    My favorite quote from this is number 5. Every time I’m on the search for something, I ALWAYS end up lost, but find something much better along the way. The best example of that was when I ended up at THE WRONG kind of beach… LOL

    Great quotes. I love traveling, sometime’s I wish I could drop everything and just go out exploring the world. Then I realize I’m broke and it can’t happen, hehe

    I love 6 and 8 on your list. My favourite however, is the quote by St. Agustine: “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”

    I am not much of a traveller, and although I have made extensive business trips, it was not until I had a companion that I started exploring the city I went to. It turns out that my happiness comes from being able to share it with other people.

    From the list of quotes, if I had to pick the best one for me, it is:

    “If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay home.” – James Michener

    Because it is so true. When I started exploring, that is when I discovered how much there is to absorb and appreciate wherever I am.

    Being a traveler is awesome and if you find a career in it, its even better. There is no turning back. Here is another quote, “if traveling was free, you’d never see me again”.

    Nice collection of quotes. Numbers 1, 3 and 8 struck home for me.

    I just love this first so much. “There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” – Robert Louis Stevenson
    Sure the others are great and it is true that travel makes us wiser. Personally, I have not been able to travel nearly enough and I know that I have so much to gain.

    I like this one the best: “A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.” – Moslih Eddin Saadi . I love to get to know the people around me and their lives and get to explore the local culture.

    My favorite quote is number 1. It is very common for people to use the statement “Foreign Land” when in fact it is the traveler who is. 😀
    And number 10 just made me smile.

    My favourite is number one because it is true, once the lands were joined as one and separated over time due to climate change. We were all together once

    “We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” – Anonymous
    This quote is so wise. There are many people out there who use vacation and traveling as an escape from their routine. The truth is that whoever does that, it’s only a temporary cover-up till we go back to our hometown. Traveling has to teach us a lot about the diversity of different civilizations and how all this beauty is on our wonderful planet Earth. Thank you for those brilliant quotes!
