Luckily enough, I'm going to Chicago in March, and I'm super excited for that! I think it may be the fact that I can't travel alone that makes me want to travel alone. The word "wanderlust" so perfectly describes my current situation. I think everyone is in need of a nice trip/vacation once in a while, to get out of the routine of things. People often forget to find the beauty in life when they are so caught up in a daily routine. We all need to learn to appreciate the places we are, mentally and physically. Sometimes when I get so caught up in dreaming of my next trip, I forget to notice the beautiful city I live in (Palm Springs, CA). Just today I was at the skate park and I almost forgot to notice the most beautiful sunset ever. It's nice to be reminded that I live in a place people come from around the world to see.
And yet, no matter how many times I realize the beauty I live in, I still dream of other places. I dream of the food, and the buildings, and the culture, of places all over the world. I don't think there is a part of travelling I don't like, including flying. In fact, I kind of love flying.
I'm excited to get older and get a car, and a job, and a life and start my nonstop journey of this world. I'm going to my first out-of-the-country trip this June. I'm going on a 19 day trip to Italy, France, and England. (donate to my trip here!!) Having this trip in my future is all that helps me get through the stupid happenings in my day-to-day life.
Anyway, I'm going to get back to dreaming of the world now. What are you excited about?
