Why Travel

You ask, I say "Why Not!"

For me Travel is not a choice.
It rejuvenates mind, body and soul and in a way it's as essential as Oxygen.
Ok Ok so you won't die but then you won't be living life either.

Apparently I am not alone when it comes to talking so highly of Travel.
I knew you will ask for proof. Well that's exactly why I collected 20 + 1 of my favorite travel quotes below and paired them with my images from around the world.

Now I just hope that at least one of these will inspire and motivate you (and everyone else) to stop reading this and get up and start packing for your next travel adventure.

  5. I have never really had the opportunity or the money to travel. I feel lucky if we even get to go on vacation every once in a while. We might actually be able to take a vacation this year, if so, it will be our first one in six years! We still will not be able to afford to go anywhere anything exotic or extravagant, but getting out of town for a few days and enjoying a change of scenery will definitely be refreshing!
