14 Photos to Make You Want to Get On the Next Flight Out of Here

Wanderlust, that feeling of wanting to pick up and just leave and go somewhere completely new and unknown is always with me. It’s that nagging little voice inside my head saying “Wouldn’t it be nice to be sitting on a beach somewhere right now? Wouldn’t it be so cool to be hiking through that mountain pass instead of staring at your computer monitor? Don’t you feel like you just NEED to be exploring that temple tomorrow?” Sometimes my inner travel addict whispers these things softly, sweet suggestions that make surviving each 12 hour work day a little bit easier. But when I see a picture taken from inside an airplane looking out at the world, it usually turns that harmless whisper into an immediate and deep-rooted wanting to get on the next flight away from wherever I happen to be at that moment. I imagine myself sitting next to the photographer behind that camera, and I can almost hear the engines whine in the background. So here are 14 of my own air travel photos paired with some of my (way too many to list all of them here) favourite travel quotes, that will inspire the wanderlust in you.

1. “If we were meant to stay in one place, we’d have roots instead of feet he said.” – Rachel Wolchin
