“It is the journey more than the destination.”
It’s true what they say … that before you reach your destination, you will have to endure and enjoy the journey within, and that is what I have been doing most of my life.
My itchy feet started early in life. I have no qualms traveling solo around my country, which I carried through my international sojourn. My travels are both for wandering and work.
As I reinvent my blog, and reboot my love of writing. I like to get you on board my journey as I near the half-century of my life. Let me tell you about the life I lived, am living, and discover what the future is.
Wanderlust (wan·der·lust | \ ˈwän-dər-ˌləst \)
: strong longing for or impulse toward wandering
Wanderlust Has German Roots
For my part, writes Robert Louis Stevenson in Travels with a Donkey, “I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.” Sounds like a case of wanderlust if we ever heard one. Those with “wanderlust” don’t necessarily need to go anywhere in particular; they just don’t care to stay in one spot. The etymology of wanderlust is a very simple one that you can probably figure out yourself. “Wanderlust” is lust (or “desire”) for wandering. The word comes from German, in which wandern means “to wander,” and Lust means “desire.”
