Now is about that time in the year where I suffer from a severe case of wanderlust.
Exams are looming, revision is endless, the sun is out pretty much all the time (a pretty rare occasion here in Wales!). 
And I just want to be out there - exploring, travelling, meeting people, learning new languages, doing new things...

The world is full of endless possibility, and right now (as happy as I am here) I just long to experience it; live it.

Some put it down to stress - saying that the longing to be elsewhere will fade as soon as summer arrives, and school is done forever.
But those who know me are aware that I've always longed to explore. To fill my head with stories and memories; to experience a different culture - a different lifestyle - even if it's only for a short amount of time.

I'm not talking about leading a nomadic existence; I already feel as though I've 'found myself'. 
Greece showed me that you can travel without being a tourist, but also without giving up everything.

And that's what I long to do.


  1. This speaks to me in a spiritual level. Summer already started here in the Philippines, but I can't shake off that feeling of wanting to explore more. I mean, I'm going to spend a few weeks of my summer in a different place, yes, but I kind of always feel like it's not enough? I don't know. It's been bugging me for days on end. But it's a great thing I get to read posts from people all over the world, kind of like giving me a taste of what their life is like. I get my head to blur the constant need to go somewhere by reading other's blogs and blogging. :')

    Sorry for rambling! Also, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award! It's totally up to you if you'll do it or not, but I'll leave the link to the details anyway:
    Have a lovely day and best of luck on academic work! :)

    1. It's so fascinating to learn about other countries/cultures through blog posts - that's one of the greatest perks I feel from blogging. I often find it quite strange that if I hadn't set up my blog, then I wouldn't get to experience all these things! I wouldn't be posting these comments to you and Sarah for a start [I feel like I'm getting too philosophical for my brain to handle at 10pm. I'll stop blathering now!]

  2. Oh, I so wish I was able to travel. Travel and explore. I feel like there are so many different experiences I could be having right now, and I'm not. My town's really tiny and it's claustrophobic sometimes.
    Oh and I've also nominated you for the versatile blogger award! :) The details and stuff are on my blog, if you're interested.

    1. I definitely agree with the small town comment. I absolutely love where I live, but sometimes I just long to be elsewhere. My mum always says that I've always wanted to try new things, ever since I was little!

  3. Hi guys, thank you both for your comments - I'm so glad I'm not the only one that feels this way! And thank you, too, for the nominations. I've started on a generic post, but I probably won't post the actual one until after my exams [mid-June]. But it WILL be posted. Eventually. Just so you don't think that I'm not wanting to do it!!!
