I'm having a bad week at school. Lessons are going ok, students working well, no big disasters, but I've had a bad lunch 2 days in a row. I'm absolutely starving and then when I get to the canteen, I'm faced with soup and rice as the only decent things I want to eat. This isn't really why it's a bad week though. In the last 2 weeks I've stumbled on 2 very different travel blogs. and I've become completely immersed in their experiences. During the 10 minute break between lessons I'm reading post after post, and during lessons I'm day dreaming about me visiting the places they've written about. Both blogs are really well written which is obviously a big pull into reading them, but for me it's more than that. I love to travel, and when I am travelling I always wonder if there is something I'm missing, or I'm thinking about what the next stage of my journey will be, which means that I often miss what I'm actually experiencing at the time. It's something I want to be able to stop, to live in the moment a bit more and that is why I have decided that during my summer holiday, which I'm planning to spend mostly in Thailand, I will not be my usual super organised self, and will do things a little more off the cuff. That's where the best adventures come from! So why is it a bad week? I can't concentrate on anything more than seeing new places and experiencing new things. I think I've developed an 8 month itch! (insert obvious joke here)
My wanderlust knows no bounds.
