What It's Like To Crave Travel

There's a big world out there waiting.

What It's Like To Crave Travel

I left home to go away for college for countless reasons, but most importantly because I knew there was so much more to see beyond the town I had grown up in. I spent all my time gazing at pictures of breathtaking countries and planning trips I never knew if I'd be able to take. But I figured I could start by moving a few states away, that's better than nothing right? Although there’s still a world out there waiting to be picked apart and discovered, but for now I’m stuck dreaming about:

The languages.

The thousands of spoken tongues across the globe are so individually intricate and beautiful. It’s astonishing how you can be in one part of a country where they speak one dialect, then after heading south just a little each word means something different totally than the last.

The food.

But who doesn’t daydream about pasta from Italy, pastries from France and gyros from Greece? The authenticity and freshness that comes with each bite would made the wait all that much more worth it. Buon appetito!

The culture.

I want to experience first hand the traditions and beliefs of the natives during each stop along the way. As you make your way from one side of the world to the other it becomes obvious where religions, fashion and societies morph from one into the next.

The sights.

There are endless wonders and spectacles, some obvious and others hidden, that would be a shame not to see. Everything from the Eiffel Tower to the Taj Mahal to the Great Pyramid and all that is in between is worth dropping your plate full of responsibilities and hopping on the next plane.

The people.

I can’t even begin to imagine the types of people whose paths I would cross along my travels. But I expect to meet some young and dumb, trying to find their place as I myself am, and others old and wise, with all the answers to life’s questions already figured out.

The history.

I love that each and every corner of this planet comes with it’s own backstory to make it distinctive. No single town, city, country has the same past as another. No two nations have seen the same people, heard the same language, or experienced the same growth, quite the same as the other.

The world is a fascinating place, and I hope some day you get to see it too.

74 Reasons Why I Love My Best Friend

You can be yourself without having to explain yourself, because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

Have you ever found that one person in your life who you literally could not live without? You can talk to her about anything. She's the only person who will look you straight in the eyes and say, "You're stupid." You two can ride around or sit at your house for hours and always have something to talk about. You can be yourself without having to explain yourself because she accepts you and loves you just the way you are.

8 Spotify Playlists To Get You In The Autumn Mood

The temperature may not be very Autumn-like, but these playlists sure are.

Autumn is my favorite time of the year. The leaves change, pumpkin spice everything hits the shelves (thank you, world!), the 13 Nights of Halloween on Freeform (formerly abcfamily) and the temperature drops. Well, the temperature is supposed to drop. Being in south Alabama, however, means that the temperature may be relatively low early in the mornings, but you're still going to suffer in the afternoon. So if the weather outside isn't getting you in the Autumn mood, maybe these Spotify playlists will help you slip into that wonderful, Autumn state of mind.

First Snow

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

First Snow

I have never understood why grown-ups complain when the leaves are all off the trees, and the temperatures take a decided turn towards the zero on the thermometer. I hear complaints about the impending winter weather, and the driving in the snow and ice. We live in Pennsylvania, so I bite my tongue instead of stating the obvious: Maybe you should move to a warmer climate?
