travel and enjoy

Hi, Everyone!

When it comes to travel, I believe that we are used to taking it very seriously because of what we think it involves (finances, time, planning and more) but it doesn’t have to be so when you approach it differently. That’s why I am going to share with you, 3 travel quotes that have changed my perception and which my switch yours too!

To begin with, it will be great if you start seeing traveling within your actual country of residence just as good and refreshing as traveling abroad. This way, you are setting yourself up to worry less about planning or spending way more. You can deal with that when the urge to travel abroad comes, but what about the in-betweens? Won’t you then experience being “tourist-like” or “traveler-like” in a different region of your actual country of residence? That has got to change, and it surely will when you read these 3 quotes.


#1 Travel Quote

Dagobert D. Runes:“People travel to faraway places to watch in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.” This one right here, it’s by all means, my favorite. Simply because it reminds me of how we tend to overlook at things.

#2 Travel Quote

Unknown:”Travel to escape life, but so life doesn’t escape you”. Here is my second fav’ quote simply because it’s a great reminder. Life happens, and we all need to escape from it from times to times. It doesn’t have to be on the other side of the globe in case your time or finances aren’t on point. Everything big starts small. Escape nearby anyway.

#3 Travel Quote

Unknown: “Your wings already exist all you have to do is fly.” And that’s my third fav’ quote. Why are you not flying? Spread those wings wide enough and don’t feel stress out about not beeing in your fav place right now. Life will pass you by and guess who’s going to loose? Yup. You guessed right-> You!

    These were great (and inspiring) but I also love YOUR quote: “everything big starts small” — so important! Sometimes we just need to take the plunge and get started so we can have those big, great, experiences!
