For many people traveling is not a top priority. It might be impossible because economic or health reasons. But for many it becomes an addiction or a way of living.
I will always remember my very first big trip . I was 18. I was traveling with a yellow backpack, heading to Paris for a week but my airline ticket was open for a year. It was a big ADVENTURE that changed my life. It pushed me to get out of my comfort zone. It made me wanted to know better my own country. It was something I needed to do at that time and I will be forever happy I did it.
I collected a few quotes on that topic and I want to share them with you. Some I like more than others.
