Recently, I asked some of my favorite travel writers what their favorite quotes are. Here’s what they came up with:
Andi of My Beautiful Adventures: “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain
Annette of Bucket List Journey: ”Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you traveled.” – Mohammed
Beverly of Pack Your Passport: ”Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you’ve imagined!” – Henry David Theroux.
Fidel of Scene With a Hart: ”In the world, there are so many women with which you can sleep and so few women with which you can speak.” – Ernest Hemingway
Hayley of Hayley on Holiday: “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.” – Unknown
Helen of Travel With Laughter: “Laughter is an instant vacation.” – Milton Berle

Kate of Adventurous Kate: ”Drink heavily with locals whenever possible.” - Anthony Bourdain
Matthew of Matthew Hirtes: ”The road of life twists and turns and no two directions are ever the same. Yet our lessons come from the journey, not the destination.” - Don Williams, Jr.
Melissa of Press Play: “Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.” – Paul Theroux
Pamela of Spunkgirl Monologues: “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.” - Maya Angelou
