15 Travel Quotes that Inspire me

One of my favourite travel quotes reads, travel is the only thing you spend money on that makes you richer. I have loved this quote for as long as I can remember, it truly resonated with me as it has been my personal experience. When I speak of riches, it’s not in gold but in personal growth through exposure to various cultures.

Regular readers of A July Dreamer know I often incorporate travel quotes in most of my travel related posts. I find it amusing that most travel quotes I find have a deeper meaning and are so relatable to me. It is because of this that I decided I would share some of my most used as well-loved quotes about travel. We all get motivation from different places, some of us it’s through life quotes that resonate.
