The world makes my heart beat faster… it inspires me. So you’re going to hear a lot about my wanderlust on A Happy Adventure. With three little bubbas I am currently more of an armchair traveller than an actual explorer of this big wide world… but I love to write about the reasons my feet itch to discover new places.
I think that in every person there lies an explorer (you know, it doesn’t have to be about exploring the world, but I think that everyone has something that they want to learn more about, to discover and to explore) just itching to discover and learn and absorb.
Wanderlust seems to have inspired people for as long as the written word has existed … so instead of using my words to tell you why I think travelling and exploring and discovery are so important, I thought it would be a cool idea to use five of my favourite quotes (I had a lot of fun making the collages that accompany each quote!) that sum up my passion for travel.
(If you click on each image it will open it up much bigger in a new window.)
‘Life is either a daring adventure or nothing.’ – Helen Keller
‘The Palpability of Possibility is one of the most precious gifts travel can bestow. And the even greater wonder is the more you wander, the wider and deeper your sense of the planet’s possibilities – that is, of your possibilities on the planet – grows.’ – Don George
‘Travelling is almost like talking with men of other centuries.’ – Rene Descartes
‘Never did I think so much, exist so vividly, and experience so much as in the journeys I have taken.’ – Jean-Jacques Rousseau
‘Once you have flown, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards.’ – Leonardo da Vinci
So, tell me, does travel inspire you as it does me? If so, what is your favourite travel quote? …If not, what does make your heart beat faster??
