Helen Keller once said, “Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” There is always a wanderlust in all of us, just waiting for the right time to surface. However, there may be times that itch cannot be scratched due to a number of reasons.
First and foremost is the budget. Let’s face it, one of the primary reasons why we hold our horses is because traveling is always equal to money. Lucky you if money is not an issue to you, but most of us knock on our wallets first before booking that economy seat at the cheapest airline available. Others might say that traveling need not be expensive, but it always better to be prepared financially and have a little to spare when going to another city or continent. Time is also an issue. Whether you are single or married, the schedule should always be taken into consideration first. You cannot just let that trigger-happy finger of yours to click on travel and booking dates. Social media, admit it or not, is also influential in inspiring and giving into your inner wanderlust. When we see amazing photos of the beach or the dreamy sunset by the garden, we instantly have that “need” for rest and relaxation. We quickly get hooked when we see photos captioned with travel quotes and sayings.
Ever wonder why millennials are fond of putting quotes as captions on their travel photos? Well, some of us aren’t gifted with words. Some of us find it difficult to express ourselves and spend countless hours looking for the perfect quote that we feel best suit the photo we want to post online. The many available websites and resources of quotes make many of us sound intelligent and well read. This doesn’t necessarily mean we are fooling people by making it appear we are smart, rather sometimes we struggle to find the words to best describe what we mean. Just don’t forget to give credit where credit is due.
Paired with a well-taken photo, your post can and will generate plenty of likes, which if you are an influencer is essential in gathering more followers. Travel bloggers, gifted as they are in putting words together, also use these motivational quotes to add more flavor and depth to their writing and entries.
Motivational travel quotes also remind us of the beauty of traveling and seeing the world. Immersing in cultures different from ours is useful not just for photos but for our well-being as well. Traveling, in a way, changes us, making us see how fortunate we are. It also sometimes reminds us of how good it feels to be alive.
So travel while you still can, don’t wait for the time when you can no longer enjoy traveling- may it be because you are too old or too weak to do so. May it be going solo or with a bunch of your friends, traveling is one way of celebrating life. Travel and celebrate life to the fullest.
