Travel Quote of the Day:
"They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
With a pink hotel, a boutique and a swinging hot spot.
Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got, till it's gone.
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot"
- Joni Mitchell (Big Yellow Taxi) #TQotD http://j.mp/1A5tS3q

Travel Quote of the Day:

"Well, I shuffled through the city on the 4th of July, 
I had a firecracker waiting to blow.
Breakin' like a rocket who was makin' its way 
to the cities of Mexico.
Lived in an apartment out on Avenue A,
I had a tar-hut on the corner of 10th.
Had myself a lover who was finer than gold,
but I've been broken up and busted up since.

Love don't play any games with me
anymore like she did before.
The world won't wait, so I better shake
that thing right out there through the door.
Hell, I still love you, New York"

 - Ryan Adams (New York, New York) #TQotD http://j.mp/1Q9lm74

Travel Quote of the Day: "Well the Illinois Central and the Southern Central Freight, got to keep on pushin' mama, you know they're running late.  Without love, where would you be now? Well, the pistons keep on turning and the wheels go round and round. The steel rails are cold and hard. For the miles that they go down, without love, where would you be now?" - The Doobie Brothers (Long Train Running) #TQotD http://j.mp/1IoOtyL

Travel Quote of the Day: "She had to leave Los Angeles. She found it hard to say goodbye to her own best friend. She bought a clock on Hollywood blvd the day she left. It felt sad she had to get out" - X (Los Angeles) #TQotD http://j.mp/1GqYQDa

Travel Quote of the Day: "Riding along in my automobile, my baby beside me at the wheel. I stole a kiss at the turn of a mile, my curiosity runnin' wild. Crusin' and playin' the radio, with no particular place to go" - Chuck Berry (No Particular Place to Go) #TQotD http://j.mp/1MWUfsG

Travel Quote of the Day: ""The day since I met her,
I can't believe it's true.
She came here from Memphis
across the ocean sailing.
And I saw her and I pleaded,
why do you come so far?
And she said, 'trying to get to you,
how I tried to get you,
trying to get you'" - Pixies (Letter To Memphis) #TQotD http://j.mp/1F5a93R

Travel Quote of the Day: "The teachers I had growing up told me things about people and places to go.
But a lot of that talk was them repeating things about things that they didn’t even know.

I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna thank them for all of their help.
I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna find out those things for myself.

I’m from the East Coast. I’ve been here and there. But I still haven’t seen very much.
I know as I go and as old as I get there’s places I’ll never forget.

I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna go forth from cities and towns.
I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna travel. Even if I have to bum around.

The world’s getting smaller and smaller they say. Pretty soon it’ll all be the same.
But I hope that’s not true. There’s too much to do and a world like that just seems so lame.

I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna find what there is to find out.
I wanna travel. I wanna travel. I wanna travel. It’s about time I was busting out"

Travel Quote of the Day: "Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze. Well it's all right, if you live the life you please. Well it's all right, even if the sun don't shine. Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line" - The Traveling Wilburys (End of the Line) #TQotD http://j.mp/1yeH1WF

Travel Quote of the Day: "Traveling at night, the headlights were bright, but soon the sun came through the trees. Around the next bend, the flowers will send, the sweet scene of home in the breeze. Home sings me of sweet things, life there has its own wings. Fly over the mountains, though I'm standing still" - Karla Bonoff (Home) #TQotD http://j.mp/1GyreUc

Travel Quote of the Day: "I am the passenger, I stay under glass.  I look through my window so bright, I see the stars come out tonight.  I see the bright and hollow sky, over the city's ripped backsides and everything looks good tonight" - Iggy Pop (The Passenger) #TQotD http://j.mp/19iPopn

Travel Quote of the Day: "I've got a hard road to travel and a rough, rough way to go. Said, it's a hard road to travel and a rough, rough way to go. But I can't turn back, my heart is fixed, my mind's made up, I'll never stop, my faith will see me through" - Jimmy Cliff (Hard Road To Travel) #TQotD http://j.mp/1JYbjCc
