8 Great Travel Mantras to Make Your Own

By Charles McCool / McCool Travel

After conducting 95 interviews with amazing travel experts over the years, I have a nice collection of inspiring travel mantras. In each interview, I asked the travel expert for a travel mantra of eight words or less. (As you will see below, not every person abided by that requirement so I consider the “eight words” rule more of a guideline.) To get you excited about traveling this year, I selected a few great mantras that most make me want to jump out of my chair and see the world. I hope you feel the same.

Each travel mantra also links to the travel experts interview on McCool Travel and their principle website, so that you can read more about them and be further inspired. Happy travels!
