The innate desire to travel has run through our bones since the dawn of time. Before planes, train and automobiles, wandering is something that we have always done. If your 2018 plans are to roam the earth, seek out new experiences and adventures, completely go for it. The ability to travel is within your realm if it is what you so crave.
We began to wander the earth as soon as we could walk — we moved, foraged, explored and settled. Today, wandering has become much easier since the existence of first world travel and our beloved social media. We have realized how easy it is to jump ship and travel across the pond for a few days.
So you are reading this and saying to yourself — yeah it does look easy, but there is absolutely no way for me to go right now - think again. Wanderlust is simply a state of mind — you can bring that desire to your backyard and still experience the euphoria that is happening within. Visit the cafe down the street that you keep promising yourself you are going to stop by, take a recommendation from your coworker to spend a day at the art museum two hours away, look for the flight to anywhere that is $100 or less — seek out what you want.
If your heart beats for far away destinations, pay close attention to swindling websites that offer error fares on flights, hotel rooms, cruises and experiences. Traveling is not always meant to be luxurious, it is sometimes meant to be a journey. Each journey has a different time stamp and price tag - don’t be afraid to explore your options.
There are many different pathways on this planet, you have planted your feet on your intended route — let your wanderlust reset and reroute your path in 2018. Travel is happening all around you all the time. Set your mind to prosper and move in the direction you desire this decade! Manifest the wanderlust you wish to achieve and create it.
