Especially in those grey days of winter when being outside is a bit less effortless it is important to remember that travelling and looking for adventures is what can make your life so much happier. If it is by foot on a hiking trip, a weekend trip with your car or van or just a short walk through the park you never went toSo I gathered my personal favourite inspiring travel quotes to motivate you to go outside and experience something new now and then… And also to motivate myself to plan future adventures 😉

The one which motivates me the most is the last one. Mark Twain, that intelligent man. I would be glad to read more inspiring travel quotes. You can leave me your favourite or a new one in the comments and we can collect more motivating words together!

(8)  Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy. There’s a whole world out there, right outside your window. You’d be a fool to miss it. 🌿 Charlotte Eriksson

(9) Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime. 🌿 Mark Twain
