Best travel quotes

I have always loved reading philosophy, inspiring books and of course quotes. In my childhood days, I came across small booklets like  ‘P. S I love you Mom ‘ & ‘ father’s book of wisdom’  which I would always keep close to me. Post college, at my workplace too, I remember having subscribed to a service which would send me one quote a day. It made a lot of sense to start the day on a good quote,  given that I was in bank and it was going through change management then with all other kinds of quotes around 🙂

I still do love to read the words of wisdom, inspiring ideas and interesting thoughts which I can relate to.Here is a collection of a few of my favorite quotes on travel. Lets get inspired to travel and travel more… choose the one you can relate to and just book your ticket 🙂
