Travel quotes are a collection of words of wisdom which gives one food for thought. For many people it can be the ultimate inspiration, that final ‘push’ to go out there and travel the world. I like to read quotes, but more specifically, travel quotes. Since I am travelling already, it gives me the motivation to keep travelling to see and explore the world. Since each travel quote gives a personal view, I have collected some that are very inspiring to me. As a travel photographer, I like to capture the world as I see it during my travels. A good quote goes well together with a beautiful photo.
