These adventure quotes are meant to fill your heart with wanderlust and mind with future trips. No matter where you turn, adventure awaits.

When I think of adventure, THIS is the kind of travel that comes to mind…

When I say I want to travel, I don’t mean I want to stay at fancy resorts or buy key chains from souvenir shops. When I say I want to travel, I mean I want to explore another place and become part of it. I want to discover coffee shops and hidden trails. I want to hike in the forest and walk along quiet beaches. I want my mind to be in constant awe of the beauty of this world. I want to see things with new eyes. I want to look at the map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I have been, the people I’ve met, and the things I have seen. This, I think, is at the heart of adventure, and that is exactly why I plan on making my life one.


Although traveling the state, country, and world offer amazing adventure, take a lesson from your childhood.

You can be adventurous right where you are in any given moment, right in the here and now.

Have you ever really watched a child play and observed how they move from one thing to the next, somehow simultaneously totally absorbed in the moment and yet eyes wide open for the next adventure? Everything they come into contact with has joyful potential and they don’t want to miss any of it.

Take a break and look around. What sparks your interest or has some untapped potential that excites you?

In every corner of your life, adventure is waiting. Hopefully, these positive quotes about adventure will spark wanderlust and a little joy in your everyday life.
