Travel Quote Tuesday | Saint Augustine (Again)

It’s kind of comforting to know that we are still travelling today for some of the same things as were popular in the time of Saint Augustine, who lived in the 4th and 5th centuries CE.

While we love city breaks and cultural travel, Pete and I also enjoy experiencing the natural landscapes (and seascapes) of the world, especially where we can see native flora and fauna as well.

In exploring and learning more about the rest of the world, I believe we learn more about ourselves, and we develop our minds and beliefs too.

Another from Antarctica, such a beautiful and pristine expanse.

    Beautiful quote, this is a first time reading it for me but I can totally see why it’s so inspiring. Antarctica is one of those places we have to see soon! It looks and sounds so breathtaking from what I have been seeing!

    It really is amazing how a quote from someone who lived and traveled so long ago could be so relevant today. I love that! It’s also one I’ve never heard before, and I’m now curious to read more about his thoughts. And, of course, that pic is gorgeous!

    I love this quote and how something so old still holds true today! I’ve never read this one before. I’m a nature-lover, so I’m all about seeing those natural sites. Mountains and canyons are my favorites. Plus, rock formations. I can’t get enough of those. It’s easy to tell I’m a land-dweller.

    I’m impressed to hear a travel quote I haven’t come across yet – it really is incredible isn’t it, that travel and the need to explore, passion for discovery and new experiences is an intrinsic human trait which has been around since the very early ages.

    I love collecting travel quotes, have been squirreling them away for many years. And yes, loved thinking that people had much the same thoughts so many hundreds of years ago.

    So often, travel is about motion. But St Augustine’s quote reminds us to quiet ourselves and just experience nature.

    Just so. And to look at ourselves with the same wonder with which we look at the world.

    Yes people do travel around the world and sometimes fail to see the inner strengths and beauty and draw on those unique gifts and share it with the world

    Haven’t heard this quote before, given so many fly around online that’s pretty amazing. I’m left curious about Saint Augestine, think I have some googling to do!

    Beautiful quote. I think St Augustine had very good perspective on human nature! It’s a great travel quote – much more insightful and inspiring than some of the others that I have seen around lately.

    I find sitting by the ocean or resting by the side of a lake or mountain and just thinking give way to such creativity!
