Surpassing Wanderlust

I suffer from a burning desire to travel; I have ever since I moved to the USA in 2001 for University. It’s often referenced as ‘Wanderlust’, however for some of us, it’s more than that. The experience, the challenge, the feelings, all have become very integral to who I am as a person.

There is so much hatred, greed, envy and intolerance in the world, it sometimes feels as if we are doomed to fail as a species.

Then we look back at our Wandering Memories, where we shared adventures with a host of strangers, from all types of backgrounds, cultures and religions. … More United we stand
