15 Indications That You Have Certified Wanderlust
There is something about travelling that is addictive. People who embark on this wondrous life journey can’t think about any other career paths. The level of satisfaction and calmness of mind that you derive from travelling is a completely different experience in itself.
So are you one of those who crave for wanderlust? Do you lead your life the ‘traveller’s way’? Have a look at this checklist and see how much of a bullseye we have hit upon your desire to travel!
#1 Backpack always on the go
It is as if your intuition packs your bag and not you. You are prepared to fleet into the unknown, anytime.
#2 Music reminds you of travel
You relate to every word and syllable of any song and wander off into a completely different land. Every song you listen wants to make you travel.
#3 Scaring the wits off someone who has just returned from a trip
“How was the beach?” “How was the scenario?” “Is it too hot?” “Too cold?” “When can I go there?” “I’m packing my bags already!”
#4 Demanding souvenirs
Well, if you can’t visit the place yet, might as well have a part of it with you right?
#5 Can’t keep still
What if you haven’t travelled the world yet? You can surely walk around as much as you like! Because the stillness of life is just isn’t for you.
#6 Saving for trip
Spend minimum money upon clothing. Spend money only on necessary food items. Very little money for other rations. Splurges like a boss for travelling.
#7 Bursting with stories to share
An enthusiastic listener is all you demand as you go on to share some of the lucrative anecdotes of your travel adventures. If you are a writer, then you probably already have a blog dedicated to these stories.
#8 Street smart
Maybe you are not a bookie but definitely know how to live the life the street smart way. You are probably also a lot wiser than people perceive you to be. As St. Augustine said, ‘The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only one page’.
#9 Worldwide friendship
Even if you haven’t visited the place yet, chances are that you already have a pen pal or an online friend who is as equally excited about travelling as you are. You probably also have left a trail of other travel companions that you met along the way who have been a part of some of the most beautiful journeys of your life.
#10 Google search filled with new places
Basically your full time job.
#11 Bucket list filled with travel destinations
And things related to travel and adventures.
#12 Prepare for the unexpected
‘Have to travel all alone in the dead of the night to Madagascar? Don’t worry, I’m all set!’
#13 There is no place like a permanent home
Because you are the child of the world who can live literally anywhere and everywhere.
#14 Eager to try out new things
Unafraid and adventurous and the ‘never say never’ attitude. You go, traveller.
#15 Snores anywhere and everywhere
‘I don’t need a bed as long as I can dream of different places’ – the motto of a travel addict.
