How can a word possess so much power, inspiration and motivation? A word that makes you want to embrace its meaning to the fullest of your potential. It acts as a bar to reach and a horizon to explore.
If a word can shape someone’s life, then what exactly is the meaning of wanderlust?

Wanderlust is following the mysterious trail. Eagerly seeking the unknown, anticipating what is to be found at the end (if there even is one).

We find the definition of wanderlust in our surroundings.
For every person that you ask, the reasoning may be different.
It pulls us out of our bubbles– in return it teaches us how to appreciate every little thing in life. It embodies us and we begin to incorporate the very simplicities of life into our daily routines. It even helps us break our routines just out of curiosity of what will happen.

It helps us to connect with like-minded people that just want to escape from everything for a little bit. They understand that all you really need to be content are some good friends and occasionally the lone adventure to refresh.
It may seem like we summarized wanderlust, but really it has infinite meaning.
With every new experience in life, comes another form of inspiration– you never know what will strike a chord.
Wanderlust is just existing.. without being dormant. You choose your own route.

That is why, at Wanderlust Northwest, we aim for the horizon as our destination– for we know that it can never be reached. With an infinite destination, comes infinite possibilities and adventures.

Stay curious, our friends.

Thinker of stuff, Doer of things. There isn't much that makes me more happy than finding myself in new surroundings with camera in hand. Roadtrips are standard life procedures and the maps in my home are there to inspire me to travel even further. When it comes down to it, I just really like nature..

One thought on “What Is Wanderlust? It Is More Than Just A Word.

  1. It’s pertinent to revisit where it all began from time to time. I thoroughly enjoy the way you are able articulate and photograph the beauties in life; from a coffee shop review to a still capture of a moon rising. I feel the desire to say something clichè like “Keep up the good work!”, but I can tell this is something you will continue to improve in and enjoy without the need of encouragement.
