I’ve got the travel bug, I can’t come to work today 

Travel bug?

So since packing my things and leaving home this year to travel the big unknown, I’ve seen amazing cultures and had fantastic experiences; my current life goal is to just do more of this. It’s what has inspired me to create this blog and keep an online diary of my journey. Of course I’m not the only one. Look online or on Instagram and there are hundreds and thousands of people doing exactly the same thing. Travelling seems to be the new in thing.

Whether it’s referred to as the travel bug, wanderlust, coddiwomple or something else enticing, we all have the same feeling. What exactly is that feeling though? In my eyes it’s a fear of routine, a fear of the mundane commonplace of work then home and so on. It’s the fear of leading an unfulfilling life and letting your years pass you by. (I am Sagittarius after all!) We all aim to travel the world in order to have beautiful adventures, and to give our life some further meaning.

I love and miss my hometown and of course my family and friends. However, whether I go home tomorrow or in ten years from now, I know not much, if not nothing will have changed.

There isn’t really a purpose to this post. I was just thinking about all the people earning a living, and living that life to the full by travelling full time. Whether it be blogging, photography, marketing or whatever, they really do seem to have made the ideal life choice. Of course that’s just my opinion. Not everyone feels the urge to wander around in unknown cities, and lost in translation with locals from a culture so different from your own. For me I see that as making the most of the life we have been given.

The world is so small yet so big at the same time; I want to witness all it has to offer. Hopefully one day I can create myself a career out of doing what I love. I want to visit everywhere on my bucket list. I wish the best of luck to everyone currently doing that and truly hope they find success.

Due to the growth of social media in recent years, there are more opportunities these days to immerse yourself in admiration for new destinations. Not only that, social media has allowed us to engage in a richer travel experience than ever before. From meeting other travellers online, sharing experiences and recommendations, and sharing photos and memories that will last a lifetime. I am grateful to be in my 20’s in a time where learning about the world has never been so easy.

This has been nothing but a rambly post, so thank you for taking the time to read it.
