We all wanderlusters feel the same. That desire to travel never stops but unfortunately not always it’s possible to go and explore the world. In any case, let’s inspire ourselves with some wanderlust quotes from writers and travelers around the world:

“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. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous

“Travel is never a matter of money but of courage. I spent a large part of my youth traveling the world as a hippie. And what money did I have then? None. I barely had enough to pay for my fare. But I still consider those to have been the best years of my youth. The great lessons I learned has been precisely those that my journeys had taught me.” – Paulo Coelho

Wanderlust quotes

“But wanderlust is like a pretty girl – you wake up one morning, find she’s grown old and decide that either you’re going to commit your life or you’re going to walk away.”
Charlie LeDuff

“Embrace your wanderlust and never stop traveling, keep discovering new places and meeting amazing people around the world. Many years from now, when you are not able to travel anymore, you will look back and with all those travel memories with you, I’m sure you won’t regret it.” – Joseba Umbelina

Travel quotes

“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” – Mark Jenkins

“To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.” – Bill Bryson

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other places, other lives, other souls.” ― Anais Nin

“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks – on your body or on your heart – are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.” – Anthony Bourdain

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller” – Ibn Battuta

“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.” – Randy Komisar

“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it’s lethal.” – Paulo Coelho
