Then last year, I barely traveled. It was a mix of having a new job again, bad timing and just.. I don’t even know. I knew I needed to fix that this year but it wasn’t until a recent conversation with coworkers that really made me take action. I was out getting lunch with a couple girls on my team and we were talking about possible vacation plans this year. They spoke first mentioning Greece, Berlin, Dublin, Turks & Caicos and more. And when it got to me, I said hopefully California, Florida and maybe Montreal. But in my mind I was thinking — WHY ARE ALL MY TRIPS IN THE US?! How come I don’t have plans like that? Why is everything a “maybe” for me?
Since then, I also booked tickets to California to see said friend and my cousin. I just feel like I can breathe easier now. I mean, that probably sounds dramatic but I genuinely felt like I was stuck in a rut last year and I’m determined to not let that be the case again. Traveling always seems to clear my mind and I’m looking forward to days of escaping to somewhere brand new.
Do any of you guys experience wanderlust as strongly?
And if any of you have been to Dublin before, I'd love recommendations!
