Words are powerful. In fact, nothing puts me in the mood to book a flight more than a good travel quote. It seems, though, that the same “wanderlust” quotes are recycled often. If I had a penny for every time I saw “Not all who wander are lost,” or “Keep Calm and Travel On” in my Pinterest feed, I would be able to pay for my entire round-the-world trip!

Wanderlust isn’t just described in a quote or two. It’s a way of life, and a state of mind.

So to celebrate some of those lesser-known travel quotes that fuel my wanderlust, here are 16 of my favorites to inspire you on your own journey.
