anderlust: a strong innate desire to rove or travel about
I LOVE this word. I first was introduced to this word about 7 or so years ago by a friend who was using the word to describe how I was feeling at that moment. He said: "So you've got a lot of wanderlust, huh?" At the time, I had been telling him my plan to move back to San Francisco as soon as I figured out what I wanted to go back to school for- (I was a public school teacher, and though I loved it, knew I wanted to try something else).
Our last visit to San Fran, 2007.
Don't get me wrong, I really do love this place, and our families are both here, and I love my job...but I still have major wanderlust...especially for San Francisco. We went to Europe for 10 days last summer on our belated honeymoon, and that took care of the wanderlust for a minute. I'm currently thinking of another trip to cure the itch--any suggestions?
The view of the amusement park from our balcony at Gran Hotel La Florida in Barcelona. If you've ever seen Vicky Christina Barcelona, this is the amusement park shot in that film.
Do you have wanderlust?
