I love these first three adventure quotes because they serve as a great reminder that adventure is also a matter of perspective and outlook. I could continue to work for money and be financially rich which would ultimately mean nothing. Speaking from experience, one of the reasons why I choose to live nomadically is because I want to live a life full of adventure. Sure, I could be earning 10x more compared to what I do now but would I really be happier? Every day, I wake up to a life full of spontaneity and I honestly wouldn’t have it any other way.

I have been traveling non-stop for almost three years now and while it hasn’t always been rainbows and butterflies, it has also allowed me to follow my true passion and calling in life. To write, to explore, and to inspire people along the way. I found my adventure in the oddest of places, deep in the sand dunes of Mu Nei, Vietnam when I met my partner Tom. Since then, it has been a rollercoaster ride of traversing through five continents and starting a business together.

Ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Here are the 20 most inspiring adventure quotes of all time to get you feeling inspired and alive.

When first deciding to take the big leap to travel or pursue something different, the same types of questions and trepidation fill our minds. What if I fail? What if I get into an accident? What if I end up hating it? Let me tell you one thing. Fear of the unknown is normal. It is perfectly normal to be scared, excited, and nervous all at the same time. As soon as you take the first big step, that is when you will be reminded that adventure is out there. That there are a million and one new things to see and discover and you are just getting started.

12.”One way to get the most out of life is to look upon it as an adventure.”Ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Here are the 20 most inspiring adventure quotes of all time to get you feeling inspired and alive.

The quote fill your life with adventures, not things is one of my all-time favorite adventure quotes. This simply sums up what I try to do in my life. Currently, everything I own fits into one 12kg backpack. While this idea may seem crazy to some, it works for me. I can go wherever the wind takes me, I have no physical ties to any place, and I can decide to travel and live wherever I want to. Despite my love for my nomadic lifestyle, I know that this isn’t for everyone. Some people can’t just pick up everything and go. But that is the beauty of travel. Whether you are going on a year long trip or even just a two week holiday, every experience is worthwhile and is worth celebrating.

A lot of my friends think I am crazy but I have honestly never been happier. I work, I travel, I meet amazing people, I get to immerse myself in different cultures and most of all, I grow. On a daily basis I challenge myself to learn new things, to broaden my perspective, and to experience a new way of life. This has ultimately shaped my view on the world and has helped me become a better person.

15.”Do more than just exist”

Ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Here are the 20 most inspiring adventure quotes of all time to get you feeling inspired and alive.

The first time I read the adventure quote above, I was immediately dumbfounded. Wow! It made me think of my life, what I was doing, and what I wanted to do. Coming from a third world country, I know by experience that travel is a privilege.  I worked hard for my degree, I hustle between one freelancing job to the next, and I work endlessly on this blog all because I want to keep doing what I do. I want to be more and do more. Most of all, I want to be happy. Since early on, I’ve figured out that traveling and going on adventures is what really makes me happy, I found a way to create a lifestyle so I can do what I love.

However, despite the fact that I promote and speak a lot about this lifestyle, I know that it isn’t for everybody. I know that some people have families or other obligations. Choosing a life of travel isn’t the only way to be happy. Nor am I saying that it’s the only way to live life. Everyone can choose their own adventure.

18. “Life is an adventure. Take risks.”

Ever feel like you're stuck in a rut? Here are the 20 most inspiring adventure quotes of all time to get you feeling inspired and alive.

One of the biggest risks that I took was starting this blog. After my partner and I met, we decided to start this because we wanted to stay connected to something that we loved, traveling. We both had jobs and I had just finished a master’s degree. However, we blindly took a leap and quit everything we knew to be normal and set off for a life of travel. Despite not knowing how to run a blog properly, nor how to make money along the way, we both just took this leap. Two and a half years later, we are still going. The bottom line is, take risks. Whether it is regarding your work or everyday life decisions.

    No Mark Twain?
    “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” – Mark Twain

  • michaelj72a

    nice collection, I enjoyed it! thanks, Anna.

    “Adventure is worthwhile” was said by Aesop, the greek fabulist/story teller and not Aristotle. you might want to correct that. apparently Amelia Earhart then added to that, and said “Adventure is worthwhile in itself”

    • Ohh thanks! It seems like the internet is unsure about who wrote it as there are conflicting info on both either aesop or aristotle @michaelj72a:disqus Will definitely try to do more research!

  • Love these quotes Anna, thank you so much for sharing. Every time I read one I just want to travel – which is the idea hey? Cheers for your great work and inspiration!
