Travel Quotes I Dig

I am somewhat of a quote junkie, but I particularly love travel quotes. They remind me why traveling is important and they inspire me to do and see more. Some quotes make me thoughtful, some make me excited, and some make me stressed to go everywhere!! The quote that fits me best is “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” That’s me!

  1. JUST for traveling? What are you smoking?? There are a million and one things to say about traveling! It’s not like a Vegas trip! LOL.

    (although there are a MILLION things to say about those crazy weekends, so what am I talking about)

  2. I have a question, how do you travel without having the fear of some weird men creeping up to you? I have a problem with that but I’d love to go out on my own and explore go on adventures. Not much people like to do that nowadays. It’s just intimidating going out into the crazy world.
