A Complete List Of Inspirational Travel Quotes

Posted: 08/31/2012 7:00 am

I was surfing the web procrastinating and avoiding all the work that I had to do when I suddenly came across a magical and unique rock formation. It was the kind of picture that makes you sit back in your chair and say "WOW!"

I remembered that very day that I had to see what was in this picture, it was the Stone Forrest in Madagascar. I moved to Eastern Africa and lived on the continent for four months and was finally able to see one of the most unique formations in the world.

This alone was inspiration and it forced me into thinking about visiting and seeing the Stone Forrest everyday until the flight was booked. I recently shared my personal favorite travel quotes via WanderingTrader.com and there was such a massive response to the post that I decided to compile a complete list of inspirational travel quotes to inspire you to travel the world.
