Traveling taught me to see life through a different perspective. It showed me that, no matter how tough life seems, or how bad my problems are, there is always someone worse off than me.
Sometimes when I’m at home I may have a day where I feel down and not in the mood for anything. But then I think about all the amazing travel experiences I’ve had, and I’m instantly grateful and appreciative of the life I have.
This reinforces the perspective that life is a journey where we seek happiness and love, but these cannot be truly appreciated without sadness and pain.
So I’ve compiled together a collection of some of my favourite inspirational travel quotes that I find really motivational, uplifting, deep, and beautiful, and I hope you’ll enjoy them too.

Why do we travel?
Why do people travel? We travel for a number of different reasons – whether its for a well earned break, a desire to explore different cultures, do daring adventure, meet new people, or to simply get away from it all. Travel becomes a way for people to cope and deal with different situations in their lives, for some it is therapeutic, for others it helps them forget bad memories and create good ones. Some people travel for health and fitness, others travel for once in a lifetime events and opportunities.
