There are a lot of great pictures, quotes and articles out there that promote travel. This page has some of my favorites that inspire me!
I took the following photos myself and added the quotes. More to come!
"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference." -Robert Frost
"For a girl who travels can never just stay in one place forever. Her heart may be yours, but her soul longs for an affair with the entire world. You'll have to let her go eventually, but not too much. Because there is always just one thing all travelers need at the end of the day. So go find a girl who travels. Love her, care for her. Challenge yourself to be a better man and be that place she calls home." -Martin Perez
The original post where this quote is from can be found here. It's very sweet and I suggest giving it a read!
"The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are." - Samuel Johnson
"Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave makes behind, however small. And in return, life - and travel - leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks - on your body or on your heart - are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt." - Anthony Bourdain
"There is something hopelessly romantic in those who move somewhere new — or who stay in a constant state of traveling — because they are looking for that first-few-moments thrill and promise of change that a first date can often provide. They become nomads or ex-pats of their own volition, leaving because they know exactly what will happen if they stay — nothing. The security and pleasure of “home” is something they are always looking to create, but can never quite put their finger on. And though the idea remains that changes will have to come from within, and not be spontaneously created by a new zip code, their dogged pursuit of the magic street corner which will make things beautiful and new again is full of a certain romance." - Chelsea Fagan
The original post where this quote is from can be found here. I thought it was a good read, you might want to check it out!
"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries." - Aldous Huxley
"Don’t date a girl who travels. She is hard to please. The usual dinner-movie date at the mall will suck the life out of her. Her soul craves for new experiences and adventures. She will be unimpressed with your new car and your expensive watch. She would rather climb a rock or jump out of an airplane than hear you brag about it.
Don’t date a girl who travels as she tends to speak her mind. She will never try to impress your parents or friends. She knows respect, but isn’t afraid to hold a debate about global issues or social responsibility.
So never date a girl who travels unless you can keep up with her. And if you unintentionally fall in love with one, don’t you dare keep her. Let her go."
This is really a great article. Read the rest of it here.
"No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow." - Lin Yutang
Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have traveled." - Mohammed
