Thoughts About: Trips

So if you were following my Tumblr account of Courage to Continue this will look familiar…I bringing back Thoughts About! I will be reposting some of the old ones (like the one below) from my old Tumblr but updated with the addition of my current thoughts. Anyways, enjoy!


Going on a trip is always one of the most difficult and exciting things I ever do or have done.

They’re hard because I’m headed away from my hometown, my family, and my friends. I wish I could banish the feeling of homesickness that comes with every time I am away for longer than a week and the wave of it I get when I touch down on a runway that doesn’t lead me home.

However, the excitement of being in a new place in the world and experiencing a new culture and people makes the hard stuff easier. I love the feeling of wandering without any purpose than to wander and stumble upon the small but important things in life. I love living the dream I’ve been planning since I started planning my newest trip.

After each and every trip, I have a love-hate relationship with the bitttersweet feelings of coming home and leaving a newly discovered place. I’m always experiencing wanderlust for places I have been to and miss, but also for those that I want to visit.

Overall, trips are amazing. Go on at least one in your lifetime, and it will change your perception of the world and yourself. So, my lovely followers, book yourself a ticket to your next adventure. It’s worth more than the price of one plane ticket to travel the world.


(I’d also like to give a shoutout to Ireland, Britain, Nicaragua, Nova Scotia, and New Mexico for giving me the best lessons in travel to date)
