“Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends… The mind can never break off from the journey.”
If you travel, you’ll soon find you have itchy feet when you get home! There’s always something you missed, somewhere that’s still on the ever growing list and you don’t want to stop. Everything becomes an adventure, no matter how small.

What This Travel Quote Means To Me
This quote says to me that once you have travelled, it’s hard to stop. After my first gap year I realised how little I have seen of England and even Europe, so since being back I have been trying to see more of these areas that are on my doorstep. When you travel, you realise there’s so much more to see of the world. You talk to other travellers, swap travel stories and your ‘bucket list’ only ever grows in the end!
I know as soon as I get home from even the longest trip, it only takes a few days before I get itchy feet. I’m looking up places to go, looking over pictures, reading my travel books. My mind is always focusing on when the other half has time-off, where we can go and what we can do. There’s so much on the list! And it is always growing! I know I wouldn’t be so obsessed if I never did that first trip!
Even when I’m stuck at home for a few months, my mind doesn’t stay at home! It’s off thinking about where and when the next adventure will be!
