Friends Traveling Quotes

This list of friends traveling quotes was so fun to put together.  I love how each of these friends traveling quotes has such a great, special meaning.   Matter of fact, I find myself thinking of some of my very best friends when I read these traveling friends quotes.

For some of these travel with friends captions, I have just listed the quote.  For others, I took the opportunity to tell a little story about us and let you in on what this quote means to Marty and me.  I hope you enjoy this list of travel quotes, friends!

these friends traveling quotes are so great

1.  “Friends that travel together, stay together.” -Unknown

I mean, how true is this one?  As I explained above, travel has brought Marty and I closer than ever.  We just love checking items off of our couple’s bucket list in order to deeper our connection and memories even more.

2. “A good friend always listens to your adventures, a best friend makes them with you.” -Unknown

Hands down, enough said.  I know I can think of only a small list of people that have done this with me.  I guess those people are truly my best friends.

3.  “There is an unspoken bond you create with the friends you travel with.” -Kristen Sarah

I know that this is so true for a fact!  I know we will never forget our first trip to Europe where we toured Italy and France.  It was such an amazing adventure.  And although there were some bumps along the way, we laugh about those bumps today!

4.  “As soon as I saw you, I knew that a grand adventure was about to happen.” -Winnie the Pooh

I bet you all have a friend like this!  I know for sure that Marty is that person for me.  Our first date was an adventure in itself.  LOL!  Since then we have marked on so many adventures, many of which I haven’t even written about on here.  Even if we are close to home, exploring Dallas-Fort Worth, we still try to make every day a fabulous adventure.

5.  “Never go on trips with anyone you do not love.” -Ernest Hemingway

This is totally true.  Trips are one of the greatest joys in life, so you definitely don’t want to ruin your time away.  Start by igniting the travel spirit by doing one of our stay at home date ideas.

6.  “You can pack for every occasion, but a good friend will always be the best thing you could ever bring.” -Unknown

And if you and best friend would like to learn to pack light on your trips as we do, then consider traveling with only a backpack.

7.  “It doesn’t matter where you are going, it is who you have beside you.” -Unknown

I believe this is true not only in travel but in life in general.

8.  “At the end of the day, your feet should be dirty, your hair messy and your eyes sparkling.” -Shanti

This is so so very true.  What fun is life if you are just going through the motions?  We need to feel alive and energized, and travel helps to provide that to us.

9.  “True friends will always push you towards the great possibilities of your future, false friends will always chain you to the mistakes in your past.”          –  Seth Brown

10.  “The more I travel the more I realized fear makes strangers of people who should be friends.” -Shirley MacLaine

I don’t know about you guys, but we have made some amazing friends when traveling, some of which we still keep in contact with today.  Our travel social media accounts, especially our Instagram account has also connected us with so many like-minded people that love to travel.

11.  “Wherever it is you may be, it is your friends who make your world.” – Chris Bradford

12.  “We all start as strangers.” -Unknown

13.  “There are no strangers in the world, only friends I haven’t met yet.” -Unknown

Marty will tell you that I am notorious for meeting strangers along our journeys and turning them into friends.  One of my favorite memories of Ireland is when we were on a food tour in Dublin.  We started talking with some of our fellow tourists and wound up spending the rest of the afternoon and evening with them.  I am still connected with them on Facebook to this day!

14.  “Quit your job, buy a ticket, get a tan, fall in love, never return.” -Island Company

15.  “Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.” -Frank Herbert

16.  “A journey is best measured in friends rather than miles.” -Tim Cahill

friends traveling quotes

17.  “As with any journey, who you travel with is more important than the destination.” -Unknown

Again, a quote that is focusing more on the relationships we make with people through traveling rather than the destination itself.

18.  “Life is like a camera: you focus on what is important, capture the good times, develop from the negative and if things do not work out, take another shot.”  -Unknown

I really love this quote.  I try to bring positivity into all things, so this one really resonates with me.

19.   “I don’t know the question, but travel is definitely the answer.” -Unknown

Travel is always the answer in my opinion.  It doesn’t matter if you are escaping to the mountains like we did in Estes Park, CO, or if you are going to go be a beach bum in the Riviera Maya, travel is the answer for it all!

20.  “Traveling in the company of those we love is home in motion.” -Leigh Hunt

How true are these friends traveling quotes?  No matter where you are in the world, if you are with a best friend or a loved one, that is home!

21.  “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”  -Unknown

I don’t think anyone ever looks back and regrets the things they did, only the things they haven’t done.

22.  “When traveling life’s journey, it’s good to have a friend’s hand to hold on to.” -Unknown

Man, I know I would not want to imagine this life without my friends and loved ones!

23.  “We take photos as a return ticket to a moment otherwise gone.” -Katie Thurmes

I love this quote so much.  Generally speaking, photos are our souvenirs.  I find myself looking at them time and time again, especially our photos from Capri, Italy.

25.  “Wanderlust isn’t about running away from it all.  It’s about experiencing the outside to discover the inside.” -Unknown

29.  “The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the memories we’ve made along the way.” -Unknown

Like I said before, I don’t think people regret not having certain things in their life.  I think in the end, our true regret is that we didn’t experience or see all of the things we wanted to.  Don’t let that happen to you!  Go and live your life!

30.  “It was us against the world.” -Burnell Glanzer

31.  “In life, it is not where you go, but who you travel with.” -Charles M. Schultz

If I listened to people around me, I would never have left home.  LOL!.  I remember when Marty and I were planning our trip to London, a terrorist attack had just happened days before we were set to leave.  Some of my family members begged us not to go because of this, but we went anyway. Marty and I choose to live our life to the fullest at all times.  I hope you do also!

33.  “There is a whole world out there.  Pack your bags, your best friend, and go!” -Unknown

34.  “Sometimes all you need is a great friend and a tank of gas.” -Thelma and Louise

Who hasn’t taken off on a road trip just to get away?  I know we tour our home state of Texas all the time on a tank of gas and no particular destination.  Matter of fact, we even have a list of Texas road trips that we love.  We have also been known to fill the car up and do one of our many day trips from Dallas.  Road trips are truly a different experience.

So many of these quotes about traveling with friends remind me of stories.  This one reminds me of the time that Marty and I were exploring the castles of the Rhine in Germany. 

We were lost trying to find one of the castles.  I saw a man outside with his toddler-aged son washing his car.  We were trying to ask for directions but the language barrier was prohibiting us. We showed him a picture of the castle.  He stopped what he was doing, loaded us up in his car and drove us to the castle. 

How amazing was that?!  The people of Germany were truly so amazing and kind!
