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).
Wanderlust is looking out towards the distant peak– planning your route to reach the top.
Wanderlust is paddling across a lake just to see your surroundings from a different angle.
Wanderlust is experiencing a home in the wilderness, just to make getting lost more accessible.
Wanderlust is life on the road..
..with destinations that are worth reaching.
Wanderlust is knowing when to plop down your bottom and take in your surroundings..
Wanderlust is getting off of solid ground..
..in any way, shape or form.
Wanderlust is occasionally disconnecting yourself from society.
Wanderlust is making the best of the seasons.
Wanderlust is the first cup of coffee to kickstart your adventure..
..and the moon rising at the end– only to begin the next.
Wanderlust is just going….
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.
