In today’s photo of the day by Instagram user, Vacation Liquidator, we embrace pearls of travel wisdom spoken by the late Martin Luther King jnr.

While delivering an Assembly Series Address at Washington University in 1957, during a time when racial segregation towered every community globally, King challenged students to continue achieving their goals and refrain from resorting to violence, as violence would lead to their detriment.
He challenged: "If you can't fly, run; if you can't run, walk; if you can't walk, crawl, but by all means keep moving."

As much as the quote relates to the era of racial segregation, it can be applied in all spheres of life, especially travel. Don’t give up on travelling because you are faced with constraints; bite through it or find alternative methods that will help you to get to where you want to be.

You won’t regret it.
