The other evening I happened to be looking for a picture on Facebook, and I came across my album of pictures from my trip to Greece this past summer. On most days, seeing a picture from that vacation just makes me smile, but every once in a while I get nostalgic for those three weeks of my life.
The truth is that almost 5 months later, I still feel like I could have just stayed in Europe for a year and traveled and been completely happy. Most days I love being home to be with friends and family… But there are other days when I just feel like dropping everything and traveling the world until I’m just plain sick of traveling.
I’m so excited to go to Florida in just FOUR WEEKS (and a few days)! I need to get out of my city really badly. Not just because it hasn’t stopped snowing in, oh, 4 days? But because I love the freedom to learn a different city and explore new surroundings. Not to mention I’m going to be a wizard and move into Hogwarts this time around, so that’s always a plus.
But seriously, I can’t wait to get away, even if it’s just for 6 days. I’m already trying to decide when my next trip will be and how much I need to save because there is honestly NO feeling like the one you get when you’re somewhere entirely new. I would LOVE to spend a month of my summer visiting new places- maybe I’ll make it happen, but for now I’m going to just keep wander-lusting after every possible vacation I can.
Do you ever feel like spontaneously booking a vacation? Have you ever done it?
