Wanderlust is a strong desire or impulse to wander, travel, and explore the world.
For the first few months of our lives, we are perfectly content being swaddled in the arms of our mother’s, then something happens, we begin to walk, and this is where things really get interesting. It is mind blowing how quickly a tiny tot can conquer the vastness of a room, scale the bookshelf, and snatch that irresistible, shiny object dangling high on the wall. We were natural explorers, treasure seekers, and aww gazers who most likely preferred to do all their expeditions and plundering in the nude (you know who you are). The truth is, we are perma-seekers, and the tendency to run wild and free still pitter-patters in the hearts of us all, instigating a moment we have to see more, do more, and feel more. Our sense of wanderlust instills an inclination to experience what is around the corner, to scribble your name in the sand, and try something out of your comfort zone. It makes us run faster, climb higher, and breathe deeper, a feeling only satiated through true adventure!
