Do you know of anyone who hasn’t been touched by the power of an inspirational quote? By the wisdom of accumulated experience expressed in crisp, evocative words that make you nod your head in silent agreement or laugh out loud in delight? 

Like many of you, I am a collector of that wisdom. Of the power of a single sentence to evoke emotions way better than a thousand word article by a lesser writer. I use them as crutches to emphasise a theme or an emotion. To describe a photograph, a scene, a memory so special that they need more eloquence than I can muster. 

For this series I have paired my favourite travel quotes with some of my favourite images to inspire you and nudge your inner travel dreams onto the road.

Say hello to wanderlust!

RICHARD FRANCIS BURTON

“Of the gladdest moments in human life, methinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of Habit, the leaden weight of Routine, the cloak of many Cares and the slavery of Civilization, man feels once more happy.”

  1. Brilliant idea. I love it! Just to clarify the quote about once a year going to some place you have never been before – does it have to be a country we have never visited before or it can be a new place in a familiar country?
