This quote is particularly touching. So many times in both of our circle of family and friends, we get asked, “Why can’t you just stay in one place?” or “Don’t you think you should settle down now?” or “What kind of relationship can you have if you’re always on the go?”
Sigh. These questions are tough to answer because traveling like we do is not ‘normal’ from the outside yet completely normal, if not mandatory, for our fulfillment and happiness in this life. This quote sums up our need to travel so beautifully and simply.
And so, this is our travel quote of the day (and probably our lifetime mantra): Wanderlust explained. Finally. Thank you to whomever said this. And if you don’t mind, we will be using this as our answer anytime anyone questions our wanderlust.
“Please understand. I have been waiting to leave ever since I figured out there were roads willing to take me anywhere I wanted to go.” – Unknown Author
More on the subject of wanderlust and balancing life is Andrew McCarthy’s new book, Longest Way Home: One Man’s Quest for the Courage to Settle Down.
