It’s true. If you need an excuse to go wandering off around the world, this is it. Travelling truly does enrich your life. You meet new people, make new friends, discover new parts of the world, learn about new cultures, and all of them are memories you will carry through life with you. Spending your hard earned money on holidays and adventures is far better than flittering it away on other things.
I’m in love with places I have never been and people I have never met
It’s crazy isn’t it? How we can fall in love with places around the world, yet we have never been to so many of them. But why not? Personally, I know that I have come up with plenty of excuses before as to why I can’t get away but if you’re in love with somewhere, surely you should make the extra effort to see and experience it?
Which brings me on to the next travel quote, we always find excuses. Someone once told me that if we really want something, we will always find a way. If we don’t or are lazy, we will always find an excuse. Lack of time and money are the two biggest excuses why we don’t travel anywhere near as much. So with the help of mybudgetbreak, we want to get you living life to the full, even when money is limited.
Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a story teller
The famous Moroccan explorer Ibn Battuta once said this and he had a good point. The world is a beautiful place and when we see new things it’s great to just stop, stand still and take it all in. From the aromatic spices at the Jemaa el Fna market in Marrakech to the noisy hustle and bustle of New York’s Times Square, and to the enchanting Kathak dancing of northern India, whenever you travel, take time to take in everything that’s going on around you. When you return, your stories will both amaze and inspire others to do the same.
We were born to fly, that’s why planes were invented
Think about it. Humans weren’t born with wings, but the desire to travel and see the world quicker than sailing was so great, that the Wright brothers invented the ability for humans to fly. Now, there are more than 100,000 flights around the world every single day, each one taking explorers to destinations they have never been to and are about to discover.
For many, including myself, we like to escape the rat race, get away from it all and take a break when we travel, but in reality, it’s all about seeing what the rest of the world is up to. We get so caught up in our own little world, we forget how the rest of the world actually live and travelling is the perfect opportunity to experience other ways of life.
I have left my heart in so many places
Like most travelers, when I’ve visited somewhere new, I’ve fallen in love with the places and the people, to the point where I want to go back time and time again. But there are always new places to explore, and as you grow and learn about yourself, you begin to realise what you like, love and dream of doing.
Every horizon upon being reached reveals another beckoning in the distance
Which leads me on to this travel mantra. No matter how much you love a destination, there are always new places to discover. Whether you have been inspired by the people you’ve met and want to learn more, or are ready for your next big adventure, there will always be a craving to keep travelling.
This is one of my favourite travel quotes and is all about exploring the world with that special someone and doing it spontaneously. A dream for many but when you are seeing the world, it’s so much better when you have someone special to share it with.
Book it and just leave
I’m a big fan of spontaneity and this is the ultimate fantasy for many travelers, but it often comes down to fear, taking time off, money and/or many other factors. Wouldn’t it be great to do it, even just once in your life. I did it last year. Nowhere exotic, but I just needed a little escape and break from the daily grind. So one day I booked a flight to Portugal and flew out the next day. Just me on my own, exploring the southern Portuguese coastline with the added bonus of some beautiful Mediterranean sunshine. It turns out it was one of the best things I have done. The excitement of saying “what the hell”, and booking a spontaneous trip, is incredibly liberating.
