Today was proudly sponsored by the letter B – Today B stands for Blah!
Ok, so here I am again, I got home from work today feeling a little flat and deflated (not a lot, just a little bit) it is Monday but that’s not even it – yes Monday’s suck but the real reason I am feeling a little Blah is that I am thinking about traveling AGAIN!
Today I was daydreaming and I was restless, and while I am planning a trip in June or July of this year; right now that feels like a lifetime away.
So what is the answer? Just put it out your mind and focus on work like a normal person? Sadly that’s not how I roll, and for all you fellow travellers out there you can understand and appreciate my conundrum.
I believe that once you are a traveller you are always a traveller. When that excitement first seeps into your veins and leaves you wanting more, that feeling is hard – almost impress to suppress. While your life circumstances may change, the need to travel remains.
So I ask you again, what do we do? How do we get by and survive the long spells of normality in between trips?
I believe the answer lies in seeking out unfamiliar territory. I have spoken of mini adventures in the past, and these to me are the answers to my problems – well this particular one anyway.
Travelling to me is all about exploring. Travelling epitomise adventure and fun. While I love the challenge and the thrill of discovering new countries and cultures I can still find a certain buzz in visiting somewhere new and exploring the heck out of that town, pretending I am a tourist and unleashing my inner crazy (in a good way!).
Today’s Blah feeling suddenly improved the minute I reminded myself off all the mini adventures I can take on my very own doorstep.
Tonight is now sponsored by the letter E – E for exploring, E for excitement for upcoming mini trips my husband and I are currently discussing.
