Some of the best travel quotes are the ones that make you crack a smile or burst out laughing, especially when you’re not in a good mood, having a bad day, or just in need of cheering up.

On my travels I often stumble across hilarious quotes, signs and phrases that make me laugh and do a double take – often found on the walls and ceilings of cool hostels or airbnbs, as well as graffitied in streets. I especially love the really witty and clever quotes.

So read on, and have a good laugh – and leave a comment below on what quote tickled you, or let me know what (if any) you found lame.
