WPC – Wanderlust

“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” ― Dalai Lama

This week, share a photo that represents travel to you. Whether you’re crossing borders or visiting a nearby neighborhood for the first time, we would love to see how you capture these new environments and interactions!

“because he had no place he could stay in without getting tired of it and because there was nowhere to go but everywhere, keep rolling under the stars…” ~ Jack Kerouac ~

Wanderlust – A strong desire to travel or wander. Yep, that’s me. I have lived in five states, over twenty apartments, owned and sold three homes and one mobile home. You might say I was born with a gypsy soul.

My dream has been to visit all 50 states. A few years ago my sister and I had the opportunity to travel together on a cruise ship to Alaska, our first time traveling together since childhood. Alaska was the last new state to mark off the list leaving only 8 more states on my list to explore. While visiting this beautiful state we shared many adventures – snorkeling, a train ride into the mountains, seeing a glacier, zip lining and many more.

“When we get out of the glass bottle of our ego and when we escape like the squirrels in the cage of our personality and get into the forest again, we shall shiver with cold and fright. But things will happen to us so that we don’t know ourselves. Cool, unlying life will rush in.” ~ D. H. Lawrence ~

 

When I discovered that I could zip line through the canopy of Tongrass National Forest I was so excited. Once at the top of the platform, looking out into the temperate rainforest, tears filled my eyes. It was overwhelming to know that I was actually experiencing such an adventure. I had been zip lining once in the Adirondacks but nothing as exciting as gliding along the rainforest canopy.

When on an adventure, time has no meaning. We stood in line for over a half an hour to buy a coffee at the original Starbucks – my sister doesn’t even drink coffee. To entertain you while you wait, young people rotating to share their talents on violins, guitars, and singing. We also stopped at Pike Place Fish Market to watch employees throwing fish to one another. There were many times we both were overwhelmed with emotion and I shall never forget the experience shared with my sister.
