Wanderlust: The Compulsion to Travel
The world is full of places to visit, it takes a lifetime to be able to visit all of them. Many seasoned travelers have explored popular countries and cities and have challenged themselves with daring adventures that ordinary people would be afraid to try. What drives these people to go on endless adventures?
Imagine the beaches in Hawaii or Spain – what’s the difference? Is the sand, sea, and sky different? You might discover that their cuisine is different from each other, but are the differences between the places you go worth all the money, time, and effort that you spend? So it doesn’t matter whether you’re rolling on the sandy beach in Hawaii or dipping your ankle on a beach in Spain. What’s important is that you are free from all the stress that going to work daily gives you. It is the rest and recreation that traveling gives why you travel in the first place.
The pleasure of experiencing new things is what makes traveling such a bargain. Going to beaches, going swimming, or gambling is not the best way to get a full experience when traveling. Traveling is more fun than all that.
That desire to see new wonders and meet new people draws the wanderlust in your inner being. Few people feel this compulsion that you do and have the chance to fulfill your dreams. Awaken those sleeping desires to explore new heights.
Peer into the adventures of other people, and see what other countries or cities they go that you have never been to. Use the internet as a world travel guide to take you to prospective destinations. There are countless tourist spots you can view just by googling or by searching on youtube.
Be inspired. Have you been to the lovely islands of the Philippines and met its friendly people or visited the thick jungles in Africa? Let your fingers do the walking, just click on the mouse and your computer will take you there.
List down the places you want to visit in your lifetime in a travel bucket list. But, it should include more, like taking that long road trip from the east to the west coast, visiting tribal villages, or just traveling in style on first-class. Capture all these memorable moments in photos and videos. These activities should inspire you to look forward on your next adventure.
The next time you travel, bring a group of friends with you. Take your friends to places you’ve been to before and share with them your wonderful experiences. Bring a friend to that daring adventure you were afraid to go to alone. Ask your friends where they want to go or what experience they want to try.
These tips should inspire you more to travel.
