Travel & Hotspots

11 inspiring travel quotes

As I’m writing this, my tush is neatly parked on a chair on a wonderful balcony in the always divine Tuscany. The entire fam has flown in for my cousins Tuscan wedding, and I can tell you: my #OfficeForTheDay has never looked so good. Never. Ever. Nope. But I’ll get back to that in a thorough Tuscan Diary.

What I do want to discuss are inspiring travel quotes that will give you an instant urge to jet right off to Indoniesia, the Maldives, Mauritius, Los Angeles, perhaps make a detour in Tokyo even. Seriously though, it’s crazy what travel quotes can do to a person.
