Some people have a wander lust that will not die. They have to travel and see the world. They have to explore and keep moving. Yet others don’t understand this desire to see the world. They’re happy to stay home. They are okay with the fact that there are people who are extremely opposite of them yet.
Yet there are still others who take it to another level. They don’t get what the big deal is about traveling. They can’t understand the desire to travel to strange places, try things that might put them at risks, and the costs of doing it all. These people do not understand the love of traveling and the desire to see the world, they also criticize those who do.
“Why do you want to spend that kind of money to go there?”
“Be careful, you might catch something.”
“It’s to dangerous to fly.”
“I’d rather stick to what I know.”
“You’ve gotta be crazy to do that.”
“I’ll give it a try some day. Maybe when I retire but it’s not for me now.”
To help explain the need and love to see the world, many people have stated that traveling helps them to:
Overcome their fears – fear is usually being afraid of something that is new and unknown to you
Satisfy curiosity – new people, culture, foods, places, animals, experiences
Boost self esteem – once you’ve been there, done that it’s a great experience and this can transfer into other areas of your life
Reconnect – reconnect with yourself (get away from work and the daily routine for a while and discover YOU again) and reconnect with friends and family who you haven’t seen in a while
These are just a few reasons why people desire to see the world. There are many, many other reasons that the wander lust in some people sets the path for them.
Oh, to travel and to see the world is to help us learn more about the world around us globally and locally. “Travel makes me desire home and home makes me desire travel.”
