Funny Travel Quotes (That Are Laughably Relatable)

I didn’t intend to write a list of funny travel quotes today. 

You see, I was looking up Robin Williams on travel and Google Images gave me the best results I could ask for: giant Mrs. Doubtfire sipping cups available for sale.

The Internet is a strange and wonderful thing.

For some reason, I started to remember the comedy gold of Robin Williams and proceeded to laugh like no one was watching.

Mostly because no one was watching.

I didn’t want the laughter to stop so I spent the better part of my morning compiling this list of funny travel quotes. Let’s take a look at them, shall we?
