‘Travel. The only thing you can buy that makes you richer.’

Ahh our adventurer souls love this one don’t we? How enriched have we been by fully immersing ourselves in places we’ve never been. Experiencing cultures we’ve never experienced.

We definitely come back richer.

‘Wander often. Wonder always.’

Always keep your mind open to wonder.

Wander often.

You don’t need to tell us twice!

‘The World is too big to tell just one story…’

It’s so easy to live in the same place, and see the same faces, and think your life is the only one that matters.

We need to experience other people’s lives, and cultures and see how they breathe…

Our story is not the only one, and we owe it to ourselves to listen to others.

‘The World is big, and I want to have a good look at it before it gets dark.’

I love this quote by John Muir.

It has an urgency to it, that we need to appreciate it all before it’s too late!

‘You will never be completely at home again, because part of your heart will always be elsewhere. That is the price you pay for the richness of loving and knowing people in more than one place.’

And I feel like our lives are better for it. That itchy footed feeling?

Loving other places and communities allows us to live as citizens of the World, and appreciate that every other human is too.

Let us keep our minds and hearts open and our feet itchy for more.

‘Not all classrooms have four walls’

As a parent, this is one of my all time favourite quotes, though it is definitely relevant for us all!

We learn more by living. Experiencing. Breathing the location, the culture and the history. Tasting the foods. Making the foods. Hearing the native language spoken.

You will learn so much through travel that no book could ever teach you.

‘Into the wild I go. Losing my way and finding my soul.’

‘Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing at all.’

Well now isn’t that the truth?

‘And if travel is like love, it is, in the end, mostly because it’s a heightened state of awareness. In which we are mindful, receptive, undimmed by familiarity and ready to be transformed. That is why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.’

A gloriously deep quote about how much travel really can change us.

‘We travel, not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.’
