10 Travel Quotes Inspiring you to Travel

In your 20’s and 30’s, life can become challenging. At the age of 20, I still haven’t decided what to do with my life – whether it’s to study or work, I really don’t know. But something I do know, is that having the chance to travel and live in Paris solo has made me open my mind to so much more. I am finding myself interested in things I wouldn’t have even considered a few years ago. So to any of you who are like me, I encourage you to jump out of your comfort zone, pack a bag, move to a foreign country, and eat delicious food (you can thank me later on). You wont regret it.

Here are 10 of my favourite travel quotes to help inspire your travels:

“I am not the same having seen the moon shine on the other side of the World” – Mary Anne Radmacher

“As you move through this life..You leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life – and travel – leaves marks on you” – Anthony Bourdain

“Be a traveller, not a tourist. Try new things, meet new people, and look beyond what’s right in front of you. Those are the keys to understanding this amazing world we live in” – Andrew Zimmern

“There are two worlds: the world of the tourist and the world of everyone else. Often they’re side by side. But the tourist doesn’t actually see how people live” – Paul Theroux

“As you travel solo, being totally responsible for yourself, its inevitable that you will discover just how capable you are” – unknown

“Travel not to find yourself but to remember who you’ve been all along” – unknown

“The travel impulse is mental and physical curiosity. It’s a passion. And I can’t understand people who don’t want to travel.” – Paul Theroux

Travel Planning


As my departure is coming closer each week, I am dreaming of picturesque places to visit during August.

Flicking through the pages of my Lonely Planet travel guide for France, I am falling in love with so many places I didn’t even know exist.
Despite the fact I am going to be on a tight budget until I start work in the fall, I am determined to visit a few of these magical towns I have discovered.

#1 on my list being COLMAR

To me this town looks breath-taking. It may be a small town, but the architecture of the buildings is grasping my attention and making me want to go and photograph this marvellous place.

An ancient castle on an island in North-Western France, who wouldn’t want to visit this?

This castle looks like something of a fairytale. It is the largest Chateau in the Loire Valley and was built in the 16th Century.

Here you can visit Monet’s Garden, where he painted his famous painting of “Water lilies and the Japanese Bridge”.
