Recently, I can’t seem to stop daydreaming about travel. Do you ever get itchy feet like this? It happens to me every couple of months. When I’m traveling I long to be settled – have a neighborhood, a steady job, a dinnerware set – and when I’m settled I long to be traveling again. I tried to overcome it this week with a visit to Little India here in Atlanta. I shopped at Patel Brother, where you feel like a tourist walking between the rows of unidentifiable spices and colorfully boxed incense. I bought sugar coated fennel seeds like they serve at Indian restaurants. I even got my eyebrows threaded. It helped for like a day, but today my wanderlust is back with a vengence.
Here are some places I’ve been daydreaming about:
The lakes and woodlands of Maine. Wouldn’t you love to be in that canoe right now?
One of my life-long dreams is to volunteer at an elephant orphanage in Thailand. (Photo by Steven McCurry).
Do you ever get itchy feet? How do you deal? Where do you fantasize about travelling?
