Wanderlust

So according to blogtober I am supposed to talk about my worst vacation, best vacation or both! Truth is I don't have a "worst" vacation or a "best" vacation because they are all the same level of good to me. Each place is a new experience offering up new opportunities. I'm going to kind of skip over that and talk more about "wanderlust."


I like this definition but I don't think it gives enough credit to other aspects. You can wander the world, yes, but you can also wanderlust with people too. Wanderlust is a broad term that basically describes the act of wanting to know and experience everything this world has to offer.

I would travel anywhere at anytime for any reason. You should always go when the opportunity presents its self because of two reasons.
1. You never know who you're going to meet
2. You never know what experiences you'll gain that will develop you as a person.

I want to visit the 

Original Seven Wonders of the World
The Colossus of Rhodes 
The Great Pyramid of Giza 
The Hanging Gardens of Babylon 
The Lighthouse of Alexandria 
The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus

The Natural Wonders of the World
Grand Canyon
The Great Barrier Reef
The Harbor at Rio de Janeiro
Mt. Everest
Northern Lights
Paricutin Volcano
Victoria Falls

The Seven  New Wonders of the World
Chichen Itza, Mexico - Mayan City
Christ Redeemer, Brazil - Large Statue

The Great Wall, China
Machu Picchu, Peru
Petra, Jordan - Ancient City
The Roman Colosseum, Italy
The Taj Mahal, India

Ill start with that list and go from there, but that is my version of TRAVEL Wanderlust.

People wanderlust is a great opportunity too. Get to know as many people as you possibly can, some of them will put you in the most difficult situations to test your character, some will be a blessing on your day, and others will be props in your daily life.  Talk to, be with, laugh with and make memories with as many people possible. At the end of the day that's all you're going to be able to take with you. 

You can experience cultures through these people. Become a more well rounded person by surrounding yourself with others whether they're a negative or positive influence on your life. Wander these people, know their stories and their backgrounds. Of course be genuine and accepting not curious and nosy.
