I don’t really know how to word this post so I am going to write and just hope that the words come out the way that I intend. Have you ever felt stuck? Like there is so much world to explore and just not enough time to do it in? Now I know that, as a teacher, I have more holidays than the average person but that doesn’t really help much. See, living in South Africa it is incredibly difficult to just hop on a plane to an exotic destination. We have visas, and expensive plane fares to get past first. No spontaneous trips to Scotland for us. No Amsterdam for the weekend.
Now, for those of you who might ask why I don’t explore my own country instead, I have. Granted, I have not been everywhere in the country but I have been to a fair few places. And I don’t want to stay in the same place. I want to travel. I want to get on a plane and travel for half a day, and get off somewhere where people speak differently. Where people are going about their daily lives, not noticing me walking through, in awe of everything.
I love to travel and I feel like there is so much of the world out there that I have yet to see. So much of the world that is unexplored. I want to go on adventures and find out more about myself. I want to meet new people and make new friends. Friends that I never would have met if it weren’t for travel. I just want to know that there is more than this provincial life 😉
So while I dream of places far away, and people that I have not met yet, let me know if you are also one of these people. If you are also thinking about far off places and people unknown. I could sure do with talking to someone about all of the adventures we have yet to take.
If you could get on a plane right now where would you go and why? Let me know in the comments below!
