There’s something so dreamy about the idea of traveling the world that makes us all want to put life on hold for a bit and escape reality. By jetting off to someplace you’ve never been before, you open yourself up to the unknown, where an endless amount of possibilities await your arrival — and that in itself is extremely tempting. If you constantly develop a passionate itch to travel, and cannot fathom the thought of remaining in one place for too long, this gem’s for you. Wherever your travels may take you, may your journey and the memories made along the way be nothing short of irreplaceable. Here are 40 Instagram captions for traveling, made for my fellow wanderers of the world who make it their life’s mission to explore new places and dream big.
