Desire…For ticket stubs collected from every train ride taken and the sound of waves splashing while you slept on a boat. For a sunset so beautiful that you forget to take a picture and a rain drenched walk ‘coz you missed your ride. For journeys taken alone with just your thoughts for company and hot mugs of tea made in your tent. For the feel of the soft river bed sand between your toes and a hoarse voice from shouting over thunderous waterfalls.For local cuisines and the smell of a spice market. For a bird’s eye view from a helicopter ride and a crawl through a tunnel to lost cities. For a roof top seating to watch the fireworks and a soaked shirt from a water balloon fight. For clothes full of sand from the desert safari and a slightly burnt marshmallow from last night’s bonfire.For wind blown hair that’s enjoyed a water scooter ride and tired feet that have reached the splendid view on top. For damp, humid weather that comes with exotic tropical islands and insect bites that tell tales of your travels in the rain forests. For salt on your skin from sailing all day and tanned arms from never leaving the beach. For crowded dorms on your backpacking tour to polaroid pictures of the strangers who became friends.
For a road less travelled, a soul more thrilled. A wandering heart’s desire fulfilled.

If you are wondering what has inspired the write-up above, it is this movie/documentary about a girl who takes a solo trip around the world on her sail boat. MUST watch for anyone with a wandering heart that simply wants to see the entire world and never stays put in one place!
p.s – Sometimes an all black outfit with absolutely no color is just what you need!
I want that jumpsuit! Lovee it!
