Lately, I’ve been coming across so many wonderful travel quotes online. Just reading some of them fills my heart with joy as I can feel the sense of adventure and wonderment within me. They inspire me to go out and live my life unapologetically. I thought I would share some of my favorites with you all, check them out below and inspire the adventure seeker within.

5 Travel Quotes to Make You Feel Adventurous

“To live will be an awfully big adventure.” – Peter Pan

This quote is from the movie, Hook starring Robin Williams. This line was changed from the original, “to die will be an awfully big adventure” written by J.M. Barrie. I love this changed version as it adds a sense of wonder and excitement to the beauty of life. To truly live will be quite an adventure…

“In the end we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” – Lewis Carroll

This wonderful quote was written by Lewis Carroll, but it is actually incomplete. The full quote reads, “In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take, relationships we were afraid to have and the decisions we waited too long to make.” I think the cropped version is quite fitting, not only to travelers and adventurers, but to everyone. Don’t let your life pass you by, do things that scare you, make wonderful memories, and have no regrets.

“What is life but one grand adventure.”

This adventure quote seems to be from an unknown author. After some research, I found it scattered all over Pinterest & Tumblr, but without the original writer. Regardless of who this person was, they said something great that we can relate to. Life definitely is an adventure, with all of its ups & downs. It is left to us to transform this adventure of life into something completely amazing and grand. Just this thought alone makes me want to get out there and go!

“Seek adventures that open your mind.”

This is more of a general saying which not only makes a great travel quote, but a bit of advice to follow. Always seek adventures, and it’s all the better if they open / broaden your mind. Find yourself through your exploration of the world.

“Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures.” – Lovelle Drachman

Again, another beautiful saying to think about. Be curious in life and unafraid of trying new things. Don’t push your curiosity of certain experiences away, embrace it.

    These are great! This is my favorite quote that I came across when I did Inspiration Travel Quotes,

    “Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”― Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky
