wan – der – lust:
having a strong desire to travel.
Last month I was asked the question: What do you want to accomplish / do this year? As a 22-year-old, budding professional and recent graduate at a networking event, the typical and expected answer was to advance my professional career, but to my own surprise my answer was simply to travel.
I have been places around the world and last year as a graduation present to myself, I went to Europe for six weeks going to countries like England, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Germany and Norway. It was the biggest adventure I had in almost 7 years. Before that trip, I went to Vietnam at the wonderful age of 13 and although it was great it was 7 years ago (and I was 13).
Travel was something I always wanted to do but never made a priority. My sister on the other hand – Kimberly, is an adventurer, these past few years she saw more places than people do in their lifetime because to see the world is her priority. And this year, and from now on I am making it mine.
This year I am planning to go to Orlando, Florida (Disneyworld and Universal) as well as Europe. I thought I would take you guys on this journey with me, as I put traveling first, so check back every other Tuesday for the post on how I am budgeting, saving, packing and another random post along the way.
I will forever be in love with places I’ve never been, and people I have yet to meet.
