A collection of quotes, articles, pictures, and videos that have inspired me to get off the couch and travel.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain
“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next, to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate. We travel to bring what little we can, in our ignorance and knowledge, to those parts of the globe whose riches are differently dispersed. And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again – to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more” – In a classic essay, Pico Iyer explores the reasons we leave our beliefs and certainties at home to see the world with open eyes.
“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine
