Favorite Travel Quotes: Just Want to go a-Travelling

“Don’t wanna sleep, don’t wanna die, just wanna go a-travellin’ through the pastures of the sky.”

― Holly Golightly*

When you think of women in travel, Holly Golightly probably doesn’t come to mind. But Truman Capote’s novella Breakfast in Tiffany’s starts with her leaving Africa, and ends with her headed for Brazil and traveling the world. Whether she was struck with wanderlust or just running from (or after) love is debatable.

Either way, we can identify with her little song. We are rarely happier than when we’re “travelling through the pastures of the sky” en route to a new adventure, a favorite destination, or a city we’ve never seen.

When Truman Capote penned Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1958, a woman traveling the world alone was a rare thing. Even in the revolutionary 1960s (the movie debuted in 1961), the solo female traveler was not common. It would be a stretch to say that Hollywood paved the way for women in travel, but Audrey Hepburn’s enigmatic role may have helped normalize it.

Side Note: If you’re a fan, you can actually have breakfast (or, at least, brunch) at Tiffany’s! The Blue Box Café at the flagship Fifth Avenue store in New York looks just like Holly Golightly might walk in for her reservation at any moment. Which is important, because you’re not likely to get in without a resy, and they are booked months in advance. We know…we’ve tried. Repeatedly. (Image: Time Out New York)
