This morning, I was just scrolling down Instagram just seeing all the lovely pictures of food and parties, etc. and found this picture. And the caption on it made me do a double take and inspired me to write this post today.

I recognise myself with someone who loves travelling a lot and is capable of not getting very homesick. So when I saw the lines written on the picture, I immediately connected with it. But why does wandering to a place with no familiar faces so appealing?

Wanting to know different people, experience different cultures and just to have a whole new world that’s accessible to us is what’s so appealing. The lust to explore and know it first-hand is what travelling is for. An adventure of a lifetime and a couple new stories to tell your future grand-kids.

If you’re afraid to take the step and go out, just know that the world has so much more to offer than what you ‘want’. You discover things about yourself that you never knew. So if you ever get a chance to do so, go for it!

I have wanderlust, what about you?
