I just got back from a 5 months trip through Europe with my van and I’m already thinking about my next adventure. I don’t feel sad, but working on my desk with the same view every day isn’t that easy to go over. Therefore, I decided to create travel quotes to keep me motivated day after day.

I focused mainly on shorter quotes that have a big impact on your motivation and your decisions process. Few of them are stuck in my mind forever and I’ve truly embraced them until they became a way of thinking.

I will keep this post updated and regularly add new travel quotes to give you even more inspiration and motivation to follow your dreams.

Furthermore, each travel quote will be accompanied by a picture that you can save as wallpaper for your smartphone or to your Pinterest favorite boards.
