Random Travel Quotes

I love to travel and I have re-discovered both the joys and the
headaches of road trips. I like to see new places, re-visit familiar spots, meet people, observe cultures and feel the distance. I am travelling at least three times between now and the end of the year, so it’s on my mind tonight. Here are a few quotes relating to travel:

I think that travel comes from some deep urge to see the world, like the urge that brings up a worm in an Irish bog to see the moon when it is full.
~Lord Dunsany

Wandering re-establishes the original harmony which once existed between man and the universe.
~Anatole France

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.
~Lao Tzu

The whole object of travel is not to set foot on foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land.
~G.K. Chesterton

And that's the wonderful thing about family travel: it provides you with experiences that will remain locked forever in the scar tissue of your mind.
~Dave Barry

I soon realized that no journey carries one far unless, as it extends into the world around us, it goes an equal distance into the world within.
~Lillian Smith
