I’ve always loved travelling. Even if it’s a road trip. I feel my heart grow light and my nerves dance as the world around me comes alive. The idea of living a life and never seeing beyond my own garden gate is so frightening to me. Every time I think about it, the erratic chiming of alarms goes off in my head, telling me I need to move. I never know where exactly, I just have to start walking.
I recently watched the film, ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ and I have to admit, I was moved. It smashed my fear of being ‘too old’ or having ‘no time’ into tiny fragments. This won’t last long, however, and soon the mirror of my delusions will be up and fully functioning once more, engulfing me in fears a twenty-something really shouldn’t have.
I’ve just spent the last week exploring my home island of Kyushu, and I’m itching for more. To curb my wanderlust appetite, I decided to make a list of all the places I want to visit and/or revisit, and I thought It would be nice to share them with you. My list is a little small right now, but I’m sure as time ticks on, many will be ticked off and added!
Note: The ‘*’ indicates places I have already been but want to revisit.
- New York City
- New Zealand
- South Korea
Have you been to any of these places? Where are you just itching to go? Please let me know down in the comments.
