Australia: The Birth of Wanderlust

I came across this article the other day and it really struck a cord with me. I found it so interesting that my trip to Australia 10-ish years ago truly was the beginning of my passion for traveling and this article was essentially saying exactly that.

Many destinations can teach a traveler something, but Australia is in a league of its own. Because it is a country AND continent and is so vast, there are many different aspects to Australia. You can go to Sydney and explore the Opera House and Harbour Bridge, but there is so much more to Australia than Sydney. You will never plan a trip long enough to see it, but you will find the most beauty in the most unexpected parts of Australia and come back with a few fun new sayings. Because Australia is such a unique  and varying destination, it’s sure to turn any homebody into the most wanderlust of us all.

My Inspiration

I’ve always had a passion for traveling and seeing everything that other cultures have to offer, but then again, doesn’t everyone say that? I will never forget the day that I knew traveling was a true passion of mine. It was Christmas 2001 and my family and I were in Australia. I had been begging my parents to go the minute I saw “Our Lips Are Sealed” with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. I wanted to see the Opera House, go to the Taronga Zoo, climb the Harbour bridge, and lay out on Bondi beach. There was just something about the easy, laid-back living that intrigued me, and still does to this day. Since then my family has been globe-trotting the world, trying not to go anywhere twice, and experience all we can. One day I’ll make it back to the land of Oz.
