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
“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

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

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

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

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

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,

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

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.

Alberto Caeiro, The Collected Poems of Alberto Caeiro

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

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

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

“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

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

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

“As we travel through life, life will not only take us to unexpected places, but it will also take us to places that we already know.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“I belong up there, in the sky, travelling the universe in search of life, but for now, I will just have to be satisfied with a paw on the window, and memories of my past.”
Anthony T. Hincks

“Food is central to travelling and is a vivid entryway into another culture, but we do not have to literally leave home to “travel”. Movies, books, postcards, memories all take us, emotionally if not physically, to other places.”
Lucy M. Long, Culinary Tourism

“The basis of tourism is perception of otherness, of something being different from the usual.”
Lucy M. Long, Culinary Tourism

David C.   Moore
“A great journey, full of laughter, a few tears and lots of heart. It’s romantic and adventurous, amusing and understanding, a story to enjoy – Claire Ashton, Book”
David C. Moore

Charlotte Eriksson
“No more blurry memories of nights with strangers but still alone... I’d had enough of homeless travelling just to feed my art and I wanted stability and comfort; a calm sense of existence. I wanted a friend, a hand to hold, arms to fall asleep in.”
Charlotte Eriksson, Everything Changed When I Forgave Myself: growing up is a wonderful thing to do

Jack Vance
“I had contrived a method by which a transient might locate the best restaurant in town. He must find the local bookshop and take advice from the proprietor, who infallibly will possess this information. Why the bookshop? Because bookshop owners are usually discriminating gourmets without too much money.”
Jack Vance, This Is Me, Jack Vance!: Or, More Properly, This Is "I"

Italo Calvino
“- Viaggi per rivivere il tuo passato? - era a questo punto la domanda del Kan, che poteva anche essere formulata così: - Viaggi per ritrovare il tuo futuro?
E la risposta di Marco: - L'altrove è uno specchio in negativo. Il viaggiatore riconosce il poco che è suo, scoprendo il molto che non ha avuto e non avrà.”
Italo Calvino, Invisible Cities

Paolo Rumiz
“La Cortina di ferro lì a due passi
inquietava suo padre ma non lui
che nei cartelli con scritto STAATGRENZE
vedeva solo l’inizio di un mondo.
Semplicemente una linea che Dio
aveva disegnato sulla Terra
apposta perché lui l’oltrepassasse.”
Paolo Rumiz, La cotogna di Istanbul: Ballata per tre uomini e una donna
