Take every chance you get in life, because some things only happen once.
Thus, when we allow ourselves to imagine as we once did, we know, with a sudden jarring clarity, that if we don’t go right now, we’re never going to do it. And we’ll be haunted by our unrealized dreams and know that we have sinned against ourselves gravely.
And then there is the most dangerous risk of all – the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.
We'll never be as young as we are tonight.
I saw that my life was a vast glowing empty page and I could do anything I wanted.
The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on earth, then I ask myself the same question.
If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet.
It's hard to get lost if you don't know where you're going.
If you don’t know where you’re going, any road will take you there.
If you do not know where you are going, every road will get you nowhere.
~Henry A Kissinger
If you don't know where you are, a map won't help.
Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God.
There's a book that tells you where you should go on your vacation. It's called your checkbook.

Travel is never a matter of money but of courage.
Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.
Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.
Better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times
A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of a faraway place. A traveler on the plane sees the farmhouse ... and thinks of home.
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.
People say you have to travel to see the world. Sometimes I think that if you just stay in one place and keep your eyes open, you’re going to see just about all that you can handle.
The true fruit of travel is perhaps the feeling of being nearly everywhere at home.
The journey itself is home.
There are only two emotions in a plane: boredom and terror.
Now I know why they tell you to put your head between your knees on crash landings. You think you're going to kiss your ass good-bye.
I feel about airplanes the way I feel about diets. It seems to me that they are wonderful things for other people to go on.
Airplane travel is nature’s way of making you look like your passport photo.
Whenever we safely land in a plane, we promise God a little something.
In America there are two classes of travel — first class, and with children.
One of the major problems encountered in time travel is not that of accidentally becoming your own father or mother. There is no problem involved in becoming your own father or mother that a broadminded and well-adjusted family can't cope with.
Just get on any major highway, and eventually it will dead-end in a Disney parking area large enough to have its own climate, populated by large nomadic families who have been trying to find their cars since the Carter administration.
And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind.
The only way of catching a train I ever discovered is to miss the train before.
~G K Chesterton
The more I traveled the more I realized that fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.
To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.
The most important trip you may take in life is meeting people halfway.
The traveler sees what he sees. The tourist sees what he has come to see.
~G K Chesterton
Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen.
I don't know where I'm going, but I'm on my way."
I haven't been everywhere, but it's on my list.
Life is short and the world is wide.
In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take.
I go to seek a great perhaps.
What’s in store for me in the direction I don’t take?
It is not down in any map; true places never are.
All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.
Try the great open road — you may meet God.
~Martin H Fischer
I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
To awaken quite alone in a strange town is one of the pleasantest sensations in the world.
I love the feeling of being anonymous in a city I’ve never been before.
When you're traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don't have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.
~William Least Heat Moon
Surely, of all the wonders of the world, the horizon is the greatest.
The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.
There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle, the other is as though everything is a miracle.
Some beautiful paths can’t be discovered without getting lost.
Half the fun of the travel is the esthetic of lostness.
Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.
Our happiest moments as tourists always seem to come when we stumble upon one thing while in pursuit of something else.
Traveling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Drink heavily with locals whenever possible.
You can handle just about anything that comes at you out on the road with a believable grin, common sense and whiskey.
Life is not a fairytale. If you lose your shoes at midnight, you are drunk!
He who is outside his door has the hardest part of his journey behind him.
All glory comes from daring to begin.
Every exit is an entry somewhere else.
Modern traveling is not traveling at all; it is merely being sent to a place, and very little different from becoming a parcel.
Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.
Traveler, there is no path, paths are made by walking.
Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Take only memories, leave only footprints.
There’s no way I was born to just pay bills and die.
The goal is to die with memories not dreams.
I’ll look back on this and smile because it was life and I decided to live it
Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.
I want someone to look at me the way I look at a travel magazine!
"Be strong", I whisper to my WiFi signal!
If an ass goes travelling, he’ll not come home a horse.
Travel makes a wise man better but a fool worse.
People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.
~Dagobert D Runes

So much of who we are is where we have been.
Boy, those French. They have a different word for everything.

Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you travelled.
He who has seen one cathedral ten times has seen something; he who has seen ten cathedrals once has seen but little; and he who has spent half an hour in each of a hundred cathedrals has seen nothing at all.
The slow nuanced experience of a single country is always better than the hurried, superficial experience of forty countries.
I would rather own little and see the world, than own the world and see little of it.
Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures.
I have panicked unnecessarily in all four corners of the globe.
Adventure, yeah. I guess that’s what you call it when everybody comes back alive.

~Winnie The Pooh
If you think adventures are dangerous, try routine: it's lethal.
See the world. It's more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories. Ask for no guarantees, ask for no security.

Jobs fill your pockets; Adventures fill your soul.
~Jaime Lyn Beatty
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
Sometimes the road less traveled is less traveled for a reason.
Who lives sees, but who travels sees more.
Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends... The mind can never break off from the journey.
I think that travel comes from some deep urge to see the world, like the urge that brings up a worm in an Irish bog to see the moon when it is full.
I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.
~Mary Anne Radmacher
All of life is a foreign country.
This wasn’t a strange place; it was a new one.
The air was soft, the stars so fine, the promise of every cobbled alley so great, that I thought I was in a dream.
Do you really want to look back on your life and see how wonderful it could have been had you not been afraid to live it?
