I was never one that was obsessed with travel. Don’t get me wrong, I went on holidays and I loved every moment of them; I’ve been to so many amazing countries with my family that I don’t even know where to start. However, I’ve never considered myself someone with a passion for jetting off to amazing places and experiencing different parts of the world.
I don’t know when or how it happened, but that’s all completely changed.
All I want to do right now is travel. I find myself obsessed with buying holiday clothes and dreaming of different places and sights and foods and wanting to absorb as many different cultures as I can. I’m planning more holidays than I have time for and saving every penny I have; travelling has become a massive passion and I honestly don’t know when and why this changed for me.
I think part of it comes down to how open the whole process is… You are immersed into this new place and culture that you’ve never experienced before; everything’s new and exciting and the world is your oyster and I can’t help but thrive off of the feeling. I have pages of my bullet journal dedicated to labelled maps of each continent, and I shade in every country that I’ve been to. I’m feeding my new found addiction and honestly I wouldn’t change it for the world.
I already have 2 countries lined up: Austria in April (For free! There will be more on that at a later date…) and Chicago in June, but I also have another possible 3 or 4 countries in the works for this summer. Every part of me wants to book every cheap flight I see and make my way to as many places as I can, and honestly right now travel is the main thing motivating me to save my money (post all about my saving process here). I don’t know how long this feeling will last… Maybe it will be a forever thing, maybe this is just who I’m meant to be, I don’t know. However, I am basking in it as much as possible right now and I can’t see that changing anytime soon.
As you may know, I have a Youtube channel now, and I really want to get into travel vlogging this summer. (As far as I know) I only get one life, and this is probably the only time where I’ll have no real commitments and can get up and leave the country if I want to (Provided that it’s in the summer). So, now is really my time to feed this passion of mine and travel as much as I can within my means.
Haven’t done a ramble like this in a while! How do you feel about travelling? Do you have any countries booked? Let me know in the comments!
Lots of love,
