Inspirational Rhyming Bon Voyage Messages For All

1) Memories clicked by eyes
And stored away in heart,
Create life’s beautiful Collage,

I wish your journey makes,
Sublime bestowal to this art,
Have a lovely trip, Bon Voyage…

2) No matter how many difficulties it might comprise,
Travel is definitely worth it since it makes one wise,
I wish you also get your share of pleasant surprise,
And come back with rich experience as your prize.
Bon Voyage!

3) World is a book, without travel life is just a page,
I’m glad you realized this at such an early stage,

You’ll now gain more experience than your age,
Not something that can be earned like a wage,

It can only be achieved if you escape the cage,
Of illusions of comfort, to meet the nature mage,

To see the true palette painting world’s image,
Viewable only with hunger for true knowledge,

Rewarded only to those who have the courage,
Only to someone like you who dare to voyage...
Bon Voyage...

Inspired by the quote: “The World is a book, and those who do not travel, read only a page.” ~ Saint Augustine
