Neil Gaiman
“Wherever you go, you take yourself with you.”
Neil Gaiman, The Graveyard Book

Cesare Pavese
“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends.
You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things: air, sleep, dreams, sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.”
Cesare Pavese

Robert Penn Warren
“For West is where we all plan to go some day. It is where you go when the land gives out and the old-field pines encroach. It is where you go when you get the letter saying: Flee, all is discovered. It is where you go when you look down at the blade in your hand and the blood on it. It is where you go when you are told that you are a bubble on the tide of empire. It is where you go when you hear that thar's gold in them-thar hills. It is where you go to grow up with the country. It is where you go to spend your old age. Or it is just where you go.”
Robert Penn Warren

John Steinbeck
“I saw in their eyes something I was to see over and over in every part of the nation- a burning desire to go, to move, to get under way, anyplace, away from any Here. They spoke quietly of how they wanted to go someday, to move about, free and unanchored, not toward something but away from something. I saw this look and heard this yearning everywhere in every states I visited. Nearly every American hungers to move.”
John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

Ryszard Kapuściński
“A journey, after all, neither begins in the instant we set out, nor ends when we have reached our door step once again. It starts much earlier and is really never over, because the film of memory continues running on inside of us long after we have come to a physical standstill. Indeed, there exists something like a contagion of travel, and the disease is essentially incurable.”
Ryszard Kapuściński, Travels with Herodotus

Paul Theroux
“Travel is glamorous only in retrospect.”
Paul Theroux

“If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.”
Anthony Bourdain, Medium Raw: A Bloody Valentine to the World of Food and the People Who Cook

Josh Gates, Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter

Paul Theroux, The Tao of Travel: Enlightenments from Lives on the Road

Bill Bryson
“It is not true that the English invented cricket as a way of making all other human endeavors look interesting and lively; that was merely an unintended side effect. ...It is the only sport that incorporates meal breaks. It is the only sport that shares its name with an insect. It is the only sport in which spectators burn as many calories as the players-more if they are moderately restless.”
Bill Bryson, In a Sunburned Country

Kate Douglas Wiggin
“There is a kind of magicness about going far away and then coming back all changed.”
Kate Douglas Wiggin, New Chronicles of Rebecca

J.A. Redmerski
“I wonder if the ocean smells different on the other side of the world.”
J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Never

“We can’t jump off bridges anymore because our iPhones will get ruined. We can’t take skinny dips in the ocean because there’s no service on the beach and adventures aren’t real unless they’re on Instagram. Technology has doomed the spontaneity of adventure and we’re helping destroy it every time we Google, check-in, and hashtag.”
Jeremy Glass

Dave Eggers
“Here I am Rock You Like a Hurricane.”
Dave Eggers, You Shall Know Our Velocity!

Bill Bryson
“It was the kind of pure, undiffused light that can only come from a really hot blue sky, the kind that makes even a concrete highway painful to behold and turns every distant reflective surface into a little glint of flame. Do you know how sometimes on very fine days the sun will shine with a particular intensity that makes the most mundane objects in the landscape glow with an unusual radiance, so that buildings and structures you normally pass without a glance suddenly become arresting, even beautiful? Well, they seem to have that light in Australia nearly all the time.”
Bill Bryson

Bill Bryson
“I turned to my own bunk and examined it with a kind of appalled fascination. If the mattress stains were anything to go by, a previous user had not so much suffered from incontinence as rejoiced in it. He had evidently included the pillow in his celebrations.”
Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods: Rediscovering America on the Appalachian Trail

Jack Kerouac
“...but I preferred reading the American landscape as we went along. Every bump, rise, and stretch in it mystified my longing.”
Jack Kerouac, On the Road

Susan Wiggs, The Charm School
