On the road to Vagabondia that lies beneath the stars.

Over the world and under the world
And back at last to you

9) Yours is the open road.
The bitter song, the heavy load
That I'll never share
Though the offers still there
Every time you turn around

10) Got no time for spreadin’ roots
The time has come to be gone

14) "There are two ways of getting home, and one of them is to stay there." -G.K. Chesterton

15) “Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things - air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky - all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.” - Cesare Pavese

16) Light Years by kylie minogue

17) "There's a race of men that don't fit in,
A race that can't sit still;
So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will.
They range the field and rove the flood,
And they climb the mountain's crest; Their's is the curse of the gypsy blood,
And they don't know how to rest."

— Robert W. Service

18) Quarter moon better than none
When you travel the night road

Quarter Moon by Mattea Kathy

19) I'd like to settle down but they won't let me
A fugitive must be a rolling stone
Down every road there's always one more city
I'm on the run, the highway is my home
The Lonely Fugitive by Merle Haggard

20) "You're not sorry to go, of course. With people like us our home is where we are not... No one person in the world is necessary to you or to me."
— F. Scott Fitzgerald (This Side of Paradise)

21) Wild heart, child heart, all of the world your home.
Glad heart, mad heart, what can you do but roam?
The Wanderlust by Robert William Service

22) “-we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life.”
Jack Kerouac

23) Where Ever I May Roam by Metallica

24) Hoist the Colors from PotC:AWE

25) Grin like a dog, and wander aimlessly -Paul Theroux

26) It works in me like madness, dear, to bid me say goodbye;
For the seas call and the stars call, and oh! The call of the sky.
-Wander-Thirst, Gerald Gould

27) I would have gone anywhere with anyone…
wild with longing for the whole unvisited world.

and I have broken down before the wind.
- Arna Bontemps

29) I became a lone wanderer
without sense of time lost;
-Gordon Parks

30)Where am I going? I don’t quite know.
What does it matter where people go?
Down to the wood where the bluebells grow
Anywhere, anywhere, I don’t know.

31) “Half the fun of travel is the esthetic of lostness.”
-Ray Bradbury
