Inspirational Travel Quotes by Adventurous Women
Travel takes us out of our comfort zones. It forces us to learn hard lessons about ourselves and the world around us.

Early pioneers include Jeanne Baret who was the first woman in recorded history to circumnavigate the globe in the 1760s and Cheng I Sao who was born in 1775 and in her heyday commanded over 400 pirate ships. Let’s take a moment out to appreciate some words of wisdom as spoken by courageous trailblazing women.
