Travel quotes to be inspired by

I love a good inspirational quote. When I decided to move to New Zealand, there were a few times when I doubted myself and wondered whether I was doing the right thing. Fortunately, I have a bit of a Pinterest addiction and after pinning a few inspirational quotes, they became more and more prominent on my home feed and each one reminded me that life is too short to dwell on things like that and what’s the worst that could happen?

Anyway, I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you and see if you have any great ones that I’ve missed!
