Wanderlust.

'wanderlust- 
noun
a strong desire to travel.'

There's something about the cultures, the time zones, the beauty and the idea of escaping that consumes my mind each and everyday. The ability to wake up in a different setting each and everyday, living within your own novel in which you are the protagonist, writing the story for yourself. 
And this feeling, the one we call wanderlust, has the ability to create endless short stories in which we document through our pictures, through our blog's and through our memories.
I'm still discovering corners of beauty in my home town, the infinite beauty of the world surrounds us, you just have to look a little harder. Every insect, flower, person, building and even clothing has its own story's to tell of how it came to be and the events it has witnessed. I envy the bird ,however, they have the ability to take off whenever they want and explore the world to as far as it can fly, battling obstacles upon its journey, fighting the wind and searching for food. It all just seems so exciting and scary. Yet it seems to be a fantasy the birds take for granted.
though, I'm sure if you asked one, they'd more than likely trade a roof for a bed when it comes to sleep.
However, with everything considered i still have this yearning impulse to grab a map, have a mini game of pin the tail on the donkey with it, and spontaneously visit and emerge my self in the culture and people of a place. To pack the bare essentials and fly place to place, with nothing stopping you or pulling you down. To create stories to tell for years to come, to make new friends and learn so much .

Alas, i am 14. Thus, there is 6 things preventing my epic desire to travel-

1. As i have said i am 14
2. Meaning i have to stay in education 
3. Meaning i have to go to school 
4. Meaning i don't have a job 
5. Meaning i don't have money 
6. Meaning i cannot afford, or legally purse my wanderlust.

Not yet anyway.
So here's to the future, to following your dreams. Not everything must be a simple fraction of your imagination, if you want it- make it happen.

  1. I have traveled to four continents and it was amazing.My favorite places have been Australia, Switzerland, California (Los Angeles), and London. When I am older I would love to do a semester abroad when I am in university. But, keep your goals because they can happen. Being in school isn't that bad in the long run because education is very important. I really liked this post. Keep up the good work!

  6. Literally all of this is my exact struggle too! I can't even go basic places, like the mall or Quiktrip, let alone travelling the world *sniffles* Haha, hopefully during college...?

  7. I've travelled a lot with my parents, but now I want to explore the world on my own. I'm facing the same problems as you, though. I'm 18 and all my money is spend on college tuition and books. I can put about €10 aside every month so I can travel one day. At this rate that day will come when I'm in my early thirties :P
