10 Quotes That Will Inspire You To Travel After Quarantine
There’s a lot of us serial travellers out there that I’d imagine are missing the empowering and thrilling feeling that exploring the world is giving us. We all need a bit of inspiration and cheering up from the doom and gloom that is this pandemic.
I thought I’d find 10 quotes that will inspire you to travel after quarantine and motivate you for your next – wait for it – traventure!
1. “I choose To Collect Memories Instead Of Things”
Valuing experiences and memories over materialism. It reminds me that material possessions will break and wear and tear but experiences are life-long and stay with you for a long period of time.
2. “My Goal Is To Die With Memories Not With Dreams”
I don’t want my life to be unfulfilled with success and not only filled with “what ifs”. I’ve always travelled with a grand aim of looking back on my life, telling the younger generations about the experiences I had. Hopefully that inspires them to go out and get the experiences they want.
3. “Not All Classrooms Have Four Walls”
This quote seems vague on the face of it. However I think it means a lot more than meets the eye. It can apply to many aspects of life and can hold many interpretations. My interpretation is that it touches on how educational and empowering travelling can be for one person. Also perhaps there are no limits or boundaries to learning.
4. “The Most Beautiful Thing In The World Is, Of Course, The World Itself”
The natural wonders, aura and diversity this world has and the opportunity to explore it in countless different ways is one. Many languages, cultures, way of life and communities. Yet the one thing that probably unites us, through the good or bad, is the everyday pursuit for our world to be a better place than it was the day before.
5. “The Best View Comes After The Hardest Climb”
Accurate to a tee because the higher you are the more of the landscape you can see and thus better scenery. Hard-work and perseverance is what I feel this quote implies metaphorically. For you to get the best in life you’re gonna have to be willing to put in the graft.
6. “Travel Is Never A Matter Of Money But Of Courage”
You can have all the money and essentials in the world. But if you dont consciously make the time and take that leap of faith to book that trip then chances are you’ll be deprived of an incredible life experience.
7. “Travelling Is About Finding Those Things You Never Knew You Were Looking For”
Finding the answers to question you didnt think of asking. You didn’t travel with the intention of meeting new people but somehow you’ve made a new friend. You didn’t travel to experiment with new food but next thing you know you come back with a favourite dessert to eat. Initially you may just have wanted to escape the routine but found inspiration for your next trip.
8. “Jobs Fill Your Pockets, But Adventures Fill Your Soul”
Its plain and simple to understand this one. Working earns you the money afforded to go and travel and gives you the means to do things. But in the end it’s the experiences and actual activities themselves that give you the joy and happiness you get from travel. Earning money on your travels is the best of both worlds. I did a post on the jobs and careers that can allow you this opportunity.
9. “The World Is A Book And Those Who Do Not Travel Read Only One Page”
Travellers are more cultured and knowledgeable about the world than those who haven’t travelled as much nor are as passionate about travelling. That’s what this spells out to me.
10. “Travel. Because Money Returns Time Doesnt.”
I instantly thought back to my first solo trip to Paris (you can read about it here) when I first saw this. In some ways it is relevant because life is too short and the more I dwell on “what ifs” or “buts” the more time I’m losing out on. The money can always be earned to afford the trip but circumstances can influence the time I have to make the trip happen.
