Travel Quotes & Passages to Inspire Your Journey

Hey Gypsies! I'd like to share with you my collection of quotes and passages to inspire travel, fulfillment, wonder, new adventures, and fresh starts. A lot of these resonated with me during my own life transitions, and reading them now reinforces my gratitude for this amazing and exciting career I have on yachts & jets. <3


“Find life experiences and swallow them whole. Travel. Meet many people. Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. Try everything. Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life.”

Lawrence K. Fish

“Now more than ever do I realize that I will never be content with a sedentary life. That I will always be haunted by the thoughts of a sun-drenched elsewhere”

Isabelle Eberhardt

“I’m going to make everything around me beautiful.

That will be my life."

Elsie De Wolfe

“May you always have a beautiful soul with a fierce demeanor and a curiosity to know.”

High Poet’s Society

“Tell me, What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

Mary Oliver

“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.”

Mary Anne Radmacher

“Focus on the powerful euphoric, magical, synchronistic, beautiful parts of life, and the universe will keep giving them to you.”

Julia Molloy

“Don’t grow weary with your wonder.

For there are sunsets still to see,

Lands you must get lost in,

And other selves you’ll come to be.

Don’t grow weary with your wonder.

For this is just the opening act,

And if wonder’s what you search for

Wonder’s what you will attract

So when weary be your world

And darkness drags the daylight under

Turn your face up to the stars

And don’t go weary with your wonder”

E.H. (Erin Hanson) @thepoeticunderground


the best gift you could have given her was a life full of adventures.”

Lewis Carroll

“Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul parish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.

Ayn Rand

“You are the books you read, the films you watch, the music you listen to, the people you meet, the dreams you have, the conversations you engage in. You are the sound of the ocean, the breath of fresh air, the brightest light and the darkest corner. You are the collective of every experience you have had in your life. You are every single day. So drown yourself in a sea of knowledge and existence. Let the words run through your veins and the colors fill your mind”

Jac Vanek

"Your heart knows the way.

Run in that direction."


“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

Mark Twain

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.”

Jennifer Lee

“Blame if or praise it, there is no denying the wild horse in us.”

Virginia Woolf

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people just exist. That is all.”

Oscar Wilde

“There is freedom waiting for you, on the breezes of the sky, and you ask 'What if I fall?' Oh but my darling, what if you fly?”

E.H. (Erin Hanson) @thepoeticunderground

“I saw that my life was a vast, glowing, empty page and I could do anything I wanted.”

Jack Kerouac

“Though we travel the world over to find beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed. Embrace it with both arms. Hug it. Love it. And above all, become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good.”

Roald Dahl

“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch, we are going back from whence we came.”

John F. Kennedy

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living, I want to know what you ache for – and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing. It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.”

Oriah Mountain Dreamer

“The gladdest moment in human life is a departure into unknown lands.” 

Sir Richard Burton 

“For what it’s worth… it’s never too late, or in my case too early, to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit. Start whenever you want. You can change or stay the same. There are no rules to this thing. We can make the best of the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before, I hope you meet people who have a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you’re not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”

F. Scott Fitzgerald
