With just four weeks to go, and handing my notice into work last friday, I couldn’t be more excited to go and travel. I feel as though traveling is in my blood, I feel alive when I’m away and exploring. I can’t explain it, but I feel more at home in a place I’ve never been before. I am the type of person who gets bored with everyday life and often gets itchy feet when it comes to staying in one place. If I had the opportunity I would live out of a rucksack, on the move for the majority of my life.
For those who don’t share my thoughts and feelings of travel or for those who do. You can’t help but get the feeling of wanderlust when you read those pintrest kinda quotes. You feel as though you want to go out into the unknown, explore the world, embrace the culture and marvel in the customs and the heritage of that country. I feel as though traveling is a gift- you have been granted access to the secrets of the dirt track roads that not many people will get the chance to see. I’ve had so many travel experiences in my life, from building playgrounds in Uganda, to being scared in the back of a cab whilst a drunk driver tackles the streets of Deli, India, or feeling the sand beneath my toes in Zanzibar to watching the wildlife drink from the watering hole just outside my room whilst on safari in south Africa. For those contemplating taking the plunge to drop everything and to just travel. I urge you to do just that.
Over the last couple of weeks I have been told unfortunate news which reveals the ugly truth, that life is in fact too short. Don’t spend it watching Saturday night t.v, working in a dead end job or just carrying on with that everyday routine. You are never too old, too young, or too tied down to do the adventure you have always dreamed of. The world is getting smaller, now is the time to see the hidden truths of a place before it becomes commercialised and traditions are lost in the process.
All photos are my own unless stated, obvs the quotes aren’t my own!
I hope this inspires you to not only fulfil your travel adventure, but any dream that you have. You can achieve anything with a little belief and determination.
