Wanderlust. That is something I have experienced my whole life and will happily continue to do so. One of the things that feeds it is all the travel quotes and memes that fill up my Twitter and Facebook feeds these days.
These quotes are meant to inspire and show how you should be experiencing travel and everything the world has to offer. They definitely affect me in a positive way.
