Sharing is caring!

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Inspirational quotes with pictures must be worth a thousand words multiplied by a thousand. It’s true! My imagination zooms around the globe when I read these inspiring quotes paired up with photos. In this post I share ten of my favorite inspirational travel quotes about everyday life.

Quotes with a travel theme are something I collect and keep coming back to over the years.

Travel is rewarding, educational, challenging, humbling, exhilarating, frustrating, gratifying, scary, and rejuvenating. My biggest leap in self-confidence was a direct result my first solo traveling adventure to Southeast Asia in 1993. Growing older brings valuable life lessons but travel seems to accelerate the learning process.

I hope you enjoy these inspirational quotes and gain some flow and positive energy to your day.

Henry Miller speaks the truth here, seeing a new place, or opening our eyes to our current space brings fresh observations. Travel opens our eyes to new sights and our minds to new ideas.

A motivational quote that is so simple and so true! Sometimes we just need the courage to take the first step. This Dutch proverb could be the starting point of the #getoutside movement.

The older I get the more I appreciate my time outdoors exploring the hiking trails and spending time with nature. Sometimes you don’t feel like gathering your gear and getting outside. But if you can push yourself to just get out the door – you’ve got the hardest part of your journey done.

Neale Donald Walsch knows we need to stretch our boundaries in order to grow. Step outside your comfort zone and watch the magic begin! I know this is true for me. When I started my plans to live a nomadic lifestyle I had many doubts and unanswered questions.

The only way to find out how something will turn out is to actually get off your butt and do it! Even if you feel uncomfortable or scared to try. Think of it this way – the only failure is to not even try. If we fail to try then we truly fail.

Give yourself permission to get out of your comfort zone and see what it’s like. You’ll be amazed at the incredible things you succeed in accomplishing once you step out of that zone.

 

Inspirational quote: Life Begins at the end of your comfort zone
