Lee’s Three: Quotes to Inspire Travel

October 7, 2017

In this edition of Lee’s Three, I highlight three of my favorite quotes to give you some travel inspiration. As I recently departed on my 9-month journey around Asia, I figured this was a fitting time to share these quotes. Hopefully these will help inspire you to take a trip you’ve been thinking about for some time.

Inspiration is a funny thing and we’re not always sure where it comes from. I understand quotes are a bit cheesy, but the little things in life often give us the extra push we need.

What are your favorite travel-related quotes? Leave your answers in the comment section below or talk to me on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook.

Lee’s Three (L3) features quick content highlighting helpful hints, surprising facts, or something enjoyable from my life.
