Thursday #ThoughtsOnAPostcard Round-up
If you’ve ‘liked’ The Well-Travelled Postcard’s Facebook Page, then you might have seen my #ThoughtsOnAPostcard series that I’ve been posting once a week, on a Thursday, on Facebook. On the back of a postcard I’ve been posting some of my favourite travel quotes, some of the quotes that inspire me the most. There are plenty more to come, but I thought I’d give you a round-up of the last 10 quotes, in case you missed any of them.
“There’s a big world out there, it would be a shame not to experience it.” – JD Andrews
“Though the way is full of perils, and the goal is far out of sight, there is no road to which there is no end:do not despair.” – Hafiz
“…Begin to look at maps with the narcotic tingle of possibility.” – Rolf Potts
“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveller is unaware.” – Martin Buber
“Now more than ever do I realise that I will never be content with a sedentary life, that I will always be haunted by thoughts of a sun-drenched somewhere.” – Isabelle Eberhardt
“I just wish the world was twice as big and half of it was still unexplored.” – David Attenborough
“Even a miserable travel experience can make a great story. When things go awry, I remind myself, “This will be funny… eventually.” And I’ve found that most things are.” – Geraldine Deruiter
“All these places are permanent and yet are surrounded by transient life. They have a story of their own which reflects the depth of the human story, for they have read more of it than any of us.” – Dean Fischer
“Travel will make you appreciate the familiarity of home, it will restore your sense of childlike wonder for what was already there. And when you return, you will remember what it is to be truly alive again.” – Jessica Yurasek
“One of the gladdest moments of human life is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels at once more happy.” – Francis Bacon
