Who doesn’t love a good laugh from puns and passive-aggressive remarks? This funny travel quotes will surely crack your nuts!
At first, I thought, is there anything funny about travel? Well, apparently, I’m wrong, and there are tons! While compiling this list, I couldn’t help myself but chuckle a little. Seriously, it was so easy to look for travel quotes because there are so many famous people, and notable writers out there whole have unbeatable humor!
Since I’ve published a couple of lists of quotes that became an instant hit, I’ve been more eager to look for more! I heard you, people, you love your quotes. I get it, and here I am delivering it.
Truthfully speaking, not all of these quotes may seem funny now until you actually bump into a scenario during your travels that will truly relate to some of these funny travel quotes.
I, for one, relate to many of these, and I can’t help but smile. I’ve shared tons of them with my friends who I know will relate to them, and I was not disappointed, they all replied that they have been in that scenario.
What totally beats me is the quote by Ellen DeGeneres about Airline food and the chargrilled marks on it (only in first-class, I suppose. Never had them in economy!) and I totally can imagine her saying this in a really sarcastic but funny way. We all know that they don’t prepare food in airplanes but imagine if they do and they have an open grill in there? I probably will travel the world by land from there on! It was so spot on.
