I have the desire to see things. This desire grows larger in me every day. Some days it is so big that I can think of nothing else. I want to see buildings, I want to see people, I want to see rivers and lakes, I want to see everything. My desire to travel has nearly turned into a need. It’s as if my body needs to travel and do new things in order to survive. I have this burning fire roaring in my stomach with flames that spell out travel.
It’s not quite an obsession…yet. Yes, I may be checking the price of plane tickets to European destinations almost everyday, but I am planning on making a trip over there in the very near future. The timing depends on the outcome of some other things going on in my life.
Does anybody else get this feeling? Does it usually get better after traveling or does it just get stronger? If I can’t make it abroad soon, I just may have to take to the car and drive somewhere, anywhere. I have a craving for something new, something foreign, something unknown.
We always talk about how the teen and college-aged years are the times when you figure yourself out. Honestly, I think you spend your entire life figuring yourself out and you are lucky if you get even remotely close. Right now, the way that I am going to figure myself out is through travel. Quite honestly, this makes me immensely excited. I am so ready to begin this adventure. Yes, traveling alone will be a little scary at first, but then it will be great. Not to mention, that in travel you are never really alone because there are a ton of other people out there doing the same thing, traveling along.
I can’t wait to get out there and travel, see beautiful things and meet all of you! 🙂
