wan·der·lust/ˈwändərˌləst/ Noun: A strong desire to travel
Ever since I was a little girl, I have always had this undying desire to go explore the world. I just want to go everywhere and see everything that there is to be seen in this huge piece of rock we call home. I want to go travel to the strangest and most unique places, and have those grand experiences that I would just be able to keep and treasure forever. Instead, I end up sitting at home looking through Google Earth… Which is honestly not as lame as it sounds. Google Earth has all those snazzy 360 degree photographs of a whole bunch of cool places I get to stare at relentlessly for hours. It’s almost like I’m there (emphasis on the almost). But back to the point, besides good ol’ Las Vegas and the Philippines, I’ve never really traveled anywhere else outside of Californian borders, let alone the southern portion of the state. And let’s face it, no matter how many times I have ever moved throughout my whole entire lifetime (which is a lot), I have practically always stayed in the same familiar place, and have only seen parts of what this extremely tiny portion of this ginormous planet has to offer. Of course, I’m still pretty young, and I have a whole life ahead of me. After college, and getting a stable job, I want to travel. I obviously could have gone to some far away place for college, but because of reasons, I did not do so. It’s totally fine though. What’s another four years at home when you have the rest of your life to go wandering out into the world?
One place I’ve recently learned about, and would like to go to someday, is this really cool thing in Cancun where you go scuba diving and you get to see all these sculptures that are underwater… It’s a bit scary, but that’s just how I like it. Plus, the fact that it’s underwater with all the fishes and ocean life makes it sound 10x more fun than it already is.
Closing this blog post up, here’s some pretty cool news. My high school graduation present was being brought up by my mother during dinner today. She said I could go wherever I wanted, just as long as it was in the country. So, where do I want to go? With fifty states and 3,794,101 miles of land (according to Wikipedia), I have tons of places to choose from. Anyone want to help me pick somewhere?
