20 Inspirational Travel Quotes to Live By

Updated: Apr 29, 2020

Travel quotes are forever, they are inspirational and motivational. I look forward to more travels, finding more meaning in life and experiencing every journey, every destination and every person I meet. My motivation for travel or yours may not always be the same. Sometimes we travel for relaxation, sometimes for adventure, sometimes for business, and most of the time for me it is to find solitude, find myself, find my rhythm as well as commune with nature or connect with people.


These are some of my favorite travel quotes that came from anonymous people or even unknown, still they make me want to travel more:

Leave footprints of love and kindness wherever you go.

Amanpulo, sweetlifemaggie

Sky above, sand below, peace within.

Never give up, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.

I’ll have a side of beach with my morning coffee.

I wish that Beach Therapy was covered by my Health Insurance.

How to have a beach body: 1. Have a body 2. Go to the beach!

Sandy toes. Sun-kissed nose.

Beachology. Be shore of yourself. Don’t be crabby. Let the worries drift away. Drown out peer pressure. Soak up positive energy. Seas life’s moments.


As the ocean is never full of water, so is the heart never full of love.

And here are from famous writers and personalities who thought of travel as meaningful and inspiring:

El Nido, Palawan

A journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step.” – Lao Tzu

When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused. —Rainer Maria Rilke
