To adventures and beyond

My bucket list is packed not only with places I want to go to, live in, and pass by, but also with experiences I want to go through, with crazy things I want to do. I’m a big believer that travelling is a challenging and life changing experience, except if you’re a cold-hearted rock, then you’ll feel no change at all :D.


As my love for traveling grew, I collected a few quotes and sayings, and manage to make 10 of’em on my top motivational and inspirational list:

1. “The core of mans’ spirit comes from new experiences.” Christopher McCandless

2. “The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson

3. “No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.” – Lin Yutang

4. “One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” Henry Miller

5. “All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” – Martin Buber


6. “Tourists don’t know where they’ve been, travelers don’t know where they’re going.” – Paul Theroux

7. “A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving.” Lao Tzu

8. “If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion and avoid the people, you might better stay at home.” James Michener

9. “Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quiestest chambers. The mind can never break off from the journey.” – Pat Conroy

10. “Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” – Mark Jenkins
