  • If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.

  • I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.
  • Direction is more important than speed.
  • Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.
  • 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.
  • To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
  • Instead of trying to make your life perfect, give yourself the freedom to make it an adventure, and go ever upward.
  • The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.
    – Oprah Winfrey
  • It’s funny. When you leave your home and wander really far, you always think, ‘I want to go home.’ But then you come home, and of course it’s not the same. You can’t live with it, you can’t live away from it. And it seems like from then on there’s always this yearning for someplace that doesn’t exist. I felt that. Still do. I’m never completely at home anywhere.
  • If you think adventure us dangerous, try routine; it’s lethal.
  • If you can’t live longer, live deeper.

Books about Travel, Motivation and #wanderlust

This list of adventurous quotes is by far not the final list.

There are many books out there that share incredible travel stories, tips and tricks on adventure, traveling solo, and kicking it!

I want to share a few of the great books I find inspiring.

I am sure some of them can be a great travel-motivation-boost for you.

1. A Thousand New Beginnings: Tales of Solo Female Travel Through Southeast Asia

This is the story of a 26-year-old girl who left her old life with a steady job and boyfriend behind in order to travel through Southeast Asia completely on her own.

Over the course of the next year and thousands of miles, hundreds of new beginnings and new friendships, she found that more than traveling the world outside, she traveled the world within. This book is a collection of excerpts from her diary and blog during that time in which she found that traveling alone made all the difference in the world.

2. Girls Who Travel

A hilarious, deftly written debut novel about a woman whose wanderlust is about to show her that sometimes you don’t have to travel very far to become the person you want to be…

There are many reasons women shouldn’t travel alone.

But as foul-mouthed, sweet-toothed Kika Shores knows, there are many more reasons why they should.

After all, most women want a lot more out of life than just having fun.

Kika, for one, wants to experience the world.

3. Not Afraid of the Fall: 114 Days Through 38 Cities in 15 Countries

After purchasing one-way flights from New York City to Paris, Kyle James and his girlfriend Ashley quit their day jobs, planned futures, and daily paradigms to see as much of the world as they could.

In 114 days, they trekked across 15 countries and 38 cities with nothing but their backpacks, their smartphones, and each other.

Not Afraid of the Fall is the unvarnished story of their off-the-cuff journey: from cliff-jumping off Croatia’s untouched coasts, to bathing with rescued elephants in Thailand; from crashing mopeds on gravelly mountain roads in Santorini, to hitchhiking with strangers in rental cars in Hungary.

4. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life

In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be “positive” all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. “F**k positivity,” Mark Manson says. “Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it.” In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.
