Living With Wanderlust


Part of the reason that I have been finding it difficult to keep up with regular posts at the moment is because this blog is a constant reminder of everything I have achieved, and everything that I did while I was travelling. In case you hadn’t already guessed, by the name of this whole blog, I have an overwhelming and incurable case of Wanderlust. This blog is a constant reminder that last year I was travelling, and seeing new places and doing new things and recently that is all that I can think about.


Lately, I spend way too much time on airline websites, looking up the prices of flights to pretty much every country going – and if I add one more travel blog to my favourites bar I think even my laptop might look at me like I’m losing it.


I am itching to travel more than I ever have in my entire life. It’s all I can think about when I’m at work, when I’m at home, or scrolling through instagram. Everyday I walk the same route to work, and then I go out to the same coffee shops and the same bars at night – and don’t get me wrong, I do love it. I love my job, and I love my friends, and I love my town. I just wish that I could take a little break and just go somewhere completely different.


That is the problem with Wanderlust, and I have learnt over the years that it is something that I am probably going to be dealing with for most of my life. I know that I am not going to be satisfied until I have set foot in every country, met every person and tasted every kind of food. And I know that this dream is, in reality, pretty impossible but that’s what I think about. There’s so much to see, and so much to do, and I can feel this inexplicable pull inside my chest telling me just to go – buy a one way ticket somewhere and just explore somewhere that I’ve never been.

Hopefully that day will come soon.

    I can definitely sympathise with you! The problem is that, when you work, you feel like you can’t just LEAVE. Even with vacations and switching shifts and a short trip you still feel guilty. But you need to work! Our world definitely does not accommodate a need for adventure. Plus, for me, the Canadian dollar is doing so poorly everything is that much more expensive, haha.

      It is difficult to get away when you’re working full time, which is why I’m hoping to get some of this wanderlust out before I finish this gap year! I hope you can find time to travel! Thanks for the comment x
