Okay… so… I think I speak for us all when I say “I can’t believe we’re here.” I mean seriously, just 2 months ago I was celebrating my 2nd year in business, on a cruise I hosted in the Bahamas.
Now I’m adjusting to what I feel may be our “new” normal due to COVID-19. However, with following the social distancing and quarantining rules, I can’t help but to think I’m also not the only one whose wanderlust spirit is in dire need of refilling as well.
I decided that if I can’t go physically, I would travel mentally. I would create the reality I want, instead of the one starring me in my face currently. So to do this I looked to some of my favorite inspirational travel quotes, and NOPE I am not ashamed to admit it. The cheesy the better. Similar to affirmations, they have this way of resonating and encouraging you to take action. Even providing a little moment of clarity and truth hidden in the subtext.
Hopefully a look at some of my favorite travel quotes will help refill that void and remind you what is waiting on us when this is all over; or at least to the point where it’s safe to roam again.
