One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.
– Henry Miller
“Let’s not travel to tick things off lists or collect half hearted semi treasures to be places in dusty drawers in empty rooms. Rather, we’ll travel to find grounds and rooftops and tiny hidden parks, where we’ll sit and dismiss the passing time, spun in the city’s web ’til we’ve surrendered, content to be spent and consumed. I need to feel a place while I’m in it.”
— Victoria Erickson
Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow
It is good to have an end to journey toward; but it is the journey that matters, in the end.
– Ernest Hemingway
Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
I have found out that there ain’t no surer way to find out whether you like people or hate them than to travel with them
– Mark Twain
Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you – it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you… Hopefully, you leave something good behind.
— Anthony Bourdain
I don’t know where I’m going, but I’m on my way.
– Carl Sagan
You get a strange feeling when you’re about to leave a place, I told him, like you’ll not only miss the people you love but you’ll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you’ll never be this way ever again.
― Azar Nafisi,
People travel because it teaches them things they could learn no other way.
We are torn between a nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.
— Carson McCullers
Arriving at each new city, the traveler finds again a past of his that he did now know he had: the foreignness of what you no longer are or no longer possess lies in wait for you in foreign, unpossessed places.
— Italo Calvino
The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask

We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.
– Anais Nin
I’m not sure what I’ll do, but – well, I want to go places and see people. I want my mind to grow. I want to live where things happen on a big scale
— F. Scott Fitzgerald
What are your favorite travel quotes?
I’m a traveling soul, I have to go, because I need to grow. For me, this is an important reason to travel.
I love this post! These quotes basically sum up why I travel. Another favorite of mine is „You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart always will be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.“
All the best,
yes, I love that quote as well! Thanks for sharing!
All the best
