From gloriously happy family reunions at your favourite Highland timeshare escape, to romantic getaways alone with your loved one, holidays give us all moments to cherish.
But if, like us, you’re not quite as eloquent at putting these memories into words, then take it from some of the world’s greatest with our round-up of some of the best loved travel quotes of all time – from Buddha and Saint Augustine to one of Britain’s best loved globetrotters Michael Palin.
1) Saint Augustine: “The world is a book, and those who do not travel only read a page.”
2) Mary Ritter Beard: “Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”
3) John Steinbeck: “A journey is a person itself: no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of a struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.”
4) Buddha: “It is better to travel well than to arrive.”
5) Martin Yan: “People who do not travel cannot have a global view, all they see is what’s in front of them. Those people cannot accept new things because all they know is where they live.”
6) Gilbert K Chesterton: “The traveler sees what he sees, the tourist sees what he has come to see.”
7) Robert Louis Stephenson: “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
8) Aldous Huxley: “To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.”
9) Michael Palin: “I am not a great cook, I am not a great artist, but I love art, and I love food, so I am the perfect traveller.”
10) William Hazlitt: “You know more of a road having travelled it than by all the conjectures and descriptions in the world.”
