Happy Quotes About Travel & Places

Traveling is one of my favorite pastimes. Stepping off a plane, train or boat in a totally new location fills you with such excitement and eagerness to explore. And landing in a favorite familiar place is equally wonderful – you recognize the smells, sounds and even the feeling in the air. Even though it can be challenging at times (especially flying these days), I think traveling and seeing new places is essential for keeping one’s inner child alive.

Here are some of my favorite travel quotes:

“The first condition of understanding a foreign country is to smell it.”
Rudyard Kipling

“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
Aldous Huxley

“Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.”

“Not all those who wander are lost.”
J. R. R. Tolkien

“A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.”
Lao Tzu

“All travel has its advantages. If the passenger visits better countries, he may learn to improve his own. And if fortune carries him to worse, he may learn to enjoy it.”

Lin Yutang

“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a cash advance.”
