Travel has always been a big part of my life.

So here are 20 of my favorite quotes about travel, and hopefully they’ll inspire you to grab your passport and explore first-hand what the world has to offer.

And we travel, in essence, to become young fools again- to slow time down and get taken in, and fall in love once more.” – Pico Iyer
