The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine
“I’ve been homesick for countries I’ve never been, and longed to be where I couldn’t be.” – John Cheever
“Wanderlust, the very strong or irresistible impulse to travel, is adopted untouched from the German, presumably because it couldn’t be improved upon. Workarounds like the French passion du voyage don’t quite capture the same meaning. Wanderlust is not a passion for travel exactly; it’s something more animal and more fickle – something more like lust. We don’t lust after very many things in life. We don’t need words like worklust or homemakinglust. But travel? Anatole Broyard put it perfect in his essay Being There: Travel is like adultery: ‘One is always tempted to be unfaithful to one’s own country. To have imagination is inevitably to be dissatisfied with where you live…in our wanderlust, we are lovers looking for consummation.’” – Elisabeth Eaves
“I heard an airplane passing overhead. I wished I was on it.” – Charles Bukowski
“Traveling is like flirting with life. It’s like saying, ‘I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.’” – Lisa St. Aubin de Teran
“Never did the world make a queen of a girl who hides in houses and dreams without traveling.” – Unknown
“I always wonder why birds choose to stay in the same place when they can fly anywhere on the earth, then I ask myself the same question.” – Harun Yahya
“You don’t choose the day you enter the world and you don’t chose the day you leave. It’s what you do in between that makes all the difference.” – Anita Septimus
“People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.” – St. Augustine
“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.” – Anaïs Nin
“Once in a while it really hits people that they don’t have to experience the world in the way they have been told to.” – Alan Keightley
“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” – Jack Kerouac
If you ever thought about chucking it all and moving to a place where the greenback goes farther, then nowdays there are still plenty of places where the slightly well-heeled can live comfortably without giving up an arm and a leg. You have the world available to you, and there are plenty of options for international exploration. If you have a skill that you can take with you overseas, like writing or design, or if you’re willing to teach English, work in a café, or become a tour guide, you’re in a good position to live in one of these inexpensive countries.
