck

The only thing in life that is for sure is the fact that everything changes. If your spirit is like ours, then these kind of wanderlust travel quotes resonate with you. The world is in a constant state of ebb and flow. Similar to the tides of the oceans being influenced by the moon, we as humans cannot control what happens to us. We can only control how we react to moments and what we do to put ourselves in situations we desire to be in. If you want to visit Switzerland, book your ticket. But once you get there, expect to have to react to situations that you didn’t think of and learn on the fly. Don’t be scared of those uncertain moments, but rather embrace them and know that YOU GOT THIS!
