Wanderlust

wanderlustHappy Friday friends! I hope your week is winding down and that you have fun plans for the weekend. For me, the next week is going to be all about travel. Why you ask? Because I leave for London tomorrow night! Excited is an understatement.

Tomorrow night, my college BFF Lauren and I board our plane to London. We’ll be there for a week and plan on taking a day trip to Paris (OMG!!!). I cannot wait to have an entire week off and to wandering through Europe.

When people ask what my plan is for this trip, my answer has been to planfully wander. Sure, we have an itinerary and a list of places we want to see. But I want to get lost in the city, in the culture and absorb every moment of this experience. This will not be a vacation where I will sit and relax, but I do believe I will come back fully recharged.

Wanderlust is the state of mind I will be embracing while away. But it is also an idea I want to incorporate into my life upon returning. Sometimes being wanderlust gets a back rap. People think you have no direction or no set plan for your life. On the contrary, I see being wanderlust as being passionate to learn more about other places, other cultures. Travel is the only thing you can spend money on that will make you richer.

So don’t plan on hearing from me during the next week. However, I promise there will be a full recap once I’m back in the United States. If anyone has travel tips for London or Paris, please feel free to share!

    You must go to Montmarte in Paris, so beautiful and a great view! Bring rain boots for sure, especially if you’re going to be trekking to Stonehenge/Bath. Have an amazing time!!

    […] -Traveling. I mean, we’ve discussed this already. California, Colorado, Chicago, Myrtle Beach, Florida, Philly (my second home) and the big ones: London and Paris. How many 20-somethings have that list of travel on their resume in just one year?! Not many is the answer. Traveling, whether it be for work or for pleasure, broadened my perspective and gave me some unforgettable memories. […]
