All the motivation you need to follow your travel and adventure dreams!
I have a confession.
I’m a sucker for a good inspirational travel quote. I’ve been known to stay up later than necessary, scrolling through Pinterest with “explore quotes” and “chase dreams quotes” in the search field.
I like silly motivational quotes, and boy does it feel good to get that off my chest.
I guess my obsession with quotes started during those good ol’ AOL Instant Messenger days (remember AIM, guys?). I’d pick the cheesiest one to put in my perfectly designed profile (#lylas), and another, perhaps sassier one for the almighty away message. Cool kid? Why, yes I was.
But nowadays, quotes have taken on a different role. As I enter this crazy travel blogging and writing world, I’m on a nonstop hunt for motivation, especially at night when all the things I didn’t get to during the work day swim through my head.
If you’re feeling beat down and need a little pick me up, here are some of my all-time favorite travel, adventure and inspirational quotes to keep you going. And don’t worry, your love for cheesy travel quotes is safe with me.
