Why I love to travel and my top 20 travel quotes

My Love For Travel and Top 20 Travel Quotes

Travel is my passion.   It may have something to do with living on 3 different continents before I was 12.   I’m happiest when I travel.  The fact that I love to explore drives my passion.  Through travel, I see and try new things.  Stories are created with new meaningful experiences.   Travel makes me seek adventure and feel alive.   My photography is a way of capturing those stories and adventures creating memories that will live forever.  Below I list my top 20 travel quotes.  


I wanted to share some of my favorite travel quotes with you.  I hope they spark the sense of adventure in all of you.
