I have always been a quote person. They’ve been a key component to high school papers, college admissions and even my resume. I find incredible value in just a few short words that speak to my intention. With that said, I wanted to share 10 travel quotes I recently came across that resonated with my wanderlust soul, and I guarantee they will make you seriously consider booking a flight.
As I write this I’m currently sitting on a plane headed to Charleston, South Carolina. I look around and see the variety of passengers, I can’t help but wonder what brought them here. Are they headed to a sunny respite on the Atlantic coast, gearing up for a business meeting, or just going home? Or is this a stop on their way to another adventure? This is something I always think about when I travel, and what makes airports incredibly exciting…to me. I know this may not be the case for everyone, but do you ever stop to think how lucky we are to have the opportunity to travel?
The privilege of meeting new people, trying different food and just opening our minds is worth its weight in gold.
And I want everyone to feel just as inspired as I do…so I hope these quotes speak to you in a new and meaningful way. ♥

Before I leave you, I must share my gratitude for discovering Uniqlo. They’re a Japanese LifeWear brand that believes in quality, longevity and comfort – which translates into the best apparel for travel. I have being wearing their Bocktech, Ultra Light Down and Denim for months and am excited to finally try their linen collection. This jumpsuit is less than $40 (budget travel style!) and layers incredibly well – perfect for multi-climate wear.
p.s. It would mean the world if you could pin the image below! ♥
