Thursday #ThoughtsOnAPostcard Round-up no.2

          Happy New Year! I can’t quite believe it’s already 2014… Last year absolutely flew by, but I hope you enjoyed 2013 and have lots of exciting travel plans in store for 2014? I am certainly getting exciting about various upcoming trips! For anyone who might need it, here is a dose of travel inspiration from some of the world’s greatest travellers.

          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. I did a round-up of the first 10, and here’s round-up no.2!

#ThoughtsOnAPostcard no.11

“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.” – Mark Twain

“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” – Robert Louis Stevenson

#ThoughtsOnAPostcard no.14

“The further you go, the more you learn.” – Christopher Columbus

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote, to travel is to live.” – Hans Christian Andersen

“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Marcel Proust
