Our 7 most inspirational travel quotes

Be prepared: may cause uncontrollable wanderlust!

It may come as a shock to you to find out but … we think travel (particularly, TEFL) is massively inspiring. You’d never have guessed!

But it’s not only travel itself that floats our boat. We love an inspirational travel quote or two, as well. It’s just plain amazing how a few words can transport us back to our happiest memories from far-flung destinations or compel us to pack our bags and leave the monotony of everyday life behind us for a lifetime of action-packed adventure.

Here are our 7 most inspirational travel quotes. Disclaimer: we take no responsibility for flights booked or trips planned after reading these!
