wanderlust

I have always had a wandering heart. My parents grew up in the same town where they live now, but they have always told me to explore the world.
When I was younger and people would ask what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would just say I wanted to travel the world. That is still true to this day. I have a job that I love, but if I could drop everything to see the world, I would in a heartbeat.
Living a nomadic lifestyle is my dream. I don’t want to stay in one place for longer than two years, although I have been in my college town for five years, but hey, you gotta do what you gotta do.
I want to see every state and every continent that I can. There is so much that this world has to offer and I want to experience it all. I don’t think my soul will ever be filled if I don’t travel.
Being a nomad would be fun. Living life with no set home has always been a goal of mine. Home is not a place to me, but a mindset. When I am with the people that I love then I am home. If I have people who I love all over the world, then I will be home no matter where I go.
I would travel with my dog and I love her very much so everywhere we go would be home.
I don’t really have any specific course that I want to take. I know I want to see every state, but I especially want to see the Pacific Northwest. I think that will be my next destination. Or maybe it will be somewhere I will be able to experience a truly brutal winter because, being from the south, I have never seen a true winter.
I consider myself old, but in the grand scheme of things I’m still very young. I haven’t even made it to 25 yet. I still have my whole life ahead of me and I don’t think the desire to travel will ever go away.
I want to be a nomad. I want to live life traveling from place to place, meeting new people and eating new foods. I want to see the sunrise in Australia and a sunset on the islands of Hawaii.
I want to visit ancient Buddhist temples and pay my respects to the people who have helped shape the world we live in today. I don’t want to stay in one place for the rest of my life.
Life would be boring without exploring.
