INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES ABOUT TRAVEL FOR FAMILIES
There is something special about traveling that transforms you. It’s not until you are thrust into an unknown land that you truly discover who you are, what you stand for, and what you believe.
We’re asked a lot why we travel, and we believe these quotes give all the reasons we love to travel as a family.
Although these travel quotes may not be direct family travel quotes, they’ll inspire you to think about how traveling with your family can change your life.
You’ll be amazed by how traveling will shape/mold your kids.

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain”
“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.”
“I do not want to get to the end of my life and find that I just lived the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.“
“If we were meant to stay in one place we’d have roots instead of feet.“
“Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends”
“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life.”
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover”
