  1. My favorite quote is “Live, travel, adventure, bless, and don’t be sorry.” by Jack Kerouac. I travel to see new places but also to get away from some of my problems; things seem a lot more manageable after you experience the energy of a new place. My second one is “travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer”.

  2. My favorite quote is Danny Kaye’s “To Travel Is To Take A Journey Into Yourself”. I also love David Mitchelll’s “Travel Far Enough, You Meet Yourself”.
