My Favourite Travel Quotes

For as long as I can remember, I have found comfort in mantras. Lines that I could repeat to still my mind, excite my heart, and fuel my soul have marked chapters of my life. So when I left home and the life that I had curated and crafted, I depended quotes and mantras to help carry me across the threshold. So maybe these ones will inspire or validate your dreams as much as they have for me:

  • Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning. -Gloria Steinem
