Wanderlust

fall2 [280572]

Here’s a little fact for you: I have never been outside of Canada. I have traveled all over Canada; visiting Quebec, British Columbia, Ontario, but I have never stepped onto the land of another country. I dream of going to Australia, Africa, Europe and even Canada’s neighbors to the south, good ol’ United States of ‘Merica.

When I dream of traveling, I dream of going to remote, untouched places. I know that the Eiffel Tower in Paris is beautiful, that the Empire State Building in New York is breathtaking, but for some reason I have absolutely no desire to visit those places. When I travel I want to experience the city as if I am a local, visiting the local shops and eating at the local restaurants. I don’t want to spend my time fighting the crowds of tourists, I want to explore the hidden parts of the city. Like so many other people in this world I have caught the wanderlust spirit, but for now the dream of back packing across South America is not plausible. Hopefully one day I will be able to experience the world, and venture beyond the border of Canada.

  1. I’ve been outside the country before, yet never explored beyond Ontario or Quebec! So lucky you’ve been able to experience our country like you have (: For some reason I always assumed you were from Ontario! Lovely post~

    1. Thank you my dear! I am extremely grateful that I have been able to experience Canada, the culture is amazing and differs from province to province. I am actually originally from Ontario but have since relocated to Alberta :)

  2. Oh I love this thoughtful post! And I think I’m the same way too… I would rather experience a different cultural lifestyle than just hop between the landmarks. I’m so excited for your future world travels! Endora

    1. Thank you Endora! Glad to know a fellow wanderlust! I hope to start traveling very soon, so wish me luck!
