If there’s one thing I really like in life it’s a good quote, another thing I absolutely adore is to travel. So it’s pretty natural that I also love a good travel quote.

That’s why for today’s post I have gathered a 60 of the best travel quotes that will inspire you for your future travel or some that may make you remember fondly about former travels!
Before we dive straight into the subject let’s do a bit of background here. First, what is a quote?

60 Best Travel Quotes That Will Give You Wanderlust
I feel like most of those quotes also show you that travel is one of the things that will also teach you some of the most valuable life lessons. It makes you realise a lot of things about the world we live in. For those, like me and you who are able to travel we need to remember to be grateful and never forget that not everybody can do the same.
It’s silly but sometimes it can be so easy to forget things like this and take them for granted.
Another thing about what I love about quotes is that while they may be corny or cheesy sometimes, you know it, they still feel inspirational or motivational. It can broaden your vision and allow you to see life and the way we see travel to a whole different level. And I am a huge fan of MOTIVATIONAL travel quotes and I love them, even more, when they’re paired with beautiful travel photographies, that’s why I created those customs images to inspire you too!
