Wanderlust. One that has a strong desire to travel. Wanderlust. Someone that can’t sit still and stay in one place. Wanderlust. A constant longing for wandering near and far. Wanderlust. A person that is always looking for adventure, to explore and to checkout something new.
I’d say wanderlust is a term that can apply to me on a daily basis. Goosebumps appear just at the thought of traveling whether right down the street or to somewhere far, far away. The daydreaming never seems to stop. I am always on Google Maps, reading blogs and looking at the pictures of others. Whenever a trip is confirmed, plane tickets have been secured, an excursion has been booked or I have arrived in a new city or at a coffee shop for the first time, a big smile on my face usually follows.
I’ve had this feeling ever since I was a kid. Lots of time was spent out on the open road with the family. My face was usually stuffed in an old-fashioned atlas or pull-out map telling my parents we should go this way, that way, we should stop here, etc. My eyes were always wide open and wanting more.
Wanderlust has led me to see quite a bit, but there is so much more of this world to capture and see up close. Do I want to be cured of this feeling? No, thank you. Back out on the open road I go!
