"My heart is warm with friends I make, and better friends I'll not be knowing. Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take, no matter where it's going." Edna St. Vincent Millay
When wanderlust is calling, no one can stop, avoid, or decline its voice. It is like a constant hum in the mind, and helpful, too; there are so many friends to make, and so many more journeys to take, on which you can learn lots and lots in life. Without travel, life is only a task to perform, only a chore to do.
Travel for experience and wisdom, for knowing the world, but more importantly for knowing oneself. Travel for work and for fun, but more for the delight of it. Travel – by all means, travel. Life is short, and there is so much to know and learn. Even if money is short, go ahead and take that plunge; earn on the holiday, and make it an art to live in small means. Travel teaches you to live better and fuller. Someone with wanderlust will tell you how they feel they need to travel again, as soon as they land back home. This is how addictive it is. This is what the essence of life is.
