Travel Quotes With Friends
Count down our top travel quotes with friends! Feel free to use these quotes and images to inspire your next adventure or to tell your friends how much you enjoyed your recent trip with them.
“Friendship is the golden thread that ties the heart of all the world” - John Evelyn
Isn’t this beautiful? We love the idea of the world being connected by something. In our mind, this is “love”. But it can easily be translated into friendship as well. It’s an amazing thing to be able to share your experiences with another person. The memories you create with friends on the road will stay with you and your friends forever. You will be able to tell these stories to your children one day.
“A journey is best measured in friends, not in miles” – Tim Cahill
We believe that all adventures are better when enjoyed together. We also believe that it’s about the memories you create with those friends rather than the destination that matters. If you live in the moment and gain a stronger friendship along the road, you will have a much stronger memory than if you just rushed to the endpoint and didn’t enjoy the small things along the way. Live in the moment and do it together! Use this travel quote next time you're in nature with your friends.
“Good friends follow you anywhere” – Winnie the Pooh
Winnie the Pooh is not only one of the best animated bears of all time, but he is also has some of the most inspirational travel quotes! There are many “fair-weather” friends out there who would not dare to get outside of their comfort zone. When push comes to shove, they would rather stay at home and be comfortable rather than expanding their horizons. That’s ok. But if you want to travel with friends, make sure you invite the ones who will stick with you when times get tough. When you have to make hard decisions on the road, it’s important to have friends who have a similar mindset to you. Those are the good travel buddies who you will create the best memories with!
"Walking with a friend in the dark is better than walking alone in the light." - Helen Keller
This is one of our favorite travel quotes of all time and it's so true! There have been many times on the road for us where we’ve run into a sticky situation. And it was so much better to have each other instead of figuring it out on our own. Because you can always have great times traveling solo, but there are bound to be moments out there where you have to problem solve and come to the best solution. It’s much easier to do that with a friend beside you.

“There is an unspoken bond you create with the friends you travel with” – Kristen Sarah
Have you ever gone on a trip with a friend and felt like you understood each other on a new level once the trip was over? We’ve felt it too. Every time we complete an adventure together, we feel like there’s something new we learn about both ourselves and the people we travel with. A deeper connection that allows us to bond even more. This is one of the reasons why travel brings you happiness.
“True friends never apart maybe in distance never in heart” – Helen Keller
When you travel, you may leave your friends at home for a long period of time. These can be hard times, but know that your true friends will always be there for you, ready to hear about your experiences and adventures. You will make new friends on the road as well, and once you leave them to go back home, you will still be with them together at heart. True friends have a spiritual connection that lives on forever!
“Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter” – Izaak Walton
Have you ever gone on a hike and felt like it was going to take you a lifetime to reach the top? In those moments, you were likely hiking alone. If you have close friends with you, you’re much more likely to push through those hard moments and realize that it’s not as long or hard as you thought. You can get through anything if you have your friends with you!
“Good times and crazy friends make the best memories” – Unknown
Everyone has that one crazy friend! The life of the party. The wild one who will drag you out when you feel like resting. They are always pushing you out of your comfort zone. These friends are so valuable to your personal development, especially when traveling. They will enable you to see things you didn’t know where there and meet people you wouldn’t have met on your own. Cherish these friends and the memories you make together! Find your inner wanderlust with these travel quotes or through your crazy friends. Either way works!
“Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you” - Misty Copeland
This travel quote with friends is one of our favorite! You can do anything when you have a solid support group around you. Imagine trying to climb Mt. Everest on your own. It would be really tough to get through the hard moments! But if you had your close friend with you, there is a much higher chance you will get to the top and have some stories to tell at the end.

“Friends make the world go ‘round” – World Wild Hearts
This is one of the fun short travel quotes that we made up! And we truly believe in it. You can have the coolest pictures in the world from some of the most epic viewpoints possible, but if you have nobody there to enjoy them with, it’s just not the same. Friends keep you company on the road, they are there for you when times are hard, and they celebrate with you in the good times. Traveling is a full circle process and friends are at the center of that sphere.
“We are all travelers in the wilderness of the world & the best we can find in our travels is an honest friend” – Robert Louis Stevenson
No matter where you go on your travels, you will never have better memories than when you make a new friend abroad. A new friend will open your eyes to the real way of living in that country. The local experience. And these new friends will be people that you care about the most once you leave those new countries. People you can always reach out to and connect with throughout the rest of your life.
“One of the great things about travel is that you find out how many good, kind people there are” - Edith Wharton
There are many stereotypes out there around what countries are like (including what the people are like in those countries). However, it’s important that you don’t take the medias word for it. There are great people everywhere in the world. In fact, throughout our travels the majority of people we have talked to have been helpful and kind. We’ve been to the “dangerous” city of Cape Town and found great people all over the city. This is after everyone told us how dangerous it was going to be there.
“A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walks out” – Walter Winchell
When traveling, good friends are the ones that are always there for you. If you get lost on the road trying to find your way back to the hostel, they are the ones that are calling your phone and checking where you are. They are the ones offering a hand when you have to get over that last hill on your hike. They pick you up when you’re down. Keep those friends close!
“There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met” – Jim Henson
It’s really hard to describe that feeling you get when you connect with a new person on such a deep level that you call them your friend instantly. These encounters happen more often when traveling because many people don’t expect to meet others with similar mindsets and ideals abroad. Going to a foreign country, many expect to find vastly different viewpoints on life. However, we always find more similarities between people than differences and that’s a great feeling.
“One measure of friendship consists not in the number of things friends can discuss, but in the number of things they need no longer mention” – Clifton Fadiman
This is a great reminder of the special moments that are shared between friends while traveling. There are countless memories that you will create together on the road when you travel with great friends. These unspoken bonds can be translated through a look or a word and without telling the whole story. With good friends, those bonds become feelings ingrained in your blood and will live forever in your minds!
“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together” – Woodrow T. Wilson
It's funny how these travel quotes impact us. The world can be a chaotic and hectic place. There are a million priorities for governments, people, and businesses. However, the connecting piece between all of these moving parts has always been friendship. People travel to see friends, they go to restaurants with friends, they go to shows with friends. Nothing would function very well in this world if everyone just kept to themselves.
"A single rose can be my garden… a single friend, my world" - Leo Buscaglia
This is such a beautiful travel quote! A rose in itself is one of the world’s most beautiful flowers, but it pales in comparison to a blossoming friendship. Even with just one person, there are so many layers and complexities to a friendship that will light your soul on fire. Once you have that bond, do everything you can to keep it. And if you can, go on a new adventure with that person soon!
"A good friend knows all your best stories, but a best friend has lived them with you" – Unknown
Some of our best friends in this world are people who we met traveling. We could not see them for two years and still be just as close. Why? Because we have shared experiences with these people. We’ve gone on adventures with them in South America, Africa, Canada, and Europe. All these experiences have come together to form friendships that we will never forget.
“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart” - Eleanor Roosevelt
Although you will meet many people on the road, there will only be a few true friends that stick forever. Some will come and go (and that’s ok) whereas others will continue to be a part of your life forever. What we’ve found is that when you’re traveling and meeting people, it all depends on what stage of life those people are in. Even if you have similar interests, you might not stay close friends if they have different life priorities at that time. However, you will make a lifelong friend in those special moments when you’re on the same wavelength and also the same life stage.
“Share your smile with the world. It's a symbol of friendship and peace.” - Christie Brinkley
When you’re traveling, don’t forget to smile! You might just make a new friend by doing so. Just by smiling, you might start up a conversation or put the other person at ease enough to open up. Once people from different countries get on that level of communication, the conversation possibilities are endless!
