Travel quotes that will inspire you to pack your bags and travel to the unknown

We all love to travel, don't we? We are sure that if you were offered a free plane ticket to another continent right now, you would surely say yes. Because travel is an instinct that has accompanied humans since the beginning of their existence. The exotic, the unknown, that which seems new to our eyes, captivates us, and these impulses make us wander further and further afield. Nowadays we have many more opportunities to travel than in earlier times, and of course with much more security; but we also have obligations that can prevent us from the dream of travelling, such as work, children, debts or lack of money. With these travel quotes, we want to motivate you to pack your bags and plan the trip you've always wanted to take, put aside the excuses and make the decision you've been putting off for some trivial reason.Here we present you with five travel quotes in different languages that you can practice reading while encouraging you to leave your comfort zone behind.
