Short Travel Quotes to spark wanderlust

short travel quotes

What is it with everyone looking for short travel quotes recently? Whether people search for quotes for inspiration to get up and start their own journey; or whether it’s to send to a friend to encourage them.

These days in the social network era, there are quotes about everything:

Travel. Eating. Dating. Self love.

In a way that’s good because people are searching for quotes to give them the inspirational boost they probably need. Quotes normally only get created as a way to show how something made you feel, and the chance of someone making a negative quote is much, much lower than someone making a positive quote.

I know that when I first started wanting to travel the world, many people around me told me “You shouldn’t” “It’s not safe” & “why do you want to leave home?”.

That’s when I started to look at other people’s reasons for travelling, the good, the bad and the ugly. Then of course amongst those stories were .. short travel quotes.

Check out some other posts on my blog:


Why do people like motivational short travel quotes?

“Humans are primal”. This could be one of the main reasons that people love quotes and words of inspiration. There have been countless tests and research projects that have concluded that words of encouragement are much more effective in progress than criticism – even the constructive kind. This is why so many people like reading positive and motivational quotes about things they enjoy or are hoping to enjoy in the future.

It goes deeper than you might think. Motivational phrases can actually help to rewire a person’s brain to think more positively.


Social Media has increased the need for short quotes

Everyone knows somebody that uses Facebook, Instagram or TikTok. The general cycle happens where a photo is taken, it is then uploaded to their feed, and they will want a creative phrase to match that picture-perfect post.

It’s a gradual process that grew as the social networks gained popularity and everyone wanted to show off how exciting their own life is. This is great and I’m so pleased to see people out here living their best lives, but it’s getting harder to pick an appropriate phrase to match each photo!
