Wanderlust has always been part of my makeup you could say. I always dreamed of travel and also lucky enough in my early twenties to be able to travel the world, but also live aboard in the UK. Lately I have been feeling a little homesick for that traveling bug, to see sights unknown and meet new people and new cultures as well. Alas with Covid outbreaks and grounded my travel ideas have pretty much been put on hold. Don’t get me wrong, I love living in Perth, Western Australia. But I still hunger after a new horizon and adventure to go along with it all.
And so because I can’t travel physically instead I read books, magazines and watch travel shows just to feel that buzz of wanderlust. Maybe not the same you might say. But safe anyway and I do not need worry about all the little things about traveling that we seem to gloss over. Long haul flights, tiredness, money and planning trips. Kinda fun without any loose ends I guess.
Summer is coming soon and so will big long Summer holidays, what I will do ? Not sure, but I will travel again one day. There are still places on my bucket list, maybe it will take time. I am happy just for now, to read and watch travel shows and read travel journeys in books.
Maybe I can’t fly but I can certainly make plans to make that dream come true. I did it before, as a teenager with an impossible dream to go see the world. I saved and worked hard and I did it, traveled the world. Nothing is ever forever, it is not permanent, neither is this situation we find ourselves in. There will be a silver lining and I can not wait to see what will happen in the future.
Time to hit the travel guides and see where the dream journey may take me. Never give up your dreams.
