  3. I love these, some I have heard before but a few I haven’t. My favourite one is the world is like a book and those who do not travel read only one page. I also like Michael Palin’s about the travel bug, as I keep telling everyone I have been bitten by the travel bug and I can’t get rid!!

I really believe that the more we travel the world, the more community we find. #6 is great too—every year, we make it a goal to visit a new country/place. Once you catch the travel bug…

  5. I love all these quotes, they are definitely inspirational and I love the photos that you paired them with. Definitely makes me want to travel more and go to more new places.
