Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost

I recently saw a billboard in the DFW airport that, instead of saying “wanderlust,” used a new (to me) adventurous word: Wanderlove. I like that. I’ve always had the travel bug. The thought of adventure, new experiences, and tasty cuisine excites me. The world might be small after all, but that should motivate brave and bold exploration.

17. Not All Those Who Wander Are Lost.


I’ve learned that not every journey needs an intinerary. Be flexible. Be prepared for last-minute changes. Look for that unique opportunity.

Even without a set-in-stone travel itinerary, taking a journey around the world can be exhilarating and satisfying. I think everyone should visit a different culture at least once in a lifetime.

Goodness. Cultures can change from town to town. You don’t always have to go far to experience something new.

But international travel is something every adult should attempt at least once. Talk about learning on the fly. Life lessons. Language barriers. Traditions. History!

There are many resources available online and in print that make international travel so much easier.

I’d love to share more about my various trips around the world. Soon? Here are some photos from a few of my more recent trips:

Pismo Beach, CA
Redding, CA
Waco, TX
Winter Park, CO
Lungern, Switzerland
Chicago, IL
Petra, Jordan
What’s the takeaway? Wander…and love it!

Make loose plans. Be safe, obviously. But be an adventurer. Try new things. Learn from history. Take notes. Snap photographic memories. Eat and drink local. And tell me later about your experience. I want to hear all about it!

Not all those who wander are lost.
