I love inspirational quotes.  Not surprisingly, one of more memorable gifts I’ve ever received is a daily calendar from my college roommate, each page containing a daily inspirational quote.  I think of it as chicken soup for the heart. I still fondly remember one of my favorite quotes, “Beyond the clouds.  Behind the rain.  There are a thousand rainbows”. 

With travel summer season around the corner, I decided to compile 50 of my favorite travel related quotes (and 3 general quotes).  I hope they inspire and stir your wanderlust.

10. “Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” – Anonymous
