// wanderlust //

i think everyone went through that phase as a kid where they wanted to run away. maybe you packed a bag and made it to the end of the road before you turned around. but the ones who don’t grow out of that — those are the kids with wanderlust. the ones who dream of traveling: breathing new air and touching new ground and seeing new faces.

someday, i am going to leave this suffocating town and see the world, either by myself or with one of my best friends (who we will be calling N for now). so here’s a list of a few places i’m going to visit.

greece. i’m not sure why, but i’ve always loved greece. the food, the history, the myths, and the beautiful sights in general fascinate me. i was allowed to pick a language to study in school, and i chose koine greek — a little dumb, considering no one speaks it anymore. but it’s rather fun to say that i know a dead language.

new zealand. ok, i have to admit that the main reason i want to go there is so i can visit the shire. i’m so short and chubby, people would probably think i actually belong there (i’ve been called a hobbit by several people. yeah, my friends are nice). my copy of the hobbit has been read so many times that the pages are falling out. :)

Desert View Watchtower, Grand Canyon

the grand canyon. the colors remind me of N. and it’s kind of like a huge scar on the earth, which strikes me as pretty cool.

oregon. i blame gravity falls for this one, honestly. i’ll definitely try to find the bill cipher statue. apparently, there are lots of forests in oregon, and i freaking love forests. they’re somehow peaceful and creepy at the same time.

thailand. sadly, i don’t know much about thailand, but it’s so beautiful and i want to try the food.

hawaii. i want to see volcanoes and palm trees and try malasadas! going there by myself sounds a bit sad for some reason, so i hope N is cool with going to hawaii with me. i’m going to make him wear a bunch of those pretty plumeria flowers in his hair. just a warning.

Odda, Norway

norway. my feelings about norway: !!!!!!!!

 when i say i want to go everywhere, i mean it. if it exists, i want to explore that place. someday.

    Thailand is a beautiful place. <3 My little sister was born there. I hope you get to visit.

    I was a child born and raised by wanderlust. My parents took me all over the world, and that didn't stop once the rest of my siblings were born. I thank them for this, because instead of running away from them, we all ran away together.

    I’ve been to Oregon and the Grand Canyon! They’re both very beautiful, and great places. I feel your wanderlust! I’ve always wanted to go to Hawaii.

    Greece and Norway are so interesting. They have so much history (granted, Greece sufficiently more than Norway) and are both quite pretty.
    That’s really neat that you’re learning Koine Greek! It is a bit difficult learning languages other people don’t know (I’m learning Norwegian haha), but I’m so glad that you’re learning about what interests you!
    Is N the same N that you told me about? (likes Hamilton, right?)

    I have officially been plagued by Wanderlust too. Except I don’t want the plague to go away. I’ve only been in four states, and I have always wanted to go all over the world too. My parents travel the world without me and my siblings, but they do bring back souvenirs! They’ve been to Hawaii, Bolivia, Canada, and all over the U.S. My dad even lived in Italy for two years. But this year we’re going to the grand canyon and I’m really excited! I wish I could take you so that your wanderlust is a bit satisfied!
    Whew, that was a long comment!

    I’m not sure if I count as a person with wanderlust- I’m very much a homebody. However, someday I will go everywhere. (Possibly on a motorcycle with the wind as my guide)

    I hope you get to travel someday; perhaps we would go to New Zealand at the same time, by some alignment of the stars. My mom calls me an underfed hobbit. 😜

    My uncle went to Hawaii once- he said it’s absolutely beautiful.

    Yes those photos make me want to go to all of those photos. But when I graduate college (btw I am in 6th grade) I want to move to London, Paris, Germany, Japan, or Ireland!
    Or maybe all…
    My parents greatest regret is not leaving. And I have a mission to travel the world for my cousin who passed away last year and she wanted to travel so… yeah.
