If you are searching for quotes about travel or quotes that will give you inspiration, look no further. From wanderlust quotes to wise words about life, these famous sayings have got you covered.
If you’re sitting around your bedroom staring at a map and crying over your unmarked bucket list; SNAP OUT OF IT! I know, I know, wanderlust hurts; it kind of eats away at your soul until you finally get the guts to do something about it.
Mustering up that guts though, it’s pretty darn hard. I mean, packing a suitcase and hitting the open road can be scary with all of those strangers out there, the possibility of getting lost and travel expenses that may leave you bankrupt.
Plus, with all of your bills, that job you don’t really like and your inability to plan, you couldn’t possibly jet off to live your dreams right?!
WRONG! Come on guys, what about all of those famous explorers? The ones who took expeditions across the country in canoes, hitchhiked to every destination, sailed a boat across the Pacific with no idea what they would find?
They were brave enough to satisfy their wanderlust during times when there weren’t smart phones with GPS, a way to call mom in case they needed money or even airplanes! Satisfying wanderlust, for many of them, meant the possibility of death or never returning home.
These famous explorers pulled it off though and what they discovered changed not only their lives but also the world. They found new countries, tribes of people, schools of thought and most importantly, themselves.
They were brave, didn’t make excuses and got out there into the world to see what it was all about.
They may be older than you (MUCH older than you,) lived during a completely different time and even talked a little funny, but these famous explorers can teach you a thing or two. We are always told to listen to our elders, and in this case, it’s probably a good idea.
