The Struggles of a Wanderlust | Travel

All I want to do is travel. A lot. Everywhere.
I want to see everywhere and do everything and live a wonderfully nomadic life, drifting around forever. *sigh*.

However, for most functioning humans, that is a damn hard thing to do. Those pesky little "commitments" pop up around every dream filled corner. Psh. Who needs commitments anyways.
How do we balance our life verus our dreams? Welcome to the daily struggles of any wanderlust with a life. (Lol, look at me pretending I have a life).

struggles of a wanderlust

1. Planning to quit your job, sell your house and travel the world out of a backpack.
But tearing up at the thought of leaving your beloved dog/cat/fish (???) behind.

2. Making an exhaustive list of all the holidays you want to go on in the year before counting the pennies... and dust in your purse. And dying inside.

3. I only get how many days holiday a year??!!

4. Spending almost zero time doing anything productive because daydreaming about your future one-day-when-I'm-rich travels is far more fun.

5. Falling so deeply in love with foreign food that you having a constant craving that can never be filled when you are home (hello, trdelnik, I'm talking to you).

6. Alternatively, if you are lucky enough to find the food that you love so dearly you have to experience the bitter disappointment of it never being quite as good. At all. Ever.

7. Sinking into deep despair whenever you catch a glimpse of a photo or keepsake from your last trip but refusing to keep them hidden so suffering permanent holiday blues. THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.

9. Wondering how it is even possible to feel so homesick about places far away from home, and the feeling that you may never be fully "at home" in one place.

Do you experience any of these? What other "wanderlust struggles" do you face?

  5. So, so me. Especially being a broke college student stands in the way of my dreams :P That, and the lack of people who'd want to travel with me. All of my friends are either broke or don't want to go to non-European countries...
