The above words describe the emotions, feelings and moments that the world can offer us if we simply find adventure. This past week of university holidays I have done exactly this. I made plans, but I also did not make plans; either way I have still explored more in this past week than I ever had in a holiday period.
I PLANNED a mini-roadtrip to Maleny and Montville with university friends and it was amazing. We ran from clingy restaurant waiters, nearly died trying to drive up steep slope, Holly got attacked by a wild turkey, we accidentally ended up on government property… and then quickly drove away and visited the lovely Lake Baroon.
A few friends and I spontaneously had lunch in the back of a ute down at Rocksberg.
Rach, Tay and I headed down to Lake Samsonvale, had a picnic and hiked. The end of that day resulted in me getting a paralysing tic and rushing to the ambulance to get it out just in time to get back to the cinema to see the advanced screening of The Fault in Our Stars.
We had a movie night at the twins place where cheap $4 wine was consumed along with Noodle Box and McDonalds. We saw The Fault in Our Stars for a 2nd time after sitting in the cinemas for about 1 hour and a half deciding what we were going to see.
My brother, sister and I went to Bastille. That was fun.
But Tay, Jess, Rach and I went to Ellie Goulding first; that was even better.
AND EVEN MORE!
So I guess that brings us back to these words ::
EXPLORE | ADVENTURE | WONDER | TRAVEL | SEE | HEAR | TOUCH | VISIT | MARVEL | BE AMAZED | BE TOUCHED | BE WANDERLUST
They are all pretty self-explanatory; except the last, my favourite – BE WANDERLUST
#BeWanderlust is sort of my own personal hashtag, it has a certain significance as to how I want to live my life. Wanderlust is “a strong desire for or impulse to wander or travel and explore the world” (taken from the very academic, scholarly source of Wikipedia…); and this definition is exactly the way that I want to live my life.
So to all you homebodies or couch potatoes. Get outside, get lost, explore and #BeWanderlust.
