My Travel Inspirations

Maybe I was really born to be a traveler. Ever since I was a kid, I love the thought of going to unfamiliar places to see new landscapes. The idea of fitting in all my clothes in a small backpack every summer vacation thrills me a lot. Whenever possible, I choose adventure. And when there is none, I choose to create my own. 

Below are some of my favorite quotations from various sources. Reading travel quotations has been one of my favorite past times and probably one of the reasons why I don’t want to just settle down in one place. Read on…but I can’t promise that you won’t be infected by the travel bug. ^_^
