My Favourite Travel Quotes!

What travel quotes have inspired Don’t Stop Living to see all seven continents?

We all must get inspiration from somewhere and I for one love quotes, poems, lyrics and speeches. Things that people say that send out an inspirational message. Since I have never actually done a list of my favourite travel quotes before, I thought I’d get a few down, these come from anywhere and everywhere, just a current Top 20 that I thought of (I’ve probably left a few good top ones out, too):

1. “It’s a mad world.” – Gary Jules Featuring Michael Andrews.
