Happy new year everyone. I hope you all had wonderful holidays and may this year be full of travels and experiences.
Do you know this feeling of itchy feet? I’ve felt this strong need to travel again for the last couple of weeks. I know that I’m kind of „stuck“ here for the moment, due to exams, work. But I wish nothing more than unpacking my room, take the most basic stuff, put it in a backpack and hit the road as soon as possible. But I know I have to finish some tasks before. Last week I saw pictures on facebook from my friends Carla and Saskia who have been travelling South America for the last two months. Snow capped mountais in Argentina, beach in Chile, desert in Peru, Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia. Man I was so jealous. Then I saw pictures from my friend Tomislav at a wedding in Bangladesh where he’s been travelling since december.
All I can think of at the moment is, as so often, travelling and I thought I need to find ways to do this at home.
This includes: As always, talking to strangers; walking into random buildings out of curiosity; waking up at 6 am to see the sunrise; hosting couchsurfers; exploring my own city; turns out even after more than 20 years there is so much to discover here.
Here’s a little movie I made after watching sunrise at one of my favorite spots in Munich and cruising around town.
How do you get the feeling of travelling while being at home?
