“There’s something about arriving in new cities, wandering empty streets with no destination. I will never lose the love for the arriving, but I'm born to leave.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Empty Roads & Broken Bottles: in search for The Great Perhaps

Roman Payne
“Cities were always like people, showing their varying personalities to the traveler. Depending on the city and on the traveler, there might begin a mutual love, or dislike, friendship, or enmity. Where one city will rise a certain individual to glory, it will destroy another who is not suited to its personality. Only through travel can we know where we belong or not, where we are loved and where we are rejected.”
Roman Payne, Cities & Countries

Charlotte Eriksson
“It doesn’t matter how many times you leave, it will always hurt to come back and remember what you once had and who you once were. Then it will hurt just as much to leave again, and so it goes over and over again.
Once you’ve started to leave, you will run your whole life.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Charlotte Eriksson
“You read and write and sing and experience, thinking that one day these things will build the character you admire to live as. You love and lose and bleed best you can, to the extreme, hoping that one day the world will read you like the poem you want to be.”
Charlotte Eriksson

Anthony Bourdain
“If I'm an advocate for anything, it's to move. As far as you can, as much as you can. Across the ocean, or simply across the river. The extent to which you can walk in someone else's shoes or at least eat their food, it's a plus for everybody.

Open your mind, get up off the couch, move.”
Anthony Bourdain

Roman Payne
“A person does not grow from the ground like a vine or a tree, one is not part of a plot of land. Mankind has legs so it can wander.”
Roman Payne, The Wanderess

Terry Pratchett
“The important thing about having lots of things to remember is that you’ve got to go somewhere afterwards where you can remember them, you see? You’ve got to stop. You haven’t really been anywhere until you’ve got back home.”
Terry Pratchett, The Light Fantastic

Richard Halliburton
“Let those who wish have their respectability- I wanted freedom, freedom to indulge in whatever caprice struck my fancy, freedom to search in the farthermost corners of the earth for the beautiful, the joyous, and the romantic.”
Richard Halliburton

Charlotte Eriksson
“I’m learning persistence and the closing of doors, the way the seasons come and go as I keep walking on these roads, back and forth, to find myself in new time zones, new arms with new phrases and new goals. And it hurts to become, hurts to find out about the poverty and gaps, the widow and the leavers. It hurts to accept that it hurts and it hurts to learn how easy it is for people to not need other people. Or how easy it is to need other people but that you can never build a home in someone’s arms because they will let go one day and you must build your own.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Another Vagabond Lost To Love: Berlin Stories on Leaving & Arriving

Amit Kalantri
“You need mountains, long staircases don't make good hikers.”
Amit Kalantri, Wealth of Words

E.A. Bucchianeri
“It was exciting to be off on a journey she had looked forward to for months. Oddly, the billowing diesel fumes of the airport did not smell like suffocating effluence, it assumed a peculiar pungent scent that morning, like the beginning of a new adventure, if an adventure could exude a fragrance.”
E.A. Bucchianeri, Brushstrokes of a Gadfly,

Mehmet Murat ildan
“Water is the most perfect traveller because when it travels it becomes the path itself!”
Mehmet Murat ildan

Ahmad Fuadi
“A couple who travel together, grow together.”
Ahmad Fuadi, Rantau 1 Muara

Ernesto Che Guevara
“All night, after the exhausting games of canasta, we would look over the immense sea, full of white-flecked and green reflections, the two of us leaning side by side on the railing, each of us far away, flying in his own aircraft to the stratospheric regions of his own dreams. There we understood that our vocation, our true vocation, was to move for eternity along the roads and seas of the world. Always curious, looking into everything that came before our eyes, sniffing out each corner but only ever faintly--not setting down roots in any land or staying long enough to see the substratum of things the outer limits would suffice.”
Ernesto Guevara, The Motorcycle Diaries: Notes on a Latin American Journey

Alberto Caeiro
“I’m in no hurry: the sun and the moon aren’t, either.
Nobody goes faster than the legs they have.
If where I want to go is far away, I’m not there in an instant.

(6/20/1919)”
Alberto Caeiro, The Collected Poems of Alberto Caeiro

Alexandre Dumas
“Voyager, c'est vivre dans toute la plénitude du mot; c'est oublier le passé et l'avenir pour le présent; c'est respirer à pleine poitrine, jouir de tout, s'emparer de la création comme d'une chose qui est sienne, c'est chercher dans la terre des mines d'or que personne n'a fouillées, dans l'air des merveilles que personne n'a vues, c'est passer après la foule et ramasser sous l'herbe les perles et les diamants qu'elle a pris, ignorante et insoucieuse qu'elle est, pour des flocons de neige et des gouttes de rosée. ”
Alexandre Dumas

Bill Plotkin
“... to wander far from the familiar "home" of his adolescent ways of belonging, doing, and being. He must, as poet Mary Oliver puts it, "stride deeper and deeper into the world." His culture will greatly influence the manner in which he wanders, as will his gender, physical constitution, psychological temperament, age, and bio-region. In one culture, his wandering might take him geographically far from his hometown or village. In another culture, geographic movement will have little importance for the true depth of his wandering. What is critical is not whether he engages in this practice or that, or undergoes this ritual or another, but that his wandering changes his relationship to the world, that he leaves the home of his adolescent identity, and that his border crossings usher him into the mysteries of nature and psyché.”
Bill Plotkin, Nature and the Human Soul: Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World

“We will all have an end to this journey one day, some will have a great ending some will have it bad, but it’s the journey that they take that matters, in the end.”
Zakariyya Sheikh

Dejan Stojanovic
“We traveled long and forgot why poetry was invented.”
Dejan Stojanovic

Ryszard Kapuściński
“Kusiło mnie, żeby zobaczyć, co jest dalej, po drugiej stronie. Zastanawiałem się, co się przeżywa, przechodząc granicę. Co się czuje? Co myśli? Musi to być moment wielkiej emocji, poruszenia, napięcia. Po tamtej stronie - jak jest? Na pewno - inaczej. Ale co znaczy to - inaczej? Jaki ma wygląd? Do czego jest podobne? A może jest niepodobne do niczego, co znam, a tym samym niepojęte, niewyobrażalne.”
Ryszard Kapuściński, Travels with Herodotus

Hiro Arikawa
“No other animal in the world would try to defy the laws of nature, but humans are a very peculiar species.” – Nana.”
Hiro Arikawa, The Travelling Cat Chronicles

Jason Rebello
“We were flying to Brisbane via Kuala Lumpur, a journey of around fifteen hours, including the brief transit stop. Australia was a long way from anywhere yet modern aviation had made travel so convenient and affordable that no one really thought of it as difficult or hazardous anymore. Today’s travel woes centered around overcoming jet lag or figuring out your duty-free limits. I tried to imagine life in the eighteenth century when the First Fleet made the long and arduous sea voyage from Great Britain. The aviation industry was non-existent at that time, steam-powered ships were still decades away and the sailing vessels that arrived in 1788 took over a hundred days to reach Sydney.”
Jason Rebello, Red Earth Diaries: A Migrant Couple's Backpacking Adventures in Australia

“Ever thought why not to be free? Ever what am I doing here? Ever imagined to leave behind this bitter reality and lost in search of deep meaning of life? The labyrinth to an Ambrosial and flavourful victory only be conquered if one Strives to hunt for it.”
Arindol Dey

Namrata Gupta
“I have been travelling alone for years now and I never needed any companion, but after meeting you, I don’t want to go anywhere alone.”
Namrata Gupta, The Full Circle

Matt Haig
“When you stay too long in a place, you forget just how big an expanse the world is. You get no sense of the length of those longitudes and latitudes. Just as, she supposed, it is hard to have a sense of the vastness inside any one person.”
Matt Haig, The Midnight Library

“Jobs fill your pockets, adventures fill your soul.”
Millennial Boss

Michael Bassey Johnson
“If you had the ability to time-travel to the future to see what you would become, would you still be doubtful?”
Michael Bassey Johnson, Before You Doubt Yourself: Pep Talks and other Crucial Discussions
