10 great travel mantras to live by every day

One of the things I love about travelling is that you don’t just get to see new places. Instead, you get to make amazing memories. Whether it be tasting exotic foods, diving in marine parks or just doing some sort of extraordinary activity, there’s something about travel that makes us a little braver, more relaxed and sometimes, even a completely new (and improved) person. But what happens when you get back from that trip? How do you feel?

Sure, you have all these wonderful memories but that spunky mojo you had a few days ago starts to die as soon as the monotony of everyday life sets in. You struggle to meet deadlines and rigidly stick to routines as you get bored and frustrated with life all over again.

It doesn’t have to be that way though! Those inspiring travel quotes that we think are only applicable when we pull out our passport shouldn’t have an expiry date. In fact, why can’t we live by those quotes every day? Fall in love with your city or town again. Go exploring. Find something magical in routines by changing it up and just live. To help you do that, here are 10 great travel mantras to help keep the wanderlust alive in your everyday life.

I'm Shalinee - a Geminian scientist who loves to travel, write, draw and eat chocolate. I've visited over twenty countries, published a Environmental Science encyclopaedia and somewhere along the way started a science communication company to help students and corporates translate that hard-to-read data generated in a lab. Other than that, I'm just searching for the magic still hidden in the world.
