You might have noticed that I like quotes. In my studio and home I have little sayings everywhere – jotted on Post-it notes, stored in Evernote, written in journals, pinned to memo boards and let’s not go there with Pinterest.
Often customers ask me to suggest a quote for the front of their travel journal and I spend half an hour hunting high and low for some suggestions. So to make life easier, I decided to gather my favorite travel quotes in one place.
How could you use them?
- As inspiration when writing in your journal.
- As a note in a Bon Voyage or graduation card.
- As an embellishment on a scrapbook page.
- Stuck on the wall or refridgerator.
- Attached to a coin jar to save for your next vacation.
Note: the above pictures was taken 2 summers ago when we visited Highclere Castle (Downtown Abbey) – the gardens are just as beautiful as the house.
