These are the quotes that keep me wanderlusting. Some are just for travel and others can be used in a number of situations.
“Memories don’t collect dust.” -unknown. I think I might have made this one up myself.

Traveling can be scary. This is especially true if it’s to a place where you’ve heard many negative things about. But challenge those negative stories and find out for yourself. Don’t do anything that will put your life at risk. Life is precious. But do step outside your comfort zone. Nothing amazing happens to us in our comfort zones.
These quotes have helped me get through some sticking situations abroad. I hope they can help you too.
