Favorite Travel Quotes: Part III

I sometimes wonder what I would do if I couldn’t travel. If I couldn’t look forward to the next journey. If I couldn’t get excited about experiencing some new, fantastic place somewhere in the near future.

Right now all travel plans are on hold until other life affairs work themselves out. In the meantime I’m devastated and trying to appease the yearning with reminiscing, books and magazines, image collections, and hopefully a return to scrapbooking some of the recent adventures. This nostalgia has inspired a new round of travel quotes, beautiful and painful.
