Wanderlust Wishes

She is free in her wilderness, she is a wanderess, a drop of free water. She knows nothing of borders and cares nothing for rules or customs. 'Time' for her isn't something to fight against. Her life fows clean, with passion, like fresh water. - Roman Payne


Wanderlust is a term I hear used for those who are able to travel a lot, however, its actual definition is 'a strong desire to travel' so can definitely apply to those who don't necessarily get the chance to.

I have been lucky with being able to go to new countries. I was brought up in a family that had a holiday every year if they could. My parents were the type to work all year to give us that 2 weeks away in the summer. On top of this, my Granddad lives in Spain so I have travelled there a lot.

Although I have been lucky with being able to go to many countries already I feel like my time there was somewhat wasted. There is only some much you experience on a 2 week package holiday.

There have been exceptions to this. 2 weeks in Mexico last year was spent doing as many excursions as possible, day trips to Tulum, swimming with Turtles, zip lining and climbing Mayan ruins in Coba. Many of those trips to Spain consisted of rented cars, driving to mountains, regular trips to the salt lakes and seeing wild flamingos.

But again I have been to Greece, Dominican Republic, Egypt and a few others and not really seen much of what their cultures had to offer.

All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost. - J.R.R. Tolkien

 I suppose what I am getting at is that I long for so much more.

You may have seen my 2 previous 'Bucket List' posts. I want to start somewhat of a Wanderlust Wishlist. I am determined t see more of this world. There is so much out there to see and experience that I don't want to waste years on package holidays laying next to a swimming pool. Don't get me wrong, I need a few days relaxation when I am away but I want the memories to go with it!

Nostalgia in reverse, the longing for yet another strange land. - Vladimir Nobokov

If you saw my Jamaican Bucket List you would have seen that this is currently my next holiday destination and some of the things I plan on doing whilst I am there.

I spend a good amount of time experiencing this 'wanderlust', dreaming of the places I would love to go and the things I want to do whilst I am there so why not share this with you guys. Maybe you all can get some holiday inspiration from me and in turn, can offer your own suggestions!

Do you have any countries you feel you just have to go to one day?
