"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all" - Helen Keller


We whole heartedly believe in this one! Every time there is an option between going on an adventure and taking the "safe route", we have always chosen the adventure. And you know what? We've never regretted those moments! It's when we feel truly alive.

"Stop worrying about the potholes in the road and enjoy the journey" - Babs Hoffman


This travel quote was really relevant to us recently when we traveled to Namibia. It is a country full of dirt roads (literally, there's one main paved road down the middle of the country and the rest are full of potholes). During our trip we even got a flat tire and nearly veered off the road! Luckily, we had our usual "casual agenda" and took our time to fix it and keep our journey alive. No biggie! All part of the adventure ;)

"The world is a book, and those who never travel only read one page" - Saint Augustine


Have you ever read a really good book and felt like you had a whole new understanding on life? That's what we feel every time we step into a new country and meet a local or climb a new mountain. Those new experiences fill up your soul with a new appreciation for something you never thought of before and your whole world can become just a little more clear.

Travel quotes that inspire new adventures


"Jobs fill your pocket, but adventures fill your soul" - Jamie Lyn Beatty


Bingo! This is one of the best short quotes on travel and it literally defines our reason for traveling. True, you definitely need to have some type of income to ensure you have your basic needs covered. BUT, when we have felt a true sense of belonging and purpose in this world has when we have been deep into a wild adventure off the beaten path. Our hearts are never fuller than in these moments.

Jobs fill your pocket, but adventures fill your soul

"Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore" - Andre Gide


Traveling definitely takes courage. It can be scary to take that step and really put yourself out there to the world. However, sometimes it is necessary to fully break out of your comfort zone head first and DIVE IN! If you don't enjoy it, you'll know that lifestyle is not for you. But our guess is that you'll enjoy that travel lifestyle just like us. You never know until you try! Use wanderlust quotes like this to fuel your inner fire.

"Life begins at the end of your comfort zone" - Neale Donald Walsch


Neale Donald Walsch is a true inspiration! This fact is 100% true. In our case, we strive to get out of our comfort zones on a daily basis. Why? Because we've felt the power of letting go and trying something new. It has a truly life-changing effect on your body and soul and that effect can only be unleashed by a few actions in this world, traveling being one of them.

"Not all who wander are lost" - J.R.R. Tolkien


One time, we were so lost trying to find a good hiking trail near the beach we were staying at. We had no idea where to go and just decided to wander down the first trail we came to. Of our 3 months on the road, it ended up being our favorite hike of the trip! One of the most beautiful sunsets together. And it was completely random. Case and point, just because you don't always know where you're going doesn't mean you're lost in this world.




"Catch the trade winds in your sails" - Mark Twain


One of the most authentic short travel quotes we've seen by Mark Twain. Trade winds have the ability to push boats at higher speeds than normal due to the wind flying through their sails. While not as many boats utilize these trade winds as in the past, it's still relevant today and also historical in a sense. Our ancestors used trade winds to navigate the seas as early explorers of new lands. Now we follow in their footsteps and use metaphorical trade winds to go with the flow and let adventure take its course!

"Once a year, go someplace you've never been before" - Dalai Lama


If the Dalai Lama says it, then you better do it! This is a great rule to live by and truly one of the best travel quotes we've seen in the world by one of the best people in the world. Even if you only go a couple hours outside of your hometown, there is great value in seeing new places. You never know what you might learn on a new adventure!

"Travel is never a matter of money but of courage" - Paulo Coelho

And yet, we've had the best memories of our lives in destinations all across the world! All you have to do is budget properly and sometimes choose experiences that are off the beaten path. Get out on the road and enjoy your trip with these quotes.
