Do you have wanderlust?

I keep thinking it's one of those things I'll grow out of. I've had this itchy, anxious need to get-up and get going for as long as I can remember. When I was young I thought it was just a need to move away from my home state (Maine) and live in a new place.

In my 20’s I was living in Manhattan and I still had this feeling and thought being an international flight attendant would quench my wanderlust. I found that traveling around the world, literally, only fueled my desirers. I now live on a small island in the middle of the Caribbean; people say “I’m living the life in paradise.” Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy, but I still have that itchy need to get on a plane and experience a new part of the world I had never imagined.

Maybe wanderlust is part of who I am? Um…do you have any recommendations on must see places in the world?


  1. I think wanderlust is just a part of you from how you described yourself. That's not a bad thing...maybe a little expensive and not good if you end up having lots of children, but it's definitely do-able. I think you'll be able to see more of the world because you want to see it.

    I really haven't traveled much myself other than to the Southern parts of the U.S. so I'm definitely not well-versed in international destinations. Where is it that you want to go? :)

  2. I can totally relate! I have serious case of wanderlust~ it drives my husband crazy.

  3. Thanks Cindy :) it might be easier for me to make a list of where I don't want to go, hahahaahhaaa....I still haven't been to most of the obvious places, Paris, any where in Italy, Croatia, I would love to rent a sailboat in the med and do all the little islands. Southeast Asia, China, Brazil, Spain, Chile, Nepal.....and soooo very many more places that I would love to see.

    Thanks Kendall, glad i'm not alone:)

  4. my wanderlust usually involves ANYWHERE with peace and quiet! i'm not picky about the location. beautiful pic.

  5. rebecca, I use to have any place that wasn't third world, or a place i'd been before, but now i'm just not that picky, i'll go anywhere. have you been to Dominica? it is a nature lovers heaven if you like it quiet and beautiful.
