You know when you are heading on a holiday, writing in your journal or phone( more likely) and you think of travel quotes that aptly describe that very moment?

I am the same!

Although, I have to admit most times I am only doing it to post a caption on Instagram that I am too lazy to think of.

Moments like these, I realise how few resources exist to help me conquer my travel quotes desire.

Hence, I undertook the task of helping man(and women)kind find what they are looking for!

Here goes!
