Five Travel Quotes to Keep You Going

August 28, 2015,

What does travel mean for you? Does it mean adventure? Does it mean growth? Maybe both of these? Is it a learning experience? Does it challenge you? I hope it does all of these things, and more.

There should be some bumps in the road and there should be an adventure and a story worth telling (there will be). This is true for both solo travel and when traveling with friends, family or your significant other. With each trip, with each day and with each travel partner, there will be a unique challenge. And there is always an opportunity for growth and for learning. If and when things become especially tough (i.e. you realize last minute that you forgot to book an accommodation for a night and fear being homeless or your luggage doesn’t arrive and it’s confirmed that it’s in another country – all real things that have happened to me), here are five travel quotes to keep you in mind and keep you going while traveling: 

#1 “Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.” – ProverbTravel quotes: fun with bubbles
#2 “A winner is just a loser who tried one more time.” – George M. Moore Jr.

#3 “We are all faced with a series of great opportunities disguised as impossible situations.” – Charles R. Swindoll

#4 “Just keep swimming.” – Dory, Finding Nemo

#5 Basically… Don’t give up; you’re just a moment away from the magic.

    I love the quotes you’ve chosen. And yes, not having a place to sleep has happened to me, but I ended up booking a really beautiful and luxurious hotel and everything turned out great! So, never give up and it ends up becoming a story to laugh over and say, ‘Remember that time in…when we…’ and you relive the adventure all over again.
